Everytime I turn on my computer I get this message. "Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in select boot device and press a key". I press the reset button then it reboots fine everytime. So bassically it always works on the 2nd reset. I have my boot sequence to look in my HD first, then my 2 dvd drives. Im not sure whats causing this so any help would be great. Thanks

Try replacing the CMOS battery (silver, size of a quarter). I think it's CR2032.

HI, IM HAVING THE SAME MESSAGE:REBOOT AND SELECT PROPER BOOT DEVICE. THE ONLY THING I HIT RESTART AND IT DOES NOT BOOT AGAIN JUST THE SAME MESSAGE OVER AND OVER.I CANT GET TO THE BIOS MENU IT ONLY ASKS FOR A PASSWORD. TRIED RESTARTING AND HITTING F1 OR DELETE OR F10 TO BRING UP THE BIOS MENU AND NOTHING. WHWERE I ONLY CAN GET IS TO THE MENU AND IN ADVANCE SETTINGS I THINK IT IS I SEE THAT THE IDE IS NOT DETECTED. I RECENTLY TOOK IT FOR A REPAIR BUT THE GUARANTEE HAS EXPIRED SO I GUESS I CANT COUNT ON THAT. ANY HELP WILL BE APRRECIATED. BY THE WAY THIS IS A WIN XP OS.
