I'm not sure what happened, but my wife's PC running XP recently had a massive crash and I think the BIOS needs reset. My question is if I reset it to factory default will I loose anything in the way of applications, hardware drivers, etc. This PC is so old, I don't have a lot of the original disks to reload everything and I'm about ready to put a 45 through it mainly because I'm tired of hearing her whining and moaning. She uses it mainly for e-mail, word processing and silly games. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also, is there anything I should know if I go into safe mode on startup? -=BDD=- Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
