Your PC or notebook always boots into the BIOS setup utility when you turn it on. Even if you use the Boot Device Menu (F8 on Asus based machines) the BIOS setup utility still appears.
This is caused by the BIOS not being able to find a device that it can boot from. This may be due to BIOS settings, or failed hardware.
Follow the following Steps:
Tip: A quick way of seeing if the hard drive is still being detected, without going into the BIOS, is to try and use the BIOS boot device menu. Tap the Boot Menu function key right after turning the machine on until the menu is displayed. The boot menu function key is F8 on Asus based machines, F10 on Intel based systems, F11 on MSI based systems and F12 on many other brands of motherboard.
