    Get "Reboot and Select Proper boot device" when PC at rest

    Whenever I leave my PC for a while I come back to a blank screen with the message "Reboot & select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key". I can only turn the power off, and when I turn it back on it boots up and works fine, at least until I leave it for a while again.
    Thanks for any help,
    Larry

    Hi and welcome! What are your Boot Device settings in the BIOS/UEFI like?

    Re: Get "Reboot and Select Proper boot device" when PC at rest

    The boot priority order is 1-Hard Disk, 2-CD/DVD drive, 3-EFI Device, 4-Removable Device, 5-LAN

    The hard disk drive priority and the optical disk drive priority have my hard drive and optical drives listed, respectively, after pressing enter at the prompt. The other three have nothing.

    Quiet boot - enabled
    Halt On - All, but keyboard

    Thanks for the help.
