1 chances are you have a floppy disk in the drive.a solution would be to remove the disk and press any key.

2 This is a common problem with the machines with removable drives Very often the IP students will pull on the little handles and dislodge the drive a bit.a Solution to this would be to push on the front of the drive so that it re-attaches and resets the computer
