I have a rather old Mesh computer that has always been very reliable albeit a bit slow. The operating system is an upgrade to Windows XP taht was put in several years ago. Suddenly, when switched on a screen headed Awards BIOS Setup Utility comes on and the computer locks up. What can I do ?

1. Disconnect any usb devices that are plugged in and retry.

2. disconnect DVD drives and retry

3. remove and refit memory modules one at a time and retry.

4. remove and refit graphics / sound cards and retry

Make sure no disk or CDs in drives first and retry to boot.
