When you get into the BIOS most of them will have a back to default setting or optimize settings that you can choose. I just can't remember which choice you can find it in, can't get into my BIOS, at work..... :thumbsup:

Most likely there's an error mentioned just before the "Press F1 to continue" prompt. That error message is needed to help decide what actions to take to fix it.

The only error I see says " Floppy Disk(s) Fail (40)." Is this the problem?

Yes, that's the most likely cause of it. To fix the error, you'll either have to fix the floppy drive failure or turn off the floppy drive stuff in the BIOS.

OK, what's the make and model of your system? Also, when it boots, let us know the name of the BIOS (AMI, American Megatrends, Phoenix, etc) and we "may" be able to find some of the settings for you (BIOS screens don't seem to be well represented on the web).

While you're waiting, look around inside the BIOS, and disable anything to do with the Floppy. Check all the screens that are in the BIOS. If, by chance, you hose the BIOS and the system won't boot - unplug the system from the wall, remove the CMOS batter (usually a round shiny thing the size of a nickel, and wait 30 minutes. Then put the battery back in, plug the computer in and the BIOS should have returned to default values.

It says "Phoenix V6 00PG, an energy star ally.
My PC is a Shuttle with XP Pro. If that is what you were asking. Inside the BIOS it is a foreign language to me. Obviously am not computer literate.
It would scare me to death to remove anything. If the fix is complicated will have to take to the workshop OR live with pressing F1 every boot.
Did a search on BIOS setting and came up with nothing. Thanks again

Almost there - which of these 2 pages most closely represents what you see when you enter the BIOS:

Thank you for trying to help. It was easier to disable the Boot Floppy in BIOS which got rid of the F1 instruction. Thanks again
