Question motherboard help

ok, so last night i replaced my power supply since mine was going out... after many complications, the only way i can boot up in windows is when my cmos on the mobo is set to clear... it seems to work just fine logging into windows, but i found it very strange... any ideas?

Default Re:

Hello,

So what happens then? Does it POST successfully (Power on and detect hardware etc..) but then fail to boot into the Operating System? Does a message appear?

Make sure that after you've cleared your CMOS, that your BIOS settings are configured correctly. Most importantly, ensure that you've defined the order boot order of your devices in the BIOS.
