When I boot up my machine My Bios sticks. When Press delete to enter setup it just sticks in the same place. Any advice would be great.

After memory test I hear one beep then it hangs.

Something not happy with a setting. Try resetting BIOS to defaults...then set them up again, apply changes (like auto detect new IDE devices, approve and keep changes), see what happens.

Reset CMOS ?

Or, if you can get into the BIOS setup, choose "reset safe settings" ?

Good luck.
