Question about Computers & Internet
Posted by Anonymous on
I'm not an expert, but try getting into the BIOS when booting up (sounds like F2 on yours) and look for where you can specify the BOOT ORDER. It is usually First Device - Floppy, Second Device - HDD (Hard Disk Drive) and maybe no third device if not CD-ROM, etc. My desktop is currently CD-ROM first and HDD second. As long as I don't leave a cd or dvd in a drive, no worries. I am not even sure that a music cd or a movie dvd would hurt anything - it might skip the CD-ROM at theat point and still boot from the HDD as it should. Thinking some more, your BIOS might be corrupted and need to be reflashed if possible; or maybe your CMOS battery is weak or dead. Looks like a watch "coin" type battery on the motherboard (at least in a desktop pc).
