On stat my computer goes to bios, without any beep.
all settings are fine, when i exit with or without saving, it again goes to bios.
however when i exit bios and press ESC button it goes to windows.
i have recently formatted my hard drive and changed my button cell battery.
I have win98SE installed.
but it goes to bios every time i start system, and with esc i can work.
can anyone help to get rid of this cycle?

Thanks

Well...with a system that old...it could be almost anything...from PSU to CPU to hard drive to motherboard.

I would suggest starting with the cheap stuff...replace the CMOS battery, then reset the BIOS :).
