Hi, My pc has been working well, but now it is like starting a car on a cold morning, it takes several attempts to get thro the bios check, each time a step nearer, it favours stopping when You get the 75 in the bottom right hand corner. After about 5 repower button presses I get to windows where it hangs at the start up screen, when I restart, I go to known settings that worked, the same happens, possibly 2/3 attempts later it works, altho I notice the DVD does not work, or show up in the My Computer..help please!! Once on all is ok and there is no virus. Thanks

124...did as you said and it worked..many thanks. With the side off I also disconnected the dvd drive, restarted, then reconnected..restarted and all is well and hey presto Dvd drive back as well. Be intersting to know the logic of all this..but the main thing is...all working!!..thanks again.
