That's strange. Usually your run the BIOS setup (to view and change the settings) before the POST (Power On Self Test) start.
It seems something is very wrong with the hardware. All you can do:
- reset the BIOS with the jumper (should be in the motherboard manual how to do it)
- remove the CMOS-battery for a few minutes to reset the BIOS
If still no luck, replacing the motherboard is the next step.
My daughter's pc failed to start reporting a read HD failure. I tried to run advanced WD diagnostics (the HD is a WD brand), but since the process failed to start, I quit and tried to reboot. But, now I got no POST signals. I can't access my CMOS.
What can I do?
