I have 2 computers that open in BIOS only, I cannot get them to boot up to windows can you help PLEASE? Answered

The first one is a IBM 300GL 6287 97U Everytime I try to turn it on it boots to Bios only and will not go to windows. I set new administration password and a new power on password but it still will not boot up. I am at a lost with it. The second one is a Sony VIAO PCV-100 and it is doing the same thing. Does anyone out there have any idea on what I can do to fix them. I know they are both old machines but I would like to get them going and try to upgrade them when I get the money. The IBM was built in 1999 and I think the Sony was built around the same time. Can someone please help???

Floppy Disk Converter?

How does a Floppy Disk Converter work? Heres my problem. I have recently bought a laptop which has Windows Vista. I have an old desktop computer with Windows 98SE. I have no floppy disk drive on the laptop. I want to save the material on the floppy disks onto a USB memory stick. I bought a USB that works for Windows 98SE only to find that you need to download drivers for it from the Internet before it will work. So I plugged my Broadband connection (which is from Vodafone) into the desktop computer to get an Internet connection only to find that the Internet is too new a version for Windows 98SE to read so therefore I cant download the drivers. Also I thought I could save to CD and then put the CD into the laptop to save them to the hard disk but the desktop only has a CD-ROM whereas the laptop has CD-RW. So that wont work either. So I was wondering if a Floppy Disk Converter would be the answer to my problem. Like do you just insert a floppy and a USB into the Floppy Disk Converter and transfer the files. Do you need to connect it to a computer. Sorry for rambling on but I have so many questions about it and I really want to know before I go out and buy one only to find that it is also useless to me. Thanks

Efficiency of DIY bitcoin miners?

First, I would like to say that I do not know if this is the place for this question, but: I have just heard of bitcoin mining and started to look into it.  I have learned that pretty much the only way it is plausible is through the use of a machine dedicated to mining the bitcoins, not through using gpu's anymore apparently.  But I have seen that these machines are expensive, so naturally I would want to build a DIY one if I started this.  But are these dedicated miners even efficient? And what if they don't have the top of the line components?  I tried to look this up myself but I don't really understand the hash rates of these machines so I don't know what is considered an efficient rate.  And, in my current situation, I don't pay for electricity or internet so now would be an optimal time to do so and maximize profitability.  So, do these dedicated miners work efficiently enough to make it worth while to build/buy one? Especially if I don't pay for electricity or internet?

I am trying to build a Craftsman tool case portabale computer and I need to know how to figure what size PSU to use?

I am using a MU440EX Motherboard from year 2000. I know it is an old board but it has never been opened until today and I know that because I cut the factory seal on it. It says the Pentium 11 processor is supporting a host bus frequency of 66 MHz. The supported Pentium 11 processor have clock speeds of 233 MHz, 266 MHz, 300z, and 366MHz. Intel Celeron Processor supporting bus speed frequency of 66 MHz. The supported Celeron Processor has a clock speed of 266 MHz. As you might already know that it supports SDRAM DIMM * 168 Pin 3.3V DIMMs with gold plated contacts *  66MHz  4- clock unbuffered SDRAM *  non-ECC (64-BIT) memory *  Serial presence detect (SPD) or non-SPD memory *  8 MB, 16 MB, 32MB, 64MB, and 128 MB modules First question- I have a Pentium Processor so will it work without being a Pentium 11 ? I do have a 233 MHz and a 266MHz and I think I have a 300MHz INTEL Pentium 11 Processors so can I put any one of the in it and then set the BIOS for the speed Processor? Would any of them work as long as the BIOS are set to the correct one? Second question is how do I know what WATTAGE of PSU should I use with this system? I have a 230W system with a on/off switch already hooked in to it from the factory that I am thinking of using but I do have a big supply of all different wattage boxes that I can use if it will not hurt it. I don't know how high I can take it. I am getting pic's so I can try and make an Instructable for the first time to when it is done so I can see what all of you think about it. I might be replying back again later when I get to the BIOS part unless I get it done on my own. Cross your fingers for me I will need all the luck I can get being my first time and all. Please answer back with the cold hearted truth so if I do make a mistake that will be the only way I will know it. Thanks to you all GREETINGS TO ALL YOUR HOLADAYS

How do I hook up a USB video cam in my truck? Answered

I have a IBM ThinkPad Ultra Port 2 Cam 2 "02K5152" That I want to hook up in my truck but my problem is getting the right power to and at the same time record straight into a video camera so I can keep a live feed going when I need it to. I guess it would be a lot like in a cop car where I can turn it on and off with a switch. I was thinking about getting a USB hub but I still need a way to get the power to it. Is there anyone who could draw up a scamatic so a novice can read it please. It would be of great great help to me to get this going. I have a lot of xtra USB ports from old pc's that I thought about putting together a USB hub my self but I don't know  where and what resisters to use because I havent gotten up to speed on them as fast as I wanted to so im still in the R&R; stage area on that. I took some pic's of the cam so you can see it and im wanting to put it in a 1995 Chevy truck. Also it will need to be removeable quick and easy because of the cold temps of winter and thiefs if you know what I mean. Thanks for any help in advance. I really love this site. D
