BIOS update CMOS error message....?

  1. Okay I recently tried to update my bios on a GA-K8NS mobo. I used the bios update program that gigabyte has so I am pretty sure that I installed the correct update. After the install the system restarted and then said CMOS error press F10 to continue or DEL to enter setup. I entered setup and flashed the bios to the original settings (I made a copy to a floppy before update). The system restarted fine with the old bios. What is this error and how do I fix it?
    Thanks

    SYS FAN SPEED problem

    OK....got the CMOS error fixed and BIOS is updated. I installed a hardware monitor that came with the mobo and it keeps saying "warning sys fan rpm."
    I looked at the fan speeds and they are:
    SYS FAN = 1739 RPM
    CPU FAN = 3750 RPM
    CPU temp = 40C
    I am new at all of this and do not know what to do. Does everything look alright? Is the program just screwed up? If there is something wrong how should I fix it?
    Thanks for all the help...

    Usually you can tell HW monitor programs what the "warning" and "fail" thresholds are. Look around in settings and tell it to warn about the system fan when it goes below 1500RPM.

    Ok..I understand that. Is 1739 RPM for the SYS fan bad though or is it perfectly normal?
