Default Flanker's SATA problems, Version 3.

EDIT: You guys want me to post pics of this stuff?

Hi again.

OK, I put in the OS CD and started the PC. The first screen that comes up is "Press Del to go into Setup (BIOS) or press Tab to go into POST screen." Since I'm done in BIOS, I press "Tab." It goes into what I'm guessing is the post screen. In this screen it tells the name of the processor and it counts the memory, I suppose its checking the memory. Right now, at the bottom of the screen, it says "Press Del to go into Setup, or press ALT+F2 to access AWDFLASH."

At this point, the computer freezes. I've restarted the comp many times and the first couple of times it went into another screen that displayed all the statistics of my PC.

In case you're wondering, if I don't do anything at the first "Del to enter BIOS" screen, then it goes on to another blank black screen with a little flashing underscore in the top-left corner.

I think I set the records for the most views, and the least posts, lol.

It sounds like you have a problem with your BIOS.

Reset your CMOS by using the jumpers (check your manual).
