  1. My friends computer boots directly to the "Advance" tab on the BIOS screen where there are two errors. One is "CPU Internal Frequency" and "CPU Core." I tried restoring the defaults but the screen just went black, and I had to restart manually. Any Ideas on what could be causing this?

    Reset your BIOS the old fassion way... LOL

    1. Remove the CMOS battery, some people say for up to 2 hours.... i say remove the battery, unplug the power cable, then hold the power for about 1 min. (the leave power off for up to 2 hours+ is to let the Capacitors drain any residual charge they may have stored... holding the power button opens the circuit allowing all power to drain out)

    Plug everything back in and BIOS reset.....
