Question about Biostar K8M800-M7A Motherboard
Built a system with this mobo for a friend back in February. It is currently freezing on the mobo splash screen. If I press Delete to enter the BIOS setup, it says "Entering Setup..." and freezes. I was able to boot successfully to the OS once, and then successfully rebooted using a boot CD to make a backup of the boot device because of other problems she's been having. The freezing started for me, after I made the backup and rebooted, but she says it's been happening quite frequently before I got there.
It is clear that the system is showing hardware problems. Motherboard should be the cause... it is a recent motherboard so it may have a warranty supprot. I suggest that you should replace the motherboard if problems persists [and if warranty applies]. Hint; If the board is out of warranty... try replacing the CMOS battery.

You have i would say a corrupt bios, if it can't even select the splash screen, i'm assuming that you have tried to reset the cmos by means of the relevant jumpers, either JBAT1, CLRCMOS or CLRCLK or similair. If so and still nothing, when you built the system you may have stressed the board fitting the heatsink and fan or the memory causing the mobo bios chip to fault or it is simply a manufacturer fault and therefore up for exchange of faulty goods.
