Last night I shut down my PC as usual, and this morning I found I couldn't get it to start no matter what.
When running the initial checks (post I think it's called) it would constantly hang on ACPI Controller and refuse to move forward.
I tried restarting and going into BIOS, but when I got in there, I could not move through the options, i.e. the keyboard wouldn't react.
I then tried disconnecting both hard drives (SATA) and hooking up an old and known-to-be-working drive, but still it would hang on ACPI Controller.
I then tried reconnecting the SATA hard drives, one at a time, but still the same issue.
I then thought I would give resetting CMOS a try, which I did, and now each time I boot, it shows me the following message;
"CMOS Checksum error - Defaults loaded"
"F1 to continue Del to enter Setup"
If I press F1, it takes me through to the ACPI message and hangs. If I press Del, the screen goes blank and will not change.
My mobo is an Elitegroup KV2 Lite.
Any suggestions please, as I'm at an impasse!!
Many thanks in advance!
