    You need to visit your BIOS again. In there will be entries for boot priority or boot options.
    Select hard drive as the first boot device. Read any notes or help items on the screen to help
    you make the change. If you have more than one hard drive, there will be a method of choosing which drive gets to boot.

    More exact help can be obtained if you state make and model of your computer.

  5. That number you supplied is not the brand or model of the board, it is the Southbridge chip.

    The make and model of the board may be printed using the silkscreen method and usually is done with white paint. The name and model may be in larger letters than the numbers on the chip you saw.
