i have an old dell dimension 4550 that i was trying to use again.
at first, it went to the BIOS and it said hard drives are unknown. so i tried to fix it and there was this one option, which i forget. that gave option of putting it in 'quiet', 'performance', and something else. it was on quiet b4 and i changed it to something else. now bios wont load.
how can i fix this??

Try doing a CMOS reset > Unplug the power remove the coin cell battery from the motherboard press and hold the power button several times replace the battery replug and see if it will boot.

And check the Diag Lights> https://support.dell.com/support/edoc...ed.htm#1118998
