    Hi topps and welcome to TechSpot :)

    all you should have to do is clear CMOS. this will reset your BIOS back to it's default settings.

    most motherboards have a CLR CMOS jumper. if your does, then turn your computer off and move the jumper into the CLR position for a few seconds, then move it back into the NRM (normal) position. then turn your PC back on.

    if your mobo doesn't have a jumper, than you will have to remove the CMOS battery for a few seconds. both methods will clear the CMOS and reset your BIOS.

    cheers :wave:
