Meaning of this codes



When I start the computer, the folow codes I see:
AMIBIO © 2003 American Megatrends, Inc.
P4VM8 BIOS P1.10
CPU : Intel ® Celeron® CPU 2.40 GHz
Speed : 2.40 GHz

Press F2 to run Setup
Press F11 for Boot Menu

sorry for my bad enlish but I get this codes when I start the computer. I have Windows XP and when I press on F2 or F11 ther computer is doing nothing. (F2 says: Entering Setup and F11 says: Boot selections Popup menu has been selected) and then nothing

what do I have to do? :confused:


You have to select the correct boot device in the BIOS to be able to boot up.

What is the real problem?
Does the computer not boot up or???


When I press F11 he is doingn noting. I don’t know howe to select te correct boot device in the BIOS.

what is boot up?


When i get to this screen everything stops. There is no way to select the correct boot device because the screen freezes. How do I get beyond this point?:confused:


Welcome to the forum, djonesey :slight_smile:

Ahh what an old thread :doh:

Do you hear any sound coming from your boot HDD? If you hear a clicking sound comming from your computer then the HDD is dead.
