when I start or restart my computer I get a window that says:

Phoenix ROM BIOS Plus Version 1.10 A05
Copyright 1985-1988 Phonix Technolgies LTD
Copyright 1990-2003 Dell Computer Corporation All Rights Reserved

Dell System Dimension 2400 Series
BIOS version A05
www.dell.com

Primary drive 1 not found
Secoundary drive 1 not found

Strike the F1 key to continue, F2 key to run the set up utility

I get this window(screen) every time I start or restart my computer. Lately I got a 1GB PC2700 stick of RAM and put it in in place of one of the 512MB PC2700 sticks. The system did not reconize the new stick even though the owners manual said that the maximum for this system is 2GB. In another area it said the maximum is 1GB? I assume that the system maximum is 1GB not 2GB. I reinstalled the 512MB and my syatem tells me that I have 1GB of RAM.(back to what I use to have). When I start/restart the machine I have to press the F1 key to start it and I never use to have to do anything but tun the machine on to start it or after the machine is running to click on the Start Button and then select Restart. Now after I tried to upgrade my RAM memory I am getting this irritating window that I never use to get. Some setting must have changed and I haven't spotted it in the set up screen?:confused: Anyone got any good ideas??
