Two things come to mind first. Number one would be making sure you have the most up to date bios. Number two would be that maybe the motherboard battery is dying/dead and isn't holding enough charge to after being shut down to save the option you selected.
first thing to do is unplug the machine, hold the power button in for 20 sec. after unplugging it, then remove the disc battery you should see in the mother board, keep it out for 60 sec. then replace it plug it back in nad reboot it. lets start from there and get back with me and please don't forget to rank this solution and if I can be of any other help let me know. Have a wonderfull day and thank you for using fixya.com
did you go into the new bios and check to make sure you have the hard drive setting on auto, then check your boot order that the drive is first to boot., if that doesnt work create a floppy boot disk (google it) and see if you see the hard drive when you do that.
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
