Insert Boot Diskette in A
Hi all,
I am having trouble starting my desktop computer. I keep getting this message:

Press any key when ready

Any suggestions for what I can do are greatly appreciated.

Make sure the Bios isn't set to boot from your A: drive.

It should be booting from your hard drive, which is usually C: .

While there, make sure the drive is detected and displayed correctly.
