Okay so last night I realised why my monitor doesnt turn on after a reboot or even after a shutdown (I have to wait fifteen or so minutes each time I turn the bastard off). The keyboard doesn't flash, which I only noticed last night. Which means POST isn't running and it isn't checking the keyboard or the video. I thought POST was automatic...what does this mean and is there any way to fix it? This site says its a power supply problem: will a new power supply fix it? Or should I just get a new PC? Power On Self Test And while I'm here: I've been messing around with partitions and my main hard drive (about 75GB) has become Inactive OS/2...how do I make it bootable/visible? I have a 1GB partiton that has become RAW (I was on it last night on XP but couldn't see the other partition). I assume I can format the RAW drive in the recovery console? I hope I can And thats about it. I did read something about ptedit being able to recover OS/2 Boot drives. But my main concern is this POST not running...I'm really getting pissed off with it now. There's a lot of restarting involved when formatting and creating partitions. And having to wait 15-20 minutes to reboot each time is annoying. Thanks.
