I wanted to get into the bios settings and was able to get into the delete key set up screen and make changes. But when I hit f10 to save and exit it takes me to a black screen and stays there. I am unable to do anything except manually shut it down from the back panel. It will boot right up again with no problems. I also tried to go to the control h bios screen because I wanted to see if I could find out the version of the bios that this board has and it completely bypasses it and goes to the windows welcome screen. Another thing I noticed was that when I am doing something and need to restart the computer for whatever reason.... it takes forever for it to log off and restart. But if I choose to just shut it down it logs right off and shuts down.... it's only when I want to reboot it. Anyone got any suggestions as to why this may be happening??? Any help would be appreciated.
You are going to have to clear CMOS. Unplug the PC and remove the battery for a while.
Next time you boot up, you should get a "CMOS checksum error". Now's the time to copy the BIOS string (with the date) at the screen bottom.
