Re: comp help

Reset your CMOS. Do this by removing the small watch-like battery from the motherboard. Also unplug the 24 pin ATX power connector as well. Hold down the power switch to completely discharge the system. After about 2-3 minutes put the battery back in and reconnect the ATX plug. Turn on the system.

See if that works.
