I'm having a little trouble with my PC... I hope I've come to the right place. I left my computer in "suspend" last night, and when I sat in front of it this morning, it was frozen at my BIOS screen. Each time I try to restart it, it goes straight to that screen. I can't even access my BIOS settings (pressing keyboard buttons doesn't work). Nothing changed when I placed my XP disk in the ROM drive.
I'm using an ASUS mobo and AMD processor. (Sorry, I can't recall the particular models right now.) I have not changed any hardware or software recently.
In my experience, it's a characteristic of ASUS's AMI BIOS. I have experienced it when flashig the BIOS on occasion. Usually just unplugging the PSU solves the CMOS resetting issue. If not, a reset of the CMOS jumper with the battery removed will do it.
