Computer Q&A Board  /  Questions  /  f1 is needed to boot up my PC?

My PC wont start unless I press the 'F1' button while it's booting up? Otherwise I just get a black screen with a small blinking dash in the upper left screen. After pressing F1 it boots up and 'all is well'. What is causing this, and how can I repair it?

   There are suggestions at this website.  It gives three possibilities: go into CMOS setup and save the settings without making any changes, go into CMOS and correct any problems there, and replace a dead CMOS battery.
   Other possibilities are that something is wrong with your A drive or your BIOS needs to be flashed (this should only be done as a last resort).
