Hi

Please let us know what make of laptop it is. This does sound more like a hardware or bios issue than an issue with the OS but do you know which version of linux you are running on your machine normally? Also do you have any Linux Cds around?

Also this forum might be able to help

Good luck and regards from
Tom :)

You should check your booting devices in the bios settings maybe someone changed it...
