My old IBM 386 win 3.11 wont load at all!!
Posted on 2003-10-26
I was attempting an upgrade on my IBM 386 Win v3.11 and I had another computer with it's parts laid out next to it when I stuck a wrong part in my computer. I shut down and removed the wrong piece but now nothing loads. I try pushing F8 but it does nothing. No DOS, no windows, a green monitor is all I see. I do hear the hardrive spinning initially so it is working, but its as if nothing is there. Please help, this is my kids computer and of course, there are irreplacable files on the hardrive. If all else fails, can I possibly make a slave drive from that hardrive in my Compaq Presario windows 98se to retrieve the lost files?
