  1. Hello. :)

    I did not have this problem until I updated my BiOS some time ago. Now I have updated my BiOS again and again, but the message won't disappear.

    Here's a CPU identification repotr:
    Let me know if you need to know what else hardware I have.

    The BIOS don't normally require any updating except possibly after a major change to your system.

    I think my CPU is supported by my motherboard. As for the clearing of the CMOS, I tried that before, but not after I updated my BiOS the last time. Ill try it and see if it helps.

    @ Tedster: I already know how to update my BiOS, I used EZ FLash 2.
