Question about Computers & Internet
There is a setting in the BIOS that allows you to change the boot order for devices, yours is set to Hard Drive and needs to be changed to CD-ROM.
If you are using Vista, it has a built in MemTest...although it is not as comprehensive as a program like Memtest86.
Some BIOS also have a key to hit during bootup that temp changes the device it boots from, for my last motherboard it was the ESC key and it pop up a little dialog box for me to choose.the device.
If it is changed via the BIOS, it will stay that way until you go back in a change the option back to your hard drive. But if you do not have a CD in your DVD/CD-ROM drive, it will automatically go to the next device in the list (which should be your hard drive) and start up normally.
Hope this helps you out.
