try restoring default bios and maybe even flashing the bios and upgrading the firmware on the chip. if that dosent work will think of someting else

go to your manufactures website

hi if you want to go a head and flash the bios read teh model and manufactor of the motherboarded and go to there website you should see bios updates or whatever under support

and if you wnat ot restor default setting in bios go into the bios menu and there will be an option proberly on the left callled restore bios or something similar.
to get to the bios menu reboot adn look ourt for the word bios and there will be like click f1 or del to enter. it will also tell you how ot enter your bios in your manufactors documetation
