  1. Your motherboard should have come with a CD/DVD with software and drivers on it. You should install them. :)
  2. But might want to check the mobo makers site, they may have a newer version

    thanks guys i found the issue HOWEVER now whenever i boot my computer it says im missing a booting device? LOL gg i knew i should have just bought a pc from bestbuy or something.. -_-
  4. Take out any usb drives and CDs from the system, try again. Also check to make sure you have the hard drive listed in the BIOS and that it's listed in the boot device selection. You may want to set it as the first boot device. If you can't see the drive listed, reseat the connectoins for it.
