I have a eMachines eTower 633ids. No matter what I try to do like config the Boot priority it just won't boot from it. But the strange thing is that I HAVE booted from the computer before so I know it is capable.

When you change the boot order in the BIOS, are you saving the changes when exiting? Are you ssure the drive works?

How about telling us...exactly what you do when you try to reset the boot priorities?

What do you set as the 1st, 2d, and 3d priorities...before saving the changed settings?

What happens when you press F10 as soon as the eMachines logo shows up? (that's the boot options selection for eMachines in most cases)
