Try this. Right out of the manual. The reset button is the little pin hole next to the power. Will need a paper clip that is straightened.
Entering the BIOS Setup
BIOS (Basic Input and Output System) stores system hardware
settings that are needed for system startup in the PC.
In normal circumstances, the default BIOS settings apply to most
conditions to ensure optimal performance. Do not change the
default BIOS settings except in the following circumstances:
An error message appears on the screen during the system
bootup and requests you to run the BIOS Setup.
You have installed a new system component that requires further
BIOS settings or update.
Inappropriate BIOS settings may result to instability
or boot failure. We strongly recommend that you change the BIOS
settings only with the help of a trained service personnel.
Quickly enter the BIOS
Windows8 boot time is quite fast, so we developed the following
three ways for you to quickly access the BIOS:
Before booting up the system, insert a straightened paper clip
into the BIOS Reset key.
BIOS Reset key

Hi, you need to change your primary boot device, try pressing the F1 key during bootup, this will take you to the BIOS screen, from here you can change your primary boot device from HD to CD, save your changes, reboot, selecting boot from CD when it appears during bootup. Hope this helps
Hi, you can perform a system restore by accessing safe mode by pressing the ESC button during bootup. Restore system to a time before the problem began. You will need to perform a full virus scan straight after normal bootup is achieved. Hope this helps
If you attempt to install a piece of hardware or software on your PC computer that is incompatible with your system, you may see a blue screen with a C000021a fatal error warning. The easiest way to recover the Windows operating system from this type of error is to restore your computer to a previously working state. 1.Press the "F8" key on your keyboard when prompted during the boot process.
2.Use the up-and-down arrow keys to highlight the "Last Known Good Configuration" option. Then hit "Enter.
3.Use the up-and-down arrow keys to highlight the operating system version that you wish to boot up to, and then hit "Enter" again. The system will now restart to the last working version of your operating system, which will eliminate the C000021a fatal error.
Hope this helps
this is only a warning of computer bios., this usually happens if you overclock, or a power failure during POST of bios.. Just press the Restore/Default Setttings.. I think its F2 in some boards, itwill just reset the settings, it should be fine
Have you installed or attached any Software /Device since then.
Please unlug any device attached and then try. Also try tapping F8 key during bootup.
Check BIOS with F2, DEL or ESC key during Bootup.
Best of Luck & Regards
