I scanned with antivirus it shows no virus found.
I don't know what to do please help me guys.
Have you updated the BIOS on the motherboard? I would suggest that if you do this first if the motherboard is not with the latest BIOS. If you would need assistance with this procedure, let me know what is the current BIOS on the board and I will explain how to flash the BIOS.
The BIOS version would be the number after the 86A. BEH611OH.86A.0016.2011.0118.1128,
0016 was the first BIOS that came with this board.
You need to flash the BIOS using the http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-023358.htm iFlash BIOS Update.
You need to download the .BIO file, found here: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/search?keyword=DH61WW https://downloadcenter.intel.com/search?keyword=DH61WW
Beware not to flash the latest BIOS on the first try, it is critical that you do not skip an update; you need to go in this order:
Also note that you can't roll back the BIOS version once you flash to version 0041 than the same with version 0099.
