I just opened my Pc to put thermal paste on my computer, booted it up and I'm getting a weird issue.

It won't let me hit del into bios and tries to load windows and says disc boot failure.

If I boot with a windows cd it'll load the files however. I can't get into to the bios to see if the boot order is messed or something....anyone have any ideas?

FWIW when i put the windows CD in i can't repair windows, but when i go to install windows i can see both my harddrives, and if i look for a driver i can navigate my boot drive just fine.

I'm guessing maybe a bad bios battery? FML such a hassle.

go bios , select first boot in CD --- save bios --- boot --- insert CD OS --- in screen show insert Disk boot --- enter !
if your mobo cannot save like above try remove battery mobo , first time unplug power AC from PSU -- remove battery mobo --- let 10minutes --- put it back -- try turn on pc.

Didn't work, I can't get into the bios. This has never been an issue before with getting in. My K/B is turning on too. I ran chkdsk on both cd's fine in windows recovery, so im assuming its not the hds?

I tried running bootrec /rebuildbcd and it says found windows installation on E add to boot or w/e, I select "Yes" then it says device not found,

it says exactly:

Loading Operating System . . .
Boot from CD/DVD :
Boot from CD/DVD :
Disk Boot Failure, Insert System Disk and Press Enter

Boot from cd/dvd : PUSH ENTER , don't wait it !
If your pc can't do it you need other cd os installer.
