Start up issue

Post by baylid01 » Tue Jan 12, 2010 5:48 am

For 5 months i have been putting up with a start up message " Realtec RTL 811QS Gigabyte boot agent, press F10 to configure". I don't know why this comes up all the time and when i press F10 it doesnt correct the issue anyway.

The computer still starts eventually if i dont press F10 but what is going on with this message and how do i fix it?

That message is from your BIOS.
The option to "Boot from LAN" (or PXE boot) is enabled.

Should be listed along with the other boot options in your bios, just set to disabled and you should be good to go.

There may be a setting for a 'Delay before Boot' or somesuch. Reduce it to 0. There is nothing wrong with your computer, a BIOS open prompt is normal and all computers have it.
