Press F2 then see if there is a SAVE SETTINGS OPTION.
Be aware that this can happen when some CMOS BATTERIES get old. But let's try simple. Sorry if I don't write a long explainer.
PC is Dell Dim 8400, Win XP Pro.
I had to do a clean install to my machine using the XP disk that came with it. Everything works fine except each time I do a power up or a restart, the bootup sequence stops and displays the message "Strike the F1 key to continue, F2 to run the setup utility". Everything stops until I hit one of the keys. One would think the after a few seconds the boot sequence would continue, but it doesn't.
This never happened before I did the re-install. Is there a way to fix this?
Thanks for your help.
