Hi

I've unearthed a long-forgotten Toshiba T2110CS laptop and, although it worked last time out, I'm getting an error when I power it up:

>>Disk I/O error, replace disk and then press any key

When I first started the machine I had a couple of messages saying

>>Error in CMOS, bad battery

>>Error in CMOS, bac checksum

>>Check system, then press F1 key.

I pressed F1 and it all looked OK, though the battery level was dodgy. Upon exiting out I got a single beep and then the Disk I/O error message (twice)

The Bios is 5.10 but no other details.

Any ideas?

Thanks for your help

If the CMOS battery is flat and the BIOS is defaulting, it may be that the disk isn't being detected properly in the BIOS. Do not attempt to use that disk until you are sure it is being detected properly or you will corrupt it.
