I'm running Windows 7 on a DELL XPS.
Before this happened a disk scan was running and I reset the computer before it was finished. It restarted the first time, but by the time I got back to the computer it was on the "Strike f1 to retry boot" screen.
I've tried turning on CAPS LOCK, NUM LOCK & SCROLL LOCK and hitting ALT -E,F,B, but that did not seem to work. I don't know if I did the combination work or something, but I tried a variety of combos and none of them seemed to work.
I also tried reloading the default settings in the Boot options menu and that did not seem to help either. I've read resetting the BIOS is a possible solution, but I'm not sure what the next step is at this point.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
* UPDATE: I just ran a diagnostics test and it said Error Code 0141 - No Drive Detected
