    try giving us your system's physical parts and setup. next, try updating the bios. refer to your manual, some mobos have stupid limitations like this (the 815e chipset being a prime example).

    Try resetting the bios with the jumper or removing cmos battery, ensure pc is unplugged from mains first :)
