Question about EliteGroup K8M800-M2 Motherboard
You may have something failing in the POST (Power On Self Test). Typically, they'll just hang, or even reboot, if that's the case, but... you never know. I'm guessing that if you save and exit from BIOS, it reboots, and sends you right back into Setup again.
Start by removing or swapping out things. First, I'd do the DDRAM chips (if you can). Reseat them, and be sure they're inserted properly. Once you're in BIOS again, check to see if the amount of RAM reported matches what you have installed.
Next, if you have a video card, take it out, and switch the BIOS to use the onboard video. Also, remove any other add-on cards you have.
If none of that fixes the problem, you can find the jumper on the motherboard (should be near the battery), and set it to clear CMOS. Follow the instructions in your manual on how to do this. Once that is completed, try restarting.
Let me know how it goes.
