... Boot device and press a key ^This message has appeared every time I have started up my notebook for the past day. I bought the "Z71V @769, PM760+319, 1gb/2+130, 80gbH+135, , , WiFi+39, , Combo+75, 1ext+49" (don't know what that means, hopefully someone can decipher that for me) from TechSpot during Christmas 2005 and installed Windows XP Professional. A few months ago, XP completely stopped working, and I formatted everything and installed Windows Vista Ultimate. It has been working satisfactorily (except for a couple of off and on crashes, which were maybe because the software was not supported by Vista). In early June, I sent it back because it would not boot (for a different reason; I think the response said the VGA card would be replaced). It came back working, so I asked no further questions. Again, it worked fine except for a few crashes/freezes. I left the computer on yesterday night. My wife turned it off because it was extremely loud and hot (it usually is; I suspect that overheating may have causes some crashes, as well). I thought it was no big deal. The next morning, I turned on my computer to discover the obnoxious message: "Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key." Here's some info from the BIOS SETUP UTILITY and anything I can muster up at the time. ASUS Z7100 AMIBIOS: Version: 0208 Processor Type: Intel (R) Pentium (R) M Speed: 2000MHz System Memory Size: 1024MB I have a few questions while I'm here: 1. How can I fix my notebook? Should I send it back, again? 2. Is this type of notebook supposed to be so loud and hot? Is a fan broken? 3. Does Vista hinder the ability to install several drivers? I had trouble installing the driver for the nVIDIA graphics card, among others. I never got it installed, since the computer was working fine without it. Thanks in advance for any help I can get. Ask me if you need more information.
