BIOS - can't change boot order.

  bridge+ 13:00 01 Feb 08

Recently, my BIOS has started to display ' view only item '; this means I can't change my boot order and few other things as well. Has any one seen this problem before ?
I would appreciate some help.

Many thanks, Colin

Seen it for audio and graphics cards usual trick is to disable in device manager first before trying to change in BIOS.

Never seen it for boot order though.

Is the bios password protected?

Hi Pressman, hi Fruitbat,

Many thanks for your comments.

The BIOS is not protected and device manager does not offer a solution !

Still a mystery.

You could try the following, but first have a read of your motherboard manual or on its web site to confirm if there are "jumpers" to move or just to remove the battery.
Remove the Bios/Cmos battery for a couple of minutes and then replace it. This should clear and reset the bios. Remember check first act later.

Hi Press Man,

Many thanks for you help; I removed the battery for 5 minutes and all is OK now !
