    I really need some help guys. I was trying to use DosFlash and I turn my computer of and back on and it can't get past the Motherboard's Logo Screen, which is the first thing. I've messed with it for like 2 hours. Anyone have any clue what is wrong?

    did you make sure ou unplugged you computer from power when you unplugged harddrive if you did?
    what type of harddrive was it?
    if you have drive utilities for it, try to restore the boot sector in a different computer. also go to the bios and make sure your comp recognizes it. and the you dont have a ****ed up ide cable.

    can you get to the bios?

    reset your CMOS.

    I can't get to the BIOS or choose what I boot to. Normally from that screen I can but it doesn't do anything when I press F8/F12.

    Like Gambler said, Reset your CMOS which it can be found here: [Click here to view the link]

    most likely a corrupt bios or something.

    it's one of 2 things, your PC's ground was shorted and your PC was owned.
    OR
    reset your cmos
