Press DEL to run Setup, Press TAB to display BIOS POST Message

I have an Alienware computer that gives me the above message when I try to start up. I tried (1) unplugging, removing the CMOS battery for 10 minutes, re-inserting, and restarting and (2) resetting to factory defaults via the BIOS. No joy for either. But I am now also getting two new error messages (a) "no physical disk, no virtual disk" and (b) overclocking.
Any suggestions as to what to do next greatly appreciated.

  1. Sounds like your motherboard is diying...
    "no physical and virtual disk" probably means your sata controller is glitching up or diying...this all seems wierd...This might fix it...try updating the bios, then reset to factory defaults, save and exit. And check if your hard drives are plugged in correctly...
