  1. Is the hard drive in the correct boot sequence?
  2. for some reason no it wasnt i dont know why but it is now and every thing is fine thank you
  3. If the system is a few years old, the battery might need to be replaced. The usual symptom is BIOS settings that are lost after a power failure or when the system is disconnected from the power outlet.
