Windows 7: PC freezes at BIOS entry screen, can't do anything.

No physical damage on my motherboard, I'll try to reconnect all cables connecting to it.
How do I check if the ram is faulty?

Nothing once again, I'm starting to think I'll need to change some hardware to fix it. If nothing else works then I'll contact the person who built my PC to see if they can come over and have a look.

I've asked a friend he told me to reset my CMOS settings through my motherboard, reckon that will help?

Your System Specs don't show your motherboard.
Using your motherboard manual instructions clear CMOS and reboot.
It will put your CMOS back to default.

Some good reading.

Well while I was getting coffee your friend gave the same suggestion I just posted. It can help sometimes. I have done it many times and it has never hurt.
When done check your bios time and date to make sure it is correct.
Then check the Windows 7 time for correctness.

Tried to reset it twice, nothing has worked. Heard it might be a BIOS chip failure. I think I might contact the person who built this PC for me to come and check it out.

Oooohh! I never liked the idea of a hardware failure. But, what can you do? If it has to be done, it will be. Do keep us posted Zam. Maybe, the issue gets resolved by something else. Do share with us.
