Most likely your CMOS backup battery has died and the CMOS is loosing its settings when you power off.

Open the case and replace the battery.  Then reset the CMOS and you should be all set.

I'm assuming you have an up-to-date virus scanner on your system, right?  Some virus infestations attack the CMOS so you may also want to check that, ESPECIALLY if the system is not old enough to have a dead battery.  Most often batteries fail after 18 months - 3 years.

After you set the CMOS (BIOS) settings as suggested above by jhance, please make sure to SAVE your settings, so that next time you boot, your settings will not default back to the ones that aren't set.
