Hi,

Boot Failure System Halt message appears at boot up but when I press Ctrl-Alt-Del after that it boots up fine.  It only happens when I press the on/off button on the tower case where this error message appears.  Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Wendy

Hi,

Thanks, I checked the BIOS setting.
The problem was actually the harddrive jumper was set incorrectly.  From the BIOS setting I see that harddrive was set to be the primary IDE slave which is incorrect.   After changing the jumper, I've shutdown and rebooted the computer several time.. it works fine now!
