Today I fiddle around with this issue some more. Sometimes when I restart I get a message statin something about a issue with check sum in BIOS? Never had an issue with the bios that I'm aware of. Anyone heard of this?

 

Replace your CMOS battery.

I got an ISO for my version of win7 from microsoft forms but there is a problem it only downloads up to 2gb when the file size posted is 3.1? I was going to bite the bullet and reinstall windows as I found my serial key. I burned the 2 gb file to a dvd and tried to install it. States there are no drivers on disc.Now you understand my handle name!

I noticed after trying restart again my Cmos time and date resetted even though I replaced the battery a few days ago and the internet strength icon is missing. How odd.

It's not odd at all...it's a symptom that you need to replace (not remove) the CMOS battery...then reset the date/time in the BIOS and save the changes made in the BIOS.

 

Sorry...I see that I already suggested that before.

Just a guess here, but I've seen power supplies have some strange effects on systems. If you have one laying around it might be worth a try swapping it out. Maybe a friend has one??? Wrong voltages can cause weird problems with sensitive electronics. Also try disabling hibernation. Kinda doubt that's the problem, but it's a quick try.

Just cleaning up my profile and came across this old thread.

 

So Fluster, did you ever get your issue resolved?
