Is there any reason why you're trying to go into the BIOS (setup)?

I have the same computer with the same exact problem. What were you doing right before you shut the computer down? Did you have any peripherals connected? I was trying to sync up some music to my phone, but it wouldn't connect so I decided to restart my computer. That is when it stopped working. Any help would be much appreciated. I still have it under warranty so, if I can't problem solve it myself, once I get it repaired I will be sure to report back.

it was under warranty luckily at less than a year old, I think it needed a new motherboard, but honestly it has been so long I can't completely remember. must be a crappy model because we had only used the computer a handful of times! but I know the warranty saved us hundreds of $$s. Good luck!

actually u didn't save anything whenever you phone is hooked up to the computer on reboot the computer recognize the phone as a hard drive and get hunged up searching for boot files if you unplug ur phone or any type of media dive the computer will start rite up....
