Cannot start system start up

Don't know if anyone can help, but here goes.

I have just purchased a new CSL Sprint 5766. OK, I know it's only a cheepo, but I have restricted funds.

After plugging in etc, and after switching on, all I get is the ASUS BIOS Utility. Anyone any idea how I can start-up Windows?

Thanks.

In the BIOS does it show you a hdd listed anywhere? Sounds like your os is corrupt or it is not seeing a hdd in the first place. You can try as it is starting up from off keep hitting F8 and it should give you a boot menu and show your hdd. Did it come with 8.1 or 7?

Contact where you bought it and make them fix it. Should never be a problem when first used.

I think the OS is an option on this box. Did you actually buy it with an OS. Else this is a nice box for the money.
