This could be a corrupt bios, remove the side casing of the pc and either remove the cmos disc shaped battery on motherboard for 10 mins or so or locate the JBAT1 terminal on the motherboard and put jumper from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3 for a couple of seconds then back to 1-2.\015\012\015\012You will have to reset the time and date inthe bios when it prompts you to do so on startup normally by pressing F1 or F2, save the settings then exit and try to boot up again.
