When it starts up, hold it until you can select which boot device you want.

I think I was holding and will give it another shoot - don't think it will work!

I had the same issue yesterday, man.
Just make sure the Windows disc is in the disc drive. lol.

If that doesn't work, clear CMOS. If that doesn't work, then RMA. :/

I don't know, honestly. I reset the CMOS by taking out the battery. I haven't used jumpers before.

Now i am stuck, can't pass this point - message on the screen:

(on the top lists all my hardware including cpu, ram, recognized hd and dvd drive then say this)

cmos setting wrong
press f2 or del to run setup
press f1 to load default values and continue


problem is i can't pass this screen. Pressing any f key doesn't help! I'm just stuck at that screen and have to restart by using the power button on the pc (alt+ctrl+del is not working - but the keyboard works).

any ideas? Help.




i tried without booting without the hd, also took the mobo battery out for a few minutes - it didn't help.
I only have a single memory stick, dvd-rom, hd (no jumpers!!!!?????? Could that be a problem problem?).

fans are spinning (including cpu fan), no bent legs on cpu....
any more thoughts on this?

Yes. That's what has done it.

Turn the PC off, remove the battery, move the jumper to the reset position. Leave it there for about 15secs, put it back to the normal position, and put the battery back in.

OK thanks to all. I am back in business with a 24hour delay thanks to dumb f**k behind the keyboard yours truly.

Here is what happened:
My initial boot was OK. The build was OK but I was working with a back up Windows CD that wasn't bootable CD!!! I thought the problem was the hardware but actually all I needed is my original CD.
So that is when I booted with the CMOS in reset position....that created the error that I couldn't figure out. Once I realized that was the issue; put the batter back in, reset CMOS and boot no problems.

Right now I am installing windows. Thanks for your continuous support through the dark hours and minutes of earlier today.

More to follow.... I got pics and will include the specs.
I'll probably start a new thread this one is getting long.

Viva Overclock.net and you my fellow nerd.
