  1. Dear Sir,

    Today morning my computer got stuck while booting & with the massage "Press [TAB] to show POST screen or [DEL] to enter SETUP". After that as per my knowledge I removed the battery for 5 minutes & replaced with new battery also the same.... after that I removed the Jumper & re-fixed also the same.

    Please tell me what to do?

    Thanks in advance.

    Removing the battery and using the jumper will only have set the Bios back to its default settings. I would first run a test on the hard drive as I would suspect the boot sector is corrupt or the drive is faulty. What happens if you press the Tab or Del key when asked? Will it boot into safe mode if you tap the F8 key from the moment you push the power button.

    Please provide the details of your PC and the version of windows you are using.

    As you have reseated all the componenets and connectors then it is clear that there was a bad connection somewhere.

    I assume you mean the motherboard chipset drivers? If so your best place for downloading the drivers is from the manufacturers site (see the link below) this also has an automatic update facility to make the job a lot simply and avoid getting the wrong drivers.
