Real Noobie question, sorry

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
PC was working fine up to a short while ago but now I always get bios errors from a cold boot.



The only way to get passed this screen is to give it the three finger salute.

No matter what bios boot setting I try the result is the same.





So to the question.

Anyone know the correct boot sequence?

I know the other option is to flash the bios but don't really want to do that (again).

Thanks in anticipation,

Mike

It could be a faulty HDD if it's not picking it up correctly. But if you say that it does the same thing no matter what option you choose, that seems a little strange. I have never seen that before.

Be sure to check connections too. I believe I had a similar issue with my SSD and the connector was a little loose.

you don't have any USB drives plugged in when you boot do you?
