last night i was on my computer as usual, and the computer decided to shut down. it wouldn't reboot, and this had happened before so many times that i knew i needed to reset the bios/cmos whatever you want to call it. so i did that just like i have done on several occasions in the past. then i noticed a small red pin just like the cmos pin (but its not that, the cmos pin is in the right place) rolling around in my case. i grabbed that and put it on my desk and tried to reboot. "error loading os" - never happened before. i dont know if this red pin has anything to do with it, or how long it's been rolling around in there, or how this error relates to whatever happened, please help though because it's a scary error and i want to get back on my comp thx.....
and if the red pin doesn't have to do with this, well, it must go somewhere in there, suggestions?
