Try loading defaults in BIOS (or a CMOS reset if you can't enter BIOS).

BIOS is reached from the very first screen when you start up your PC. On screen it should say which key to press to enter Setup. Acording to Tips N Tricks: Comprehensive List of How (Key to Press) to Access BIOS for Various OEM and Computer Systems it should be F2 for you.

For CMOS reset check your PC manual.
