If you have your motheboar manual with you read the section regarding
clearing the cmos memory shortcircuiting it via a jumper. If you do not
have the manual try to get hold to the websþte of the board maker it
might help you there.

I had a similar problems and cmps shortciruit helped.

Hope this helps
