[Solved] Major problems

Okay, so basically windows 7 randomly completly crashed on me after I quit a game. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/46457-63-windows-bluescreen-startup So, I decided to install Windows 8. Now, Windows 8 is working fine, unless I go into the settings like Startup Options, then I just get a never ending black screen. I also don't see my BIOS splash screen on startup, just straight into Windows 8. I disabled the Fast boot option in Windows 8 and I still don't get a bios, or when I hit Del during boot I get a black screen. It seems like my BIOS is completely gone? I even went as far as removing my hard drives too see if it would give me the 'no media detected', and it just turns on and goes to a black screen....

Any help would be HIGHLY appreciated.

  2. Can you tell me how to do this? It's a Alienware Aurora R4.
  3. on the mb guild it should show you where the jumper is. on most mb it be on the bottom of the mb it be a white or black jumper near the cmos battery. it say clear_cmos. with the pc off you just move the jumper over to the other two pins and wait 2 min then move it back.
