I run windows XP. recently when trying to boot up the computer stops at PL-ROM-FFC:1. (There might be another letter before the PL, as I have a 18" monitor and the first letter may not be showing) This is after Analyzing network Media type, this will take several seconds. OK
Also before that is displayed there are several other PL-ROM settings.
PL-ROM-ADR: 0050 BAE7 BAA9
Then the PL-ROM-FFC: 1
There is a flashing cursor after the 1 but I can't get it to go anywhere. I have to reboot in order to get out of the screen.
I do not recall installing any new software or down loads. I did get rid of some software that I was not using. I think I might have the original XP operating program disk, if I have to reinstall. I would hate to lose everything since I am not a computer person and would not know how to install any of my internet stuff or other software programs like Nero or photo shop.
Do you think my hard drive is finally taking a dump? Since ROM stands for Read only memory.
