Many thanks for the prompt reply. As you expected your first suggestion did not work. I still get the same message and when I "press any key" I get a repeat of the message.
I guess about 3 years
No extended warranty
Nothing has been replaced since I purchased it.
None of the F keys F1 to F12 refer to BIOS or CMOS. There is nothing on the screen referring to BIOS or CMOS.
There are no F key options either on the screen or the key board other than the F keys themselves. The F Keys themselves have various pictures on them eg a screen a hard disk etc.
No F key options show on the screen during start up.
It shows No key options on the screen any time during start up.
Hello my name is ***** ***** certified computer professional with over 10 years experience. I will be happy to help you.I am sorry to hear about your problem.Seems clear to me you could have a couple different issues and all hard ware related.The most obvious would be that your hard drive is failed. This is why whne you boot it does not find any system disk. I am assuming your computer doesn't have a floppy drive but if for some reason it does then remove any disks in teh drive or CDs and USBs for that matter.If you receive the same message after removing any external drive or storage than you most likely have a failed hard drive. The other thing could be that the hard drive is not connected for some reason inside, that could also cause this.Lastly it could be that you have a failed motherboard.If you do not have at least an A+ certification in computer repair I do not advise you attempt to repair this on your own. You most likely wouldn't have the needed tools anyway if you do not have that certification.Take it to a local repair shop for proper diagnosis and repair. Even if the hard drive died it still may be possible for them to recover your data for you so you do not lose everything.If you have a moment please rate my service by clicking on one of the faces below, positive ratings are appreciated and are what credit me for my time and experience.Thank you,Chris
