Computer was taking forever to start up programs and my browser kept freezing for no apperant reason.The computer's only a year old and I've never had this problem before. I shut it down to give it a break since I always leave my computer running. When I turn it on it usually shows a screen for my motherboard and a "press delete to enter BIOS settings" at the bottom, but for no longer than a second. Now when I start my computer it is stuck on this screen and I tried waiting it out but it never went past this point. I hit delete just to see if I could get to my BIOS, but there was no power going to my keyboard. I had three internal hard drives and one external plugged in and the problem with the key board made me think it could be a power problem. I unplugged all hard drives except the one with the OS on it and it had no effect. Any of you guys got any ideas what could be causing this?

Clear your CMOS then boot. Check if it has any effects.
Try to run memtest86+ on all your RAM sticks if it has errors then that might be the issue. Also, a complete system specification would be great! :D
