reset the cmos and try updating the bios or adjusting the bios into failsafe mode. (The cmos battery might be dead.)

i agree with Atari, Boot in to windows and upgrade the BIOS, Even if you are running the latest version run the install again and overwrite the current BIOS, it could be that your current BIOS is corupt
