I receive the following message when I boot up:

Does the computer boot fine if you press F1?

Broadcom is a large manufacturer of ethernet adapter chipsets, commonly used
in PCs by Dell and other manufacturers.

It looks like your PC is set to try to boot from the network before booting
from the hard disk. You can change this by entering the setup when your PC
turns on (there should be some sort of notification onscreen to press F12 or
something to enter Setup).

Thanks for your reply Joe. It does boot up fine when I install Norton Ghost
10.0 emergency boot disk. I have never been prompted to press F12 but I have
gone to the setup screen. Next time I boot and still have the same issue I
will go to the setup instead to see if I am booting from the network.

Is there anything I can do once I'm up and connected?

Thanks and Regards,

Andy

Not that I'm aware of, though that would depend on your motherboard. I've
never seen an application to modify the boot settings in the BIOS from
within Windows, however I've never looked for one either. :)

Hi Andy,

*If* your BIOS settings are changing by themselves, it's time to replace the
battery on the motherboard.

Curt,

Thanks for your reply. Is that something I can replace? I have a Dell
Dimension 2350 using XP.

Curt,

I replaced, with some hesitation, the battery and all is fine. Thanks for
your help. I am very appreciative.
