Hi Guys,
does anyone know why a pc would ask me to click F1 to continue or click Del to finish. When I do Click F1 it goes on to bootup ok. I just wondered if there were a reason for this.

I have win xp home.
2 HDs. Not sure if you require any more info, but let me know if you do.

Cheers

Hi Dsenette,
thanks for getting to me so quickly. I done a check on my cables and I found the Floppy drive cable had come out of its socket slightly. I believe this was the cause of the problem. It has booted up ok since I fixed that.

Thanks once again Mate.
