The sudden shutdown scrambled the CMOS setup.

Reset up the correct Bios settings and see if the machine will reboot normally.

Find out the cause of the machine shut down ( loose cables, heat, etc... )

Is this an oem (branded) or a custom built computer? motherboard model is usually printed on the motherboard, you have to open the case to see this.

As to the BIOS error, your BIOS is probably corrupt and Bootblock is trying BIOS recovery and looking for a way to reflash your corrupted BIOS. After you have identified your motherboard manufacturer, download the latest BIOS and follow the manufacturer's guide on BIOS recovery

subane,

The Best thing to do is Download and Read the Manual.

It will tell how to flash the Bios.

May be somebody where you live can help you with the procedure in the Manual.
