Okay, so basically windows 7 randomly completly crashed on me after I quit a game. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/46457-63-windows-blue... 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.

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.
