    probably the bios can't identify or initiate one of the devices. try to remove everything that is connected e.g. pcmcia cards, hard disk drive, dvd drive and see if it boots into the bios setup. then plug in one by one and try again. could also be a different problem e.g. faulty memory bar. if you have two remove them and try to to boot with only one bar at a time.
