This happens when the reset button inside is stuck. If the system is under warranty. Opening the case will void warranty. If it is out of warranty.... Open the cabinet and you can find a chunk of wires crowded in to a point on the motherboard. If you care fully inspect you will find a pair of pin (jumper pin) marked "RESET". If there is some obstacle that is shorting the contact, remove it and offcourse clean the dust particles or other material that could cause trouble. This should solve the problem

IBM Netvista desktop bios problem

First of all if you re formatted the drive You have lost ALL of the information on that drive. Next you don't need to go through BIOS in order to boot from a disk. You can press F8 on the screen that you would normally enter BIOS with.

Hope This Helps

IBM Netvista powers up for only 3 seconds

if you have to wait some minutes to restart it, that is overheating...try putting a ventilator (the bigger the better, the thing here is give lots of air to the processor > CPU) and see how its working...
