    Well I recently installed a new motherboard, it was the same as the old one but I was convinced the old one was fried. Now I am trying to reinstall everything, only when ever I boot and try to install, it says I have a disc read error. This is understandable because the drive was previously formatted for a NAS system. So I go into the BIOS and change it to boot from the CD rom first, so I can install windows and reformat I save it, and exit. This is where the problem begins. The computer does not restart, or shut down, but goes into sleap mode, and wont come out of it. So I am forced to turn the computer off, and then the BIOS does not recognize the changes, and the process is repeated with the same ending. Could you help me understant why it would do this?
