Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Alert! previous attempts at booting this system have failed at checkpoint [WRIT.] -- Optiplex GX270 Dell Computer

One guy set it to CD and booted a CD (a bootable one) fine. I would make sure it set to the first Hard Drive. He also said something about: went to the "event log" section and cleared the last event (actually the only one showing). I saved the settings, then booted up again and this time it booted up normally.
