    It seems that when i start up my computer and then go into Bios, the computer will freeze right inside bios after like 30 seconds. When i restart the pc , and wait for windows to load up , after logging into my windows account , the screen of my computer will instantly turn black and sstay like that. I tried going into bios again and the very same thing occurs. I've checked to see that every hard ware is hooked up properly and i restarted cmos, but problem still occurs. I'm not sure , but i think the problem for this could be that , before these series of events happenning , i went into bios and selected load OPTIMIZED DEFAULTS for every thing in "Genie BIOS" . I'm wodering if anyone knows how i could solve this problem , or knows exactly what is wrong

    Have you messed lately with the files in the Windows or System32 files?
    have you tried starting the PC in safe mode?

    Hmm but his computer is freezing in the bios.

    What's the CPU temperature? (look in the bios, try to get it before the comp freezes. )

    well, if you're quick enough....hehe.....
    boot into the BIOS again and try setting it to fail safe defaults,
    if you can get it selected before the BIOS freezes
    (should only take a few seconds to get to the selection)
    then hit F10 (or whatever your save & exit hotkey is)

    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.

    DOH!
    yeah, that should clear the optimized settings
    (i never seem to think of the easy way to do things)

    if not, there's always pulling the battery out for a few seconds
    but assuming the PC was NEW in september, there should be a jumper
