Question Hello Guys

Hello again, it's the new guy. It's a pleasure to join the group, my skills are between novice and intermediate, so if I can be of assistance just hit me up. Meanwhile, I have a challenge. I was given a computer to troubleshoot and the problem is, when you turn it on, it goes directly to the BIO and that's it. I'm leaning toward the notion of no operating system, what does the brain trust think?

How old is the PC? It sounds like the CMOS battery is flat and it is asking you to put in some details or press something to continue. If it was getting to the stage of loading the OS the message would probably be telling you to insert a system disk. Anyway, welcome to the forums.
