At some point we were having issues with blue screens due to what seemed like nvidia drivers crashing constantly, and one of the options on one forum was to unplug or replace the CMOS battery. Unplugged it and put it back in, and not a single blue screen for about 6 months. The blue screens started again with the Nvidia crashes (I can NOT find a stable driver). So the battery was unplugged again, but this time when we start the comp it says "reboot and select proper boot device, or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key."
"Boot mode is set to: Legacy; Secure boot; off
P0: HL-DT-STDVD+/-RW GA31N
Change Boot Mode Setting"
Under Aptio Setup Utility>Boot
"Set Boot Priority is set to [Legacy]
Set Boot Priority

It is an Alienware x51, I can't give much more info as we really don't know where to look for it. ANY help getting this computer to boot into Windows/my HD would be appreciated.
