    Hi im in the dumps.

    Iong story short, I gullably fell into the microsoft tech trap.
    my ISP told me not to reset/turn off the comp but the house electricity caved in and its 2.30 in the morning and I got an assessment which I typed up but havnt sent. now im scared as all hell.

    is there any immediate response I can get from you guys to cure it.

    I was brought here by google by a guy with same problem.

    As far as I know the computer is a Desktop running Windows7

    Motherboard I believe is p5n32-e SLI

    but that is pretty much as knowledgable as I get about harddware.

    What. ISP talking to you about PC? Where did you get this PC from? Someone set a password in the BIOS - we can't help you crack it.
