Re: can not save to bios
Windows and the bios needs to know that the operating system can be shut down through windows, so when you go into the F2 or Del on boot up, go into advanced cmos setings and look for ACPI and make sure it is enabled.
This sets the motherboard to support shutdown.
Save and exit settings and reboot.
Now go to control panel>performance and maintanance>power options and set the correct instruction for shutdown to shut the pc down.
Remember evertime you remove the cmos battery or reset with jumpers you have to reset date and time and anything else you have changed to suit your set up

First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty. Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.
If you are trying to install Windows XP then - The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP.The FIX.Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.http://www.fixya.com/support/r4335035-installing_windows_xp_sata_hard_drive
fit the graphic card to your pci-e port of the mother board on bootup press F2 to edit the CMOS/BIOS options and disable the VGA graphics or noboard graphics there ENABLE PCIE graphics. save the settings boot to windows upon boot install new drivers for PCI-E card restart the pc
Check the cable between your monitor and computer. If this is a new install and you have added a graphics card, you will need to boot up once using the on-board VGA. Doing so will allow you to turn off the on-board VGA in the BIOS. Then you can shut down and move the monitor cable to the new graphics card and reboot.
go into systen bios and set the default leave it there for a good duration doing notheing. see if the machine dies if not save the setting and reinstall using the Boot from CD.
DO not Boot from HD
try a different CD drive unit too.
According your problem it seems to be your try to install faulty Network card. So better is check with new good card.another possibility is some time pci slots fail to recognise a hardware, so try it with another pci slots of mother board.According to you onboard network card is dead, means motherboard fails to work when connect to a network,after successfull installation of network card also the possibility of motheboard not allow you to work with new network card ,same situation may arise,i am also managed same problems in several customer place while working as an computer hardware engineer.So try with new network card it may solve your problem
try repeatadely pressing delete on startup with the monitor cable attached to your onboard graphics socket but keep the new graphics card in. then you should go into the bios. change the graphics setting to your graphics car and then save and reboot. it should now work from your new graphics card
When you rightclick on MY COMPUTER then choose MANAGE, in the device manager, do you have another display controller appearing?
if so, then you only have to install the drivers you've got with your new card, then in DISPLAY from the control panel, you will have to go to the SETTINGS tab and lightly move the second diplay then it will ask you if you want to activate it.
if there is no other display controller in the DEVICE MANAGER you should try to reboot and access the bios in witch you will found an option for selecting the first display controller to be used.
so, choose PCI, and save, then reboot.
wireless card enabled in BIOS is only telling the machine there is a wireless card other than what was buildin on the mother board.
The wireless will not work without the driver. I don't think you need to worry about the wireless when you installing the XP operting system.
first download the wirelss drive and store it on a CD of other media.
once you have finished the installation. You can install the driver for the wireless, then goto HP.com and download the drivers as you needed them.
My suggestion is install XP as fresh installation, it is much easier and faster, if you don't have any thing on the machine you need to save.
the change you made is fine, the machine should boot up from the CD. it may not happen the first time,but it will the second time.
