Such should not happen on a new machine. Call it in ASAP.
I recently bought a new Asus laptop;
ASUS A8 Series A8JS-4S024P NoteBook
...and when I boot it up, every once in a while, I'll get an error message telling me the boot device can't be found. Within the reviews for the product somebody mentioned, "BIOS set to boot hard disk instead of CDROM first, need to manual reset it." What does this mean and how do I do it so that my machine boots to Windows and doesn't hang. Currently, whenever I run into this problem, I've been cold booting the laptop and the second time it boots fine but I'd really rather correct the problem because I've been told cold booting computers is bad for them.
Thank you for your time and knowledge,
