You may have to clear the BIOS settings. Look on the motherboard for a jumper with "CLR_CMOS" printed on the board (usually near the BIOS chip). Unplug the power cord from the wall. Move the jumper from the default position so it covers the middle pin and the pin that was uncovered in the default position. After about 10 seconds, re-place the jumper to the default position (the way you originally found it). Plug in the power cord, power-on your system, and enter the BIOS to reset any custom changes you made before you had the problem.
If there is a small battery on your motherboard, you could also try removing the battery for a few seconds which will also clear the cmos and reset them to the factory defaults. can you get to the last known good configuration option?
