|every time i start up my computer i get this screen with an "American megatrends" logo (or AMI) and the message is as follows|
press f12 for BBS POPUP

after this it brings me to the options screen to either start windows repair (recomended) or start windows normally. when i pick repair it starts and attepts repairs and i left it for a day and a bit and it was still attepting repairs and when i try to start windows normally it will sit at the logo and wont start up. FYI im not big into computers i dont really know much so if you could put it in simple terms for me to understand that would be appreciated.
i should also note that the computer im using at the moment is not the computer that has the problem
