ok, what u need to do is not let your friend set it, but look at the as5 setting FAQ's here ( that include pictures ) and do it yourself,

to reset the bios, in other words you need to reset CMOS, there are two ways that i know of, one easy and one,,,a little harder

first way, there is a circular battery on the motherboard , it is very hard to miss, what you want to do is unplug everything from the computer, psu,audio,internet,mouse,keyboard,and monitor, then what you want to do is open the case, locate this battery then take it out, and wait a good safe 15 minutes, ( this internally causes the CMOS to die, which causes it to loose all the information it has, when the battery is inside, it saves your last bios setup to boot up next time ) after around 15 minutes your mobo should be dead. put the battery back in and plug everything back in and you have successfully cleared CMOS. and when you boot up, the bios will use default settings.

second way is to short the mobo, ( also causing it to lose the cmos info ) , what you have to do is locate your CMOS manual ( if you dont know where the cmos pin is ), when you locate the CMOS pin, it should say right next to the two pins, "cmos clr", now what you want to do, is take the above step of unplugging everything, then getting a pin and jumping the mobo, start the comp (which causes the short ), then turn it off, then take the pin out, and vvwala...you have cleared cmos, the annoying way.

i got a great idea, how about flashing your bios to the most current version, the sensors would possibly be more sensitive, and btw to make sure your cpu is really running at 69C touch the heatsink *gently* if its hotter then hell, that means its really above 60C+, if its ambient, then its around 40-48C

so then you can analyze what problem you have, say your bios says its running at 70C, but the heatsink feels like its 40C, then you definetly have a heat-transfer problem.
