  1. I just built a computer and I'm stuck in the setup. This is what happened, I started up the computer and pressed F1 to continue. Now I'm stuck in setup, when I restart it goes strait back to this set up. It wont recognize the windows XP CD. What do I do?

    Are you saying it goes back into the BIOS configuration each time you boot? There must be a setting that it doesn't like. Can you post the PC config?

    No problem I just fixed the jumpers. But now it says something about media cable. Do you know what this is?

    What are the jumpers set to? Are you talking about two optical drives on an IDE cable?

    I fixed it all I did was set both the dvd drive and the hard drive to default.
