    I apologize in advance if this question is out there and has been answered and I just missed it somehow. I viewed link after link and link of the particular issue I'm having, but found no assistance. Please, I need help. :(

    I was setting up a router so that my friend could be wireless. He got a new laptop so I figured I'd help him out. I've done it before and didn't think this would be an issue like it has turned out to be. Here is where my problem lies:

    I have disconnected things (stupid IDIOT, I shouldn't have) and now the computer says, "Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device." (There are legitimate reasons as to why I even opened the case, just in case you're wondering what the heck I needed to do that for. I promise! Haha!)

    I don't know if I just don't have the ribbons connected correctly or what. I DID disconnect the floppy drive because I think it's absolutely unnecessary. I went into the bios setup utility under "Boot" and then under "Boot Deivice Priority" and I disabled the floppy drive and hit F10 to save and exit. But nothing worked. I still get this same error.

    Can anyone please, PLEASE help me? I feel absolutely horrible that my friends computer isn't working now. All I actually wanted to do was help him! Ha!
