You need to open the computer case, [observe anti-static precautions 
<>] locate the "reset 
CMOS" Jumper pins. There should be three pins in the group, with a 
jumper currently on pins one and pin two, remove the jumper, and short 
pins two and three with the jumper for a few seconds. Now move it back 
to pin one and two, and your BIOS settings will be at their defaults.

Close the case, and boot up and you should be in good shape.

Merry Christmas!

Later, Ray Parrish
