I get the "New CPU Installed! Please Enter Setup..." Message coming up

  1. I get The "New CPU Installed! Please enter SETUP to configure your system." Message.

    Hey Guys, haven't posted here in a while. Basically I have had this problem for a very long time now, every time I turn the computer On I get the message

    > New CPU Installed! Please enter SETUP to configure your system.
    > Press F1 to Run Setup
    > Press F2 to load default values and continue

    My computer works fine, its just annoying to have to press F2 all the time.
    This started happening when I re-attached my whole motherboard onto a new case about a month ago. Everything works fine, but I get that message every time I boot up the computer, and have to press F2 all the time.
    I googled this matter, but there wasn't really anyone who had had the same problem as me. What do you guys think? My motherboard is a P4P800.

    Try clearing your cmos, your mobo manual will tell you how!!!!

    Nope, that does not seem to be working. I switched the CMOS Jumpers from position 1-2 to 2-3 for 10 seconds like the manual told me, plugged the cord back in, booted up but still the same problem..

    By all means try flashing the bios.

    However, having just googled your problem, it seems this is a common problem with some Asus mobo`s. Maybe the mobo is faulty.

    Regards Howard :)
