Hi and welcome to Tom's forum.

Enter to your BIOS and look for the "Quick boot" options, enable it and try again.

You might want to rethink using raid-0. For most desktop users, there is no meaningful performance gain. Why mess with the issues?

Hi well the fact is i have already set up raid-0 so i think it is a little late for that, but for some reason I can not git into bios on start up it ignores me when I hit (tab). know why this might be, i know ive been in bios before.

Thanks for both of your answers though I appreciate it.

Are you sure that it's the <tab> key that you need to use to get into the BIOS? On a lot of systems it's the <Del> key, <F2> key, or some other special key.

^Agree, usually the TAB key is the key used for show all that you say, at least in Gigabytes mobos.

NVM i got it i had to press tab on the raid screen. But quick boot was already enabled I fixed the problem by changing a setting from "FORCEBIOS" to "Current"

Thanks so much for the help everyone.
