I built a computer some time back and it has worked perfectly since. It has suddenly developed an odd problem that I thought some of you might be able to identify and help me correct.
When I turn it on it won't automatically start the Windows 7 Professional Operating System as it should. There have been no changes that I can identify. It now shows a screen that states the following:
Please Select Boot Device:
P3 ATAPI iHAS124 ( I believe that is my CD ROM)
P4 M4-CT128M4SSD2 (This is my Solid State drive 128 gig)
P5 Samsung HD103SJ (This is my 1 Tb HDD)
When I hit enter it will go ahead and boot up but I know this is not normal. I have a ASUS P8Z68-V LX Motherboard. Intel i5 3300mhz chip and 16 Gb Ram.
When I go into the BIOS and look at boot priorities, no matter which way I switch them around, it continues to do the same thing. I place the P4 at option #1 and save on exit, but it always comes back with the same screen. It appears that it is wanting to boot from the CD Rom (my unlearned opinion). I do not know why this has started to happen out of the blue.
Any thoughts on this situation?
Thanks for your advice and comments.
