Question about Computers & Internet
I rescently got a computer and it seems that every 2 out of 3 times that I start my computer it freezes on the opening screen that's blue and displays the motherboard's name with an "F? for setup" in the lower right corner of the screen, but sometimes it powers up just fine.... and I know it's not a problem of it just taking a long time to run, I found someone with that problem... I left it on all night last night and when I woke up... still on the blue screen. Any help'd be appreciated :)
The mother board is an 'ASUS P4VP-mx'
Hi, It is possible that the CD ROM Drive is failing when the system hangs at this screen. You could disconnect the drive and see if it powers up all the time without fail. Also check all other IDE cable connections from the motherboard to the hard drive and any other drives as there may be a loose one etc.
Make sure you will not be voiding any warranty you may have with the machine before you do this.
Please ask if you need any help with this, and let me know how you go.
