Thanks for Your Reply grumpy,
But it didn't work ?........ Or I haven't hit the button at the right time ?
I hope I don't make you Grumpy by asking this but When 'exactly do I hit the F8 Button,
I have tried Hitting F8 just after I hit the start button, before I hit the start button,holding Down the F8 Button Kept hitting down the F8 button, I am unsure Exactly when do I hit the F8 button and by hitting the F8 should that delete the Hibination data Automatically?
And do I keep tapping the F8 or just hit it once and when.........before I hit the start button or just after ?
I Do appreciate and respect Your Help and advise and I don't mean to be a pain in the butt!
But it has me Baffled, I thought it sounded Too easy, it probably IS but I still cant get the machine to boot
if I aren't being too much of a pain,
Would you please answer me again,
P.S. I Think I may be sending this message twice Again, please advise me if I am and why is that happening?
I feel like a silly person if this goes out twice Again !
Turn off your computer. When you power it on you'll see the BIOS splash screen, start tapping the F8 key.
I 'Really appreciate' Your Help but This still isn't working ?
When I used to need Bios I just kept tapping enter ,
Now that isn't working either ?.
Do You think I may have 'Blown the H/D or what ?
as I cant even seem to get into bios by hitting Alt + F4 or Tapping enter
As I said I do appreciate Your advise But 'Nothing Seems to be working either 'as usual the message.. re press del to enter set up or Alt+F2 to enter Flash Utility comes up then I keep tapping F8, I have tried both those also but To No Avail
When does the BIOS splash screen come up, What does it look like ?
I just keep getting hit F2 to enter or hit del to enter set up
So I have tried them both+ What You Have advised 's of Course,
Mate I am just 'trying to get this computer working ?
If I put a new H/Drive into the computer would 'That 'Maybe work or will it still remain to have a Fault even after Putting a new h/d into the computer
P.S. they recon where the is a will there is a Way but I Just cant seem to get this to Boot,Even after All the advise you have given me ?
