Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop
My computer shut down on me and now it won't start up into windows. it just gives me options like press F1 to continue or F2 to go to the system setup. Please Help Me.
BIOS detects inconsistency that is why it gives you this options. Press F2 to enter setup and check your System date/time is correct. Make sure you have correctly configure your disks booting like Floppy might have been enabled for the first boot. You should change the first boot into HDD or CD

Press F1, when it boots you are going to have to go down to the date and time, and click on it then you will need to put in the correct day date and time. If pressing f2 it will take you into the bios, and you can set it from there prior to booting, unless you know what you are doing, stay away from the bios, it can really screw up your computer. Good luck and Peace,Gym
