My computer won't start window 7 Tags: New Build Computer Boot Systems Last response: June 24, 2012 10:31 AM in Systems Share camondrums June 24, 2012 2:55:36 AM My computer has the "reboot or select proper boot device... press a key" when i press a key it just gives me the same message. I went into my bios and changed my optical drive to the boot drive. I have checked for any RAID setting there is nothing. I have done research and still don't know what to do. Suggestions and help is greatly appreciated!
