The hard drive or the CD/DVD ? I think you need to enter the BIOS screens (probably press Del key as computer starts). Once in the BIOS see if it detects the hard drive or CD/DVD. Go to Boot Order and select CD/DVD or hard drive as first in boot order -- depending on what the problem is. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
