So, this brings me to my first problem. Windows runs fine with the dvd in the computer, even if I take it out it continues to run. BUT if I take it out and leave it out after restarting/shutting down my computer it gives me a message (while booting) that there is no operating system detected and I should press F1 to restart the boot process. If I just leave it stand it just continuously boots over and over again (ending at the message each time) until I put the DVD back in.
That's it for my first problem, but here is my second. My computer will NOT stay shut down. No matter what I do; press shut down on the start menu, turn it off with the power button or take the power cord out and then put it back in it still refuses to stay off. I does shut down though, for about 5 seconds then it starts back up again.
I have tried reinstalling windows twice and messing with things in BIOS (which I know almost nothing about so anything regarding it will have to be explained) and nothing seems to work.
So, if there is anything you can do to help, or you have any ideas, please lay them on me as I am getting quite frustrated.
Thank you in advance for all your help, and if I did anything wrong I am sorry as I am new here. =D
