i recently encountered a strange error with my computer, everytime i turn it on it it comes up with a black screen that has the option of entering the bios menu and booting from the network, ive tried going to both of those and they dont work and it comes up with the error message 162-system options not set and then when it goes away a blue box comes up saying power-on password? Can someone please help me solve this problem and get my computer working again. Thanks in advance :/

I work in IT Tech support (Hardware & Networking) so have a fair bit of knowledge and experience but this one has really got me stumped. I got a tower running XP Pro on IDE 0 with DVD RW and on IDE1 I got 2nd data HDD. Both are Maxtor drives. It’s a fairly old machine but serves its purpose until recently. The problem started when I accidently left my USB flash drive in and forgot when I booted. My legacy USB devices were set as priority in boot sequence so I got message "Operating System not found" since there …
