After the Dell Screen comes up I get the following message:
SATA Primary drive 0 not found
SAA Secondary drive 0 not found
Type the password and ....
-- press <enter> to leave password security enabled.
--press <CTRL><ENTER> to disable password security
Pressing enter or ctrl-enter doesn't do anything; I just get the message that too many attempts have been made and it will shut down but no shut down happens. I don't recall setting up a password.
Pressing F2, F8 and F12 doesn't work and just brings me to the same message. I have tried to make sure the connections to the motherboard are pushed in all the way and that didn't seem to work either.
Before this happened, I could boot to safe mode or get to the actual windows desktop but then I would be prompted to put in a password. This change is new but I am ultimately concerned that this is all related to spyware.
