Am a newbie in building the PC, couple of years back i have build a celeron PC and with that knowledge I helped my nephew upgrade his PC.
He had a 7 years old HP PC which had issues in frequent restarting, it was 512 mb intel pentium processor, i don't have the model name.
He had a gaming motherboard, AMD processor based, some nvidea stuff.
What we did is replaced the old motherboard with the new, eliminating the CDROM,floppy drive.
The system came up well with a alert on the first screen for setting up the system configuration, or F1 to continue and option for setting up the CMOS.
We pressed F1 to continue and we are doing it everytime we restart the PC.
Then I tried to connect to the internet, we have a DSL connected directly.
I was able to see 1394 connection in the network places, checked the device manager and i was able to see a yellow question for ehternet controller.
There were three cards that we installed, one has USB like connector, one has phone jack and i dont remeber the third one. Earlier the PC was connected to internet with the same internet connectivity.
I need help in fixing this,
1. startup screen F1 to continue,
2. Floppy drive disable - i dont want that to be showed
3. how do i connect to internet
