Computer Booting to BIOS first

My computer boots into BIOS every time i start it up or restart it..... I have tried installing a new BIOS update (didn't do anything), i have checked my boot order (nothing changed). My motherboard is the Asus M5A97 and i have a couple of friends that have this same motherboard with this same problem. I have only recently bought this motherboard to go with my new system that i recently built. So what do i do now, i''m really lost for ideas??

PC Specs:
Motherboard - Asus M5A97
CPU - AMD FX-6300
GPU - Evga GTX 770
SSD - Kingston 120GB (this has my os on it)
Hard Drives - 2x500GB Western Digital

  1. Can you go into Safe Mode (F8) and do a Repair?

    Going through the bios, is everything being recognized (as in memory, drives, etc). Go through each item and see if anything is missing. Mainly, I'm wondering if your memory is being found. Is it compatible with your motherboard? Going through the bios, you should see whatever sticks of memory are installed. You should also see the drives being found and recognized. If everything is being found, do a clear cmos procedure to reset the bios to the basic setting.
