Cant get into BIOS after post - stuck on Press delete to enter setup - Windows wont load
Posted on 2007-12-03
My computer has been running great for the past 9 months. I had one PSU go out a few months back and replaced it with another of the same model so I wonder if that is the problem again, but I am getting very different symptoms this time.
I have a custom built computer with the following:
Motherboard: Biostar 965PT
Processor: Intel E6400
Power Supply: Ultra V Series 500 Wt
Running: 3 hard drives and 2 DVD burners.
Video Card: GS7600 256 MB
Today I shut my comptuer down to restart it (internet connection died) and when I restarted it became stuck on the Biostar green screen that says "press del to enter setup). This is after I get the beep for a successful post. I have a PS2 mouse and plugged that in and pressing it did nothing. I let my computer sit for about 5 minutes and then it made a little beep and went into Bios. I leave bios and it goes back to the Green screen (repeat, etc).
What I have tried:
1. Resetting the CMOS jumper. I dont think my board has a battery does it?
2. Unplugging all HDs other than the one I need. I also unplugged one DVD Rom.
3. Update: I just got rid of the splash screen and now says:
Main processor: Intel 2.13 (Etc)
memory...and it sticks there..
When I let it run it comes out to this:
Memorty Testing: 3144704K OK + !M TSEG Memory
CPU Brand Name: Intel Core 2 CPU
Memory Freq for DDR800 Dual channel mode
IDE Channel 0 Master: None
IDE Channel - Slave: None
SATA 1 Device: ST3250620AS 3. AAE SATA
SATA 2-6: NONE
Floppy disk fail (40)
Press F8 to ENable System configuration
Press F9 to Selection Booting Device After Post
Press F! to continue, Del to enter setup
I tried resetting my ram and doing the CMOS reset again and that doesnt help
Thats it for now. Im stuck.
UPDATE 2: Okay, I let it sit for an hour and now it is booting again. I have taken all the info off it I need. Any ideas WHY This happened and how to not have it happen again? Have I overloaded the PSU with all the stuff I have on it?
