I'm trying to fix my friends computer. I believe it has the M863G motherboard . Here's a link http://pcchipsusa.com/prod-m863gv51a.asp
But here's the problem: I put in a bootable DVD in the drive and the screen comes up "to boot from CD press any key" i smash all the buttons in plenty of time yet it acts as if i didn't after the ....'s it says an error about operating system not found!
I have tried a number of things- I made sure the operating system disc worked in my computer,tried a different DVD drive,reset the bios, made sure it is booting from DVD drive in the bios(which it is obviously because of the prompt to "press any key") formatted the hard drive with ERD commander, tried a different hard drive, The keyboard is working fine in the bios (it's a USB keyboard) So anyone have any ideas?
