It seems that I have to wait a long period of time before my OS will boot. Normally it would take only 10-15 seconds for the the BIOS Splash screen to disappear, but now it takes a very long period of time. Also as I hit F12 during the BIOS splash screen, it takes a long time to give me the booting options. Any suggestions as to why this is happening?
[Still require help on, thank you]
Also before my laptop failed, I wanted to format it but I don't how I could. I don't have a optical drive installed, however I do have a external optical drive. But then I think the BIOS does not support booting from an external device through USB. My tablet's using Phoenix bios v1.03. Does anyone know if I can boot from my external cd rom drive? I tried it and it's a no go; it just kept booting to XP.
I googled some solutions, but the people with the similar problem I have all have the "safe mode" screen option.
Thanks in advanced.
