    what do u have in $content[cpu]??

    any way... selected should be in the option tag and not in the select tag...

    <select class="input" name="mod[cpu]">
    <option value=""> </option>
    <option value="1">1</option>
    <option value="2" selected>2</option>
    <option value="3">3</option>
    </select>

      This would require either saving the information in a Database and retrieving it on redisplaying the page or using a session.

      Either way the option list needs to be generated in say PHP where it inserts the selected field in the appropriate entry so it appears as the chosen field.

      Here's a little demo which just demonstrates the use of a form with a select box. It might help you, but it seems you need a little more understanding of what you are currently using in your script...

      I've included a PDF with some explanation and the demonstration script.
      Hope that helps!
