Boot Up problem

  Voy06 22:15 01 Feb 2006

Upon boot-up I recieving the following message 'Select first boot device' then it gives me the option to boot via the different drives I have (Floppy, DVD-RW, DVD-Rom) it also gives me the option to cancel by pressing 'ESC'. Upon pressing ECS it boots up into windows as per normal.

This message appears in a blue box in the centre of the screen with the rest of the screen the black colour. The message appears just after you see all the info regarding your computer on boot-up.

I have checked device manager and there is no yellow exclamation marks next to any of the hardware. I have ran Norton Disk Doctor which is reporting no problems.

Just recently I have added another case fan connecting it to the power supply directly using the 3-4 pin adaptor. Now I did get this message on the odd ocassion before installing the case fan but it has appeared more often after i've installed the case fan, Conicedence?

Does anyone know why this is happening.

It's possibly a setting in the BIOS that allows you to interactively choose which device you want to boot from at BOOT time as opposed to trying each BOOT device in turn until it finds a device it can boot from, if so you can most likely disable it so that your computer boots normally.

Then again, I may be totally wrong.

Enter Bios by pressing either Delete or F2 keys whilst booting (depends on mobo which one but commonly Delete) Look under Advanced or Boot tab for Boot Sequence set First Boot Device to Floppy. Second to HDD. Third to CDROM press Esc then F10 and save settings. Computer will reboot and hopefully your problem will be sorted.
