It sounds like you have a much different problem then a BIOS issue. Please share with us what exactly the computer is doing and any error codes.

All I have got is the startup screen where the microsoft flag loads up then the screen flashes blue and reboots,the problem is it flashes so fast there is no time to read the error codes on it.I have tried everything from win95 through to windows 8 and the same thing.

It sounds like a hardware issue.... I would start with downloading and running memtest overnight. It is a self booting CD and should run no problem on your crippled system.

Thanks for your help,I have already run memtest and it has shown no errors,I am beginning to think its the hhd controller or the chipset drivers that are the problem,but as I have said I am not sure how to install them from the command prompt or if they will even run from the cmd prompt?
thanks again.
