Whenever I boot up, i can't go to the bios settings until the 2nd reboot. It either hangs or asks me to press F2 first. I've already replaced the cmos battery several times.
I cleared the cmos by placing the cmos pins at the clrrtc mode and returning it to the default mode but after that it no longer goes to bios. it just hangs after the checking nvram message.
Here's the message at boot up:
Press F8 for BBS pop-up (I noticed that before it showed, press ESC for BBS pop-up).
The mch is operating with DDR2-533/cl4 in Single-Channel Mode.
Initializing USB controllers.. Done.
then it hangs.
What's wrong with the PC?
Also, whenever I'm installing, it defaults to EMS installation, which to my knowledge is remote installation. I tried to disable EMS in dos and i was able to do it but upon reboot, I could no longer access the files, it was already locked.
Please note that I am not connected to LAN or the internet so may I ask why my computer is being remotely-controlled , how and by whom.
I have tried reformatting several times but my installation has been acting weird. The sequence of the installation is changing, the fonts are changing and there was a time the installation displayed was that of windows 98 when in fact what i was installing was windows xp.
