trying to set up a compaq presario 2100 for card games
hi all, I have an old compaq presario 2100 (amd athlon) laptop that came with windows xp. it can't deal with xp any more so i put mandriva on it and let my mother in law use it for card games. now it won't even boot mandriva.
it says something about a 1720 SMART error. i ran the hdd test and it gave me a code: 1# imminent failure.
it will run mandriva off the install disk but I want to make this as easy as possible for my mother in law to play her games. I don't think she'd like to deal with all the steps involved with running it off the install disk. the problem with that is that the install wizard runs every time i turn it on.
so finally, my question, will i be able to do something to the effect that my mother in law will be able to easily boot up and play her card games on the laptop?
