Screen says this upon startup.


(Alert! OS Install Mode enabled. Amount of Available memory limited to 256MB. Strike the F1 key to continue, F2 to run setup utility)



Every tool I run on this machine says there is no HDD installed.
F1 does nothing and F2 just goes into the BIOS and shows no sign of a Hard Drive installed anywhere. Please help if anyone has had this problem.

Just popped up!
lady said she found it one day with the side cover cracked loose
and then she noticed this problem
and she has kids!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I inspected it thoroughly and it does not show any signs of tampering.
Oh! by the way it just sits there and the hard drive keeps beeping.
I tried another hard drive and the beeping goes away but still the same.
