    Hi,

    Just recently when I boot up the PC there is a "setup" message displayed in the middle of the screen. I'm unable to remove this for some reason and hoping you guys may take a look at it. I haven't seen this before and has just appeared.
    Here are some details below:

    Main headings on message:
    AVAILABLE SWITCHES
    SETUP MODES
    RESTART OPTIONS
    SPECIAL OPTIONS

    Cheers
    Jason

    Hi,

    I have an annoying windows message "Setup" appear everytime my PC is turned on and I'm unsure of how to disable this. Any ideas of how to stop this will be greatly appreciated.

    Please check my attachment which shows a screen dump of the message being displayed.



    Thanks
    Jason.
