Try replacing the battery on the motherboard.

Well the good news is, I got my computer frankensteined back to life. which means i can get EQ up and running. bad news is, my 1T hard drive is not being recognized by my computer, which has all my good stuff on it, like 70gig of music.

and yes, goofy, i did do that and it worked

Grats to Goofy & Korokx on the computer fix. As long as EQ is up and running -- the rest is trivial!! ~~

Good to hear you got the PC up intime to hear Sony gave out our personal information and locked us out of the game.

they did not give out our information, and they've locked there whole system up because of an attack by a bunch of or a single idiot hacker. Now they're probably having to do a incredible amount of work to secure the system so that it hopefully is secure.. well until the next generation of computer idiot/genius's decide to try something new. You do know that the attack was spurred by the fact that sony is fighting, basically with those that want to be able to mod the playstation's so they can use illegal software

Unplug the hard drive from the computer and any power cords and mark sure the drive selection pin on the back is correct. May do that to all drives. Then reattach the drives and turn the computer on. Might wanna check your BIOS, also. When the battery goes bad, the BIOS can get reset. If you had a special drive set-up, you need to reconfigure it.

You may just need to hit the "Reset all option" or something like that, in the BIOS, to factory settings as it may have been corrupted.
