I am trying to reinstall Window XP on my Darius pc. I turned on the tower and inserted the cd into the CD/ROM. The screen of the the monitor becomes black with a message "press a key to reboot" and it just stays this way. I was told that my setting for the bios setup should be boot from cd. I did this, however, the message does not say "press a key to reboot from cd.

Could someone please help me with this problem? :confused:

Much appreciated!

Starjade, you should be able to hit a certain combination of keys, depending on your computer, of shift + tab or esc or control + delete or F8 or one of those and it will tell you on your screen VERY QUICKLY as you are rebooting to either get to the boot sequence or the CMOS settings. Once you get to the boot sequence you can set it to the correct one and go on. Or if you get to the CMOS settings, change it to the correct one and then go on. Liz
