    It could be a lot of things, but the fact that you are having problems with
    the BIOS boot before it even starts to load your operating system, makes me
    wonder if you are having problems with your hard drive. Do you have any
    thing like SpinRite or the Western Digital Diagnostic program that you can
    use to check your hard drive?

    Also, check the clock in BIOS and make sure it's correct. I have
    heard of this happening when the battery on the mainboard is
    discharged. If your PC is 3 or 4 years old, this could be a viable
    cause.
