1. If you have the old CPU and ram, you could replace the current with the old ones in turns; couple the x2 with the 1GB of ram to see if it's RAM's fault or the other way around 3100+4GB to check the CPU.

2. Check the power/sata cable for the HDD. Replace them if you have others available. It is possible that while changing the stuff inside the case you have accidentally damaged something.

3. Once you boot up, check the SMART status of the HDD with a tool like "speedfan", but be careful to have the smart activated from the bios.

Now for the power cut/CMOS reset thing, I think it may be a battery-related issue. If it acts when you cut the power like it's going thru a CMOS reset, it may as well be a CMOS reset. While plugged in, the PSU supplies the necesary power to keep the CMOS data alive, but when you remove the plug the CMOS relies on the battery. If the battery is dead (which is rare but it happens) the custom data get whiped since nothing is powering the chip. A replace battery can be found in any computer repair store; they are all compatible and you can probably get one for free if you ask nicely

Hope this helps, and welcome back.

I would try that but my bf is using them at the moment with my other mobo while he waits for his upgrades to arrive but did check the ram with my other CPU when it arrived to make sure that worked ok before i changed my CPU to the Dual Core and the lagging didnt happen then but it dosent lag with finding the CPU that bit it speeds through till it passes the ram ok bit then it lags when it has to locate the harddrives then they all pop up and then it speeds through with no probs and I have checked all the wires they seem to be all ok.

I thought it might be the battery but as you say its rare for them to go but they can so will get a new battery and see if that helps with the cosmos prob.

And thank you for the welcome back

This may have been offered already but try using different SATA ports.

The cause of the BIOS getting wiped is probably the battery.

When changing a processor, especially from a single to a dual, its best to reset the BIOS to the defaults before doing the swap. It likely reset due self due to the change.
Furthermore, the battery may be weak and need replacing... usually at about 3v and below is pushing it.

You could also try disabling any ide connectors in the bios that are not in use. That should speed up the drive detection.

Could the boot up clock be set really low? My Bios has a separate setting for that. I haven't touched it, just a thought.
