I'm sure this tutorial was posted earlier but it tells you how to make a bootable USB drive.USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create But before we go any further it would be nice if you would go to your user CP and then edit system specs so we know what motherboard were talking about and we can go to the site and check out the bios information they provide in order to give you more clear and precise information. If you need help finding out your system specs you can use any number of programs to find them such as this one http://www.piriform.com/speccy Or |MG| HWiNFO32 3.53-759 Download We are trying to help but you really need to fill in your system specs. Thanks Fabe

Hey sorry for the late reply. Thanks for that post. I did screenshots on page 1 with info on what specs my pc has. Right now it doesn't boot up otherwise I would download speccy to make things more easier for me to understand and edit my profile.
I now believe the problem is with the cmos battery as I have been getting a "checksum" error and for a long time now my computer time would change itself, usually reset to 2006 so probably no need for a BIOS update and just a battery change. Seems like a simple thing to do from the manual and I'll keep safe from getting a shock haha.
Once I've changed the battery I will post here how everything goes. Thanks for helping guys!
