I just got an old junker comp and when I try to go into bios it shows a picture of an hourglass, then the screen goes black and orange lines flicker across the screen. The system is an "HTC Pentium Workstation" with a 75 MHZ Pentium proc., 813 MB HD, 32 megs of RAM, 8x CDROM, etc. Please help me if you know what is wrong. Thanks.

Are you using an LCD? Some LCD's will not display some BIOS'... Apparently the resolution/frequency of certain PC's when entering the BIOS is an "unsupported mode". Hook up a CRT to it and try it then. Otherwise, if anyone else has any ideas...
