    Re: cmos setting wrong

    If the battery has failed and has been replaced, you will have lost settings

    Try going into setup and using a "default settings" option, then see if you still get an error when rebooting. If you dont, go back and customise settings.
    If you still get an error, the problem is deeper than lost settings.

    Did anything else happen yesterday that might have upset the BIOS?

        Yes, I understood you had replaced the battery.

        If the battery had run out, you will have lost earlier settings. Thats why I suggested using a "default settings" option to see if new settings saved.

            This will work. This is a common occurence when you do anything from Replacing your battery, or just taking it out, to Flashing your bios.
            Just change your settings to the default like Ossian said and it should work.
            If it dosn't, something is seriouslly wrong lol.
