This is my suggestion.
unplug the computer from the wall outlet.
open it up and unplug the molex plug from the power supply to the main board.
locate the manufacturer name or serial number and search for said board on the net.
find a user manual and instructions on resetting the board.
sometimes removing the CMOS battery will suffice and sometimes
you need to move a jumper to reset the board.
It might be in a state of "shock" (internal protection) from installing the
Current systems: WHAT OS, BackTrack-raw, PCLinuxOS, Peppermint OS 6, Kali Linux
and a custom Linux From Scratch server hosting a bunch of top secret stuff.
