Inspiron 1520 wont boot first time

Hi all,

I have a Dell Inspiron 1520, and every time I boot it up, the first time it wont go to the OS, but it will go to a black screen with a little flashing cursor in the top left. Upon turning off and on again, it boots to OS. I was wondering what causes this issue?

Cheers,
James

It sounds like it's trying to boot from the dvd or usb drive first try going into setup and changing boot order to HD first.

See, I thought that too, but I checked it and it was definitely HDD first 😕
