    Sounds like a call to the local exorsist may be needed...

    Seriously, you may need to update the BIOS. Check with the motherboard manufacturer on aquiring the latest bios and see if that helps. Otherwise, you could have a short somewhere. You can open the case and look for the little thin wires that go to the motherboard from all the switches on the cover, gently unplug them and reseat them. If both ends are able to be disconnected, perform that on both ends.
