Dell Optiplex gx240 Cannot boot from any device.

By sageauk ·
I have a Dell Optiplex gx240 Cannot boot from any device be it cdrom or hard disk.
It cannot even save the boot device priority, on that window it just displays "n" on devices detected. (I have attached the links to the pictures)

Even after Pressing Ctrl+Alt+F8 to select the device manually, it still reports "No boot device detected press F1 to retry or F2 to enter setup."

It seems the Computer can detect the Drives too well

If so not only is this dangerous but it indicates that the unit has been dropped and most likely damaged more than just the screen. At the very least you'll need to remove the HDD and Optical Drive and refit them to make sure that they are correctly fitted and have not moved.

But the reality here is that I think you'll find damage tot he M'Board which renders this unit unusable.
