WHS retail, worked fine for couple months but now will not get past bio screen. is this hardware failure or update problem? RRS feed


  • Hello,

    If it does not even show the try to boot Windows, it is usually a hardware problem.

    Do you have connected external devices via USB or a floppy in drive? Disconnect/remove them.

    You can try to reset the bios to its defaults as well.

    Does it recognize the harddisks?

    As a last resort you can open the case, check the seating of the cables and disconnect the disks one by one to see, if you get different results.

    Best greetings from Germany
