Thanks for the update.
Still not detecting all the sensors on the board or the CPU, There may well be some heat damage. There are also other issues but we will try a BIOS reset to see if the sensor chips appear.

Important. Please perform tasks in the order given,

1. Reboot the computer and enter the BIOS.
You will need to find the option and select, , load default setting/load optimized setting/load safe setting, or something similar. > save setting and exit.
After the computer starts.
Reboot, enter BIOS, look for PC health or monitoring. It should show, temps/fan speed/voltage.
Take a screen shot, Please add to your next post.
**********************
2. Go, > start, > control Panel, > Power Options.
At the moment these are your setting.
Power Profile
Active power scheme: Balanced
Hibernation: Enabled
Turn Off Monitor after: (On AC Power): Never
Turn Off Hard Disk after: (On AC Power): 15 min
Suspend after: (On AC Power): Never
Screen saver: Disabled

Please change the hard Disk option to, never.


> click save, or save As, you may have to put in a new name, if you get warnings about changing the scheme, click OK, or yes.
Reboot the computer if it does not auto do so.
Please go back to the Power Options and confirm that the HDD is set to Never.

Hi,
Having real trouble entering the BIOS. I've looked all over the Internet and haven't found the correct key. I have tried F1-12, Esc,Del and have gone through nearly every key on the keyboard without success. I will try again tomorrow. Thanks again!

The keys to enter BIOS for yor computer are, F1 or F10. at Boot, press the F1 key every two seconds, if fail, try the F10.
If successful, carry out the steps in Post #17.

If Fail.


Reset the BIOS by using the jumper.

Switch off the PSU, take anti static measures.
Please post results.
