Have had a HDC failure message 2x in the last 10 days, and a couple of times before
that. On advice, have been fixing it by taking the cover off the PC, and 'jiggling' the plugs;
but, today is the 1st time I had to start in 'Save' mode after the problem. The display was
pretty terrible (16-bit) till I changed it eventually and restarted with 256 colours.
but, what does it really mean (to me)? Do I need to replace something? An expensive
I have a 486/100 (was upgraded from 486/25), Win95, 8x CD-Rom, 2MB video card
(was changed from a 1MB card).
Has something gone wrong in these upgrades? What are my cheapest options?
I want to keep this one going till Dec./Jan. and then get a new one.
Thanks for any help.
