Is that all it says? Just press f1?

Please post the whole message, because what comes before press f1 is the problem you have.

*usually* (but not in all cases) indicative of a device not connected properly. eg >>> PATA/SATA cables not seated firmly into their respective motherboard/device connectors. but highly likely >>> power leads from the PSU (4pin Molex connector) not seated properly into their respective device connectors.

4Pin Molex connector:


shut down PC, remove the power lead from the wall, remove the PC's sidecovers, remove and replace each PATA/SATA data cable.........making sure that they are correctly seated into the device (HDDs, Optical Drives & Floppy Drive if you have one) and into the motherboard. Do the same with the power leads into the rear of each device.

verify OK. sidecovers on. reattach wall Power Lead. Boot up.

see how you go......

:cool:
