Nelson, force the bios into its setup. Unplug the powercord from the PC and open the case. Now remove the CMOS battery and let it set for 10-15 minutes or so, then replace the battery and attach the power cord and boot the system. If the bios is not infected with a virus, it will boot and advise you that the CMOS parameters need to be reset.
