thank you buwish
I have already looked at that thread. Was somewhat helpful. This is a laptop and does not have any cables the HDD has a socekt like the RAM.
Model 258KA5 from Uniwill Laptop
AMI BIOS 08.00.11
AMD 64 3400 Processor
ATI 9700 Mobility Graphics
When I try to boot, it comes up with numbers in the lower right corner of 0040, then 0060, 0075 and finally stops responding at 0078.
Please any help would be much appreciated.
