My PC stuffs up when it goes into sleep mode.. it won't turn on and the only solution is to reset the CMOS. I had to switch to a high performance power plan otherwise it will go to sleep when its on idle. On the BIOS the drive (Seagate sata II) is set as the 2nd boot device and my other (Samsung sata I) is set as the first. I have Win7 installed on my Seagate and XP on my Samsung. (if i set my Seagate to the first boot device a msg will appear saying "please insert a boot device in bios..... and restart").

I have tried

REformatting the drive
Switching the sata slots
Reinstalling the OS


please help

Format a flash drive as FAT32, copy the ROM over, then when the PC boots up hit Alt+F2 and select the ROM file from the flash drive(have it plugged in obviously)

If its the mobo in your sig, get the update unzip it copy it to a usb flash drive, go into the BIOS select the update option, point it to the bios update. Flash it. Reset the settings to default settings / reconfigure it, save, reboot
