I was having a problem last night with directX wasn't fully installed. Then when I restarted my computer I stupidly reloaded my fail-safe defaults on my mobo and now it's not reading my Bios anymore, I think that it's trying to read it from another loacation. Just wondering if there is any way of fixing this at all. I have 2 hours at school right now and am hoping to be able to use my computer when I get home. Please if there is anyone that knows how to fix this or change my computer back to using my C: drive to load my bios. All it does right now is load up a black screen and my cd drives do not operate and nothing will function at all, or for what I have seen. anybody that has any information on this at all please leave a message. Thanks for your help

Your BIOS isn't on the hard drive. Probably what you are after is the Operating System, an entirely different thing. When you turn on your machine you shoudl be able to tap the del key (normaly) to enter the BIOS setup screen. From there you should be able to set the boot devices order. It'd help if we knew what BIOS the board used tho (Phoenix, Award, etc)
Do you have an on-board video card?
Try plugging your monitor into the on board graphics. Some BIOSes don't disable the onboard when there is an adaptor installed and most tend to use the onboard as the first device.
Did you try what I suggested?
Right, try this: Unplug everything.
Just have the power to the board connected, RAM seated (if you have multpile sticks, try one at a time), the processor with the HSF attached in place, then connect up your monitor to the onboard video. Make sure yuor PC speaker is attached
Make sure the BIOS has been reset (power on once with JP1 set, then power off)
use a screwdriver to short the power switch pins on hte board.
If that fails, then you should get some kind of beep code. No beep most likely means it is your board that is fried. Some beep codes mean that there is something else up.
