I haven't used my pc for a little while and now that I want to back my files up it shows that message.

I went into the BIOS features and changed what i thought need to be changed. I inserted a disk and pressed any key like the computer said and nothing happened. Am I doing something wrong please help

My PC is an LG and its not an option on the sub category.

What did you change, and what disk did you insert? It's not just asking for any disk, that message means it either can't find the hard-drive, the hard-drive is not in the boot order, or the files on the hard-drive are messed up. To boot from a disk it needs to be a bootable disk.

Go back to the BIOS and make sure the hard-drive is seen and is listed in the boot order. You may want to place it as the first device.

Try loading setup defaults from BIOS settings and check
