  1. Hi,
    I have replaced the battery and still get this message . I hit F1 to continue and nothing. Just stops. No HDD activity. If I hit DEL to enter setup, the same.
    I have a soltek sl75drv mobo, athlon xp1900 cpu, 512ddr ram, ti4200 graphics.
    I had reset bios to optimized defaults and rebooted, and it has been like this since. The only other prob was a wrong date issue. Wassup? This machine has been going fine for several years, and has had no recent hardware changes/upgrades.

    Hi

    Sounds like something I once saw on a HP RP5000, it was a corrupted BIOS chip and had to be replaced...

    That is normal,, hit DEL ,, go into BIOS ,, and save settings and exit,

    you should be fine,

    Thanks for your help. It turned out to be a cpu problem.
    The guy had modded an xp1700 to an xp1900. Now it is back as original, all the probs have gone.(at least for now).
