About 5 minutes after the second screen above it says:
Strike F1 to retry boot, F2 for setup utility
What I did 1- I upgraded the BOIS from A04 to A07 2- I could not find an option for BOIS default setup 3- I removed the motherboard battery for about half an hour 4- I removed one of the RAM stick 5- I can access CMOS by pressing F2 6- I tried to eliminate the possibility of a hardware that caused the problem I removed CD rom drive and floppy drive but no luck. What other troubleshoot steps should I consider ? Thanks
