When I try to boot up my computer it does not go past the cmos section . What should I do?

Question

when i try to boot up the computer, it wont get past the cmos section. It wont even start to load or show any of windows, but i know the computer was working a couple days ago. I made sure the bios was set to load off of the hard drive, because it doesnt have a network connection or anything special. Is there a problem with the hard drive not responding? I'm really clueless on how to get it to operate, so if you could get back to me i'd appreciate it.

thanks.

ryan.

You might need a boot disk if you don't have one you can go to any computer running window 95 and click Start / Settings / Control Panel / double click the Add Remove programs icon / click the Startup Disk and create disk.

This should help you.
