Your BIOS is corrupted. Did you flash BIOS through Windows?
Clear your CMOS and see. Then...
To fix this put the driver DVD in your DVD drive or hit <End> or <F8> (Can't remember which) during POST with DVD in the drive. See page 62-64(?) in the manual.

Is the motherboard damaged ?
SHould I replace it ?

he problem was solved by Changing the DIMM Memory slots.
I had previously placed my 2 x 2GB memory slots in DDRII2 and DDRII4
I changed it to
DDRII1 and DDRII3
Now my computer is working fine
