Thank you
To reset bios, the easiest way it to take out and then put back in your bios battery on your motherboard. It looks like a watch battery and should be the only one there so it is easy to find. when you next boot it will ask you if you want to load default settings and say yes.

Thank you kiz for your input. I was having the same problem. The fix was a bad SATA cable to my HHD and the motherboard battery was dead. My PC works great!!
