Well I just built my first ever computer build with:

PSU OCZ|OCZ600SXS 600W RT - Retail

CPU INTEL|C2Q Q6600 2.40G 775 8M R - Retail

MEM 2Gx2|OCZ DII800 OCZ2RPR800C44GK - Retail

VGA EVGA 512-P3-N801-AR 8800GT 512M - Retail

DVD BURN PIONEER|DVR-216DBK 20X % - OEM

CASE COOLERMAS|CAC-T05-UW BLK RT - Retail

MB GIGABYTE GA-EP45-DS3L 775 P45 RT - Retail

HD 500G|SAMG 7K 16M SATA2 HD502lJ % - OEM

And when i turn the computer on it works and i go into bios. but when i change anything... even the date and time ONLY it goes black and i can't get it to work again without taking out the bios battery thing or clearing the cosmos with something metal. Please help me fix this. Also when i try and not change the bios and just go through it says:

Boot from CD/DVD:
Disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter.

Whats the system disk? what do i insert? i'm so lost and need help badly.



PLEASE HELP! this is really annoying and i know this will be a great machine if i can just get it to work...

System disc would be your Windows disc. Try setting bios to best known config. or set to default

Let the system stay powered up for 15 mins or so.... see if anything else is causing problems. if you can - go to the BIOS setting that lets you monitor the CPU temp and voltage. go there, but don't change anything...

Your BIOS issue is a new one to me.... If you have a short (metal contact) then it should be far more random. If your CPU is running properly... then its a bad motherboard. Also... try another keyboard. A bad keyboard can cause problems.

If this is a new build as you say, it sounds like you are trying to use a hard drive with Windows on it already and you cannot do that. You need to install Windows to the hard drive.
