I updated the Bios of my 3yr old HP a545c with A7V8X-LA motherboard. It had version 3.03 in it, and I updated to the 3.15 on HP site. Now, anytime I reboot, the screen below says there, unless I hit F2. This is driving me nuts!

See here:

I frequently reboot and leave the room, but now the computer stays on this screen after I reboot, and I have to keep hitting F2. I did disable the boot screen in bios, but this still happens.

Please help.

I notice the message "floppy disk fail" which may be triggering the default to BIOS. Make sure the floppy is connected correctly, or if you don't have a floppy you may have to change your boot settings to disable the floppy, and any other changes related to the floppy. After the BIOS upgrade it probably reverted to the default settings which may need to be changed.

A word of advice for the future. never update a computer's BIOS just because an update is available. Only do so if you know the update will solve a specific problem you're having or will provide some extra settings which you need. If the existing BIOS does everything you need it to do, leave it well alone.
