Hello there,
300 worms here from good old Blighty.
Got a bit of a problem with the ruddy PC. It's a recently installed AMD 1Ghz Thunderbird on a Gigabyte GA-7ZX MB. Everthing was working spiffingly until a couple of nights ago. Just finished my Sherry and settled down in front of the PC. Switched her on, engines fired up... but nothing. No boot. I attempted a restart. No. I had a heart to... well whatever beats inside her and tried again, nothing. To be quite honest with you, I'm beat. If anybody out there has met one of these beasts you'll know theres no jumper for flashing her bios. Has any of you chaps any suggestions, I'd be awfully greatful.


300 Worms (Code name. Can't be to careful.)
Hey 300Worms...

did you try (i guess you did but just in case!) to take the battery off for few minutes? Doh! I knew you did!

Sometimes, simple things dont comes to mind!

Good luck!
Do you know what old boy, I did. And guess what, nothing bloody well happend.

I've spoken to a nice chap at my local computer hardware suppliers, where I bought the rascal. They're going to look at her.

Thanks anyway and tally-ho!
