Maximum processor supported: Intel Pentium® 4 processors or Intel Celeron processors up to 3.06 GHz (with Hyper Threading) at a system bus speed of 800/533/400 MHz.
Yours is too fast for the motherboard, replace it with an older weaker one.

SOURCE: how do i make my supermicro X6DAL-B2 motherboard more compatable with windows 7?

Sounds like you need to go to the manufactures website and download the latest drivers. I would do this for the motherboard and any equipment plugged into it (soundcard, graphics adapter, monitor, printer). Update everything. Then you might also trying cleaning up things. For example: how full is the recycle bin? When was the last time you defragged the harddrive? How much stuff do you have running in the background? Is windows up to date? When was the last virus/malware scan done and is the software upto date? All these things should be looked at.

Hope this helps

When I startup my pc I have to press F1 before it starts . I am running windows xp home


This has nothing to do with windows, but is a cmos or bios issue. There should be an error something like, Time incorrect press F1 to continue or F2 to enter setup. Check the error and then press the correct key to enter setup. If the issue is the time, fix the time and date in set up. Most other issues will clear when you exit and save set up.

If you would like more information, please provide the exact wording of the error that you are pressing F1 to continue from.

Hi names Rui,


For your problem the computer may display a prompt to press F1/F2 or any other key to enter setup each time the computer boots as a reminder on how to enter CMOS. However, if the computer asks to press F1/F2 (or another key) to enter setup and does not continue, this may be caused by any of the below reasons.

  1. New hardware has been recently installed.
  2. Error or confliction with settings in CMOS.
  3. CMOS battery is bad or failing.
Solution:

New hardware has been recently installed

If new hardware has been recently installed into the computer, it is likely that you are receiving the prompt "Press F1 or F2 to enter setup" because CMOS needs to verify that the new detected hardware is properly being setup in CMOS. Enter CMOS setup and save the settings and exit. If you continue to get errors continue to the next step.


Error or confliction with settings in CMOS

If no new hardware has been added or you continue to get this prompt verify no error or conflictions exist in CMOS. Press the key to enter setup and verify that all settings are correct.

If your time and date are not set correctly, your battery is more than likely bad. Try setting the correct time and date, save the settings and then reboot. If after turning off the computer the time and date get reset again replace the battery.

If the time and date are correct and everything else appears to be correct try resetting the CMOS values to the defaults.


CMOS battery is bad or failing

If you continue to receive the prompt to enter setup each time the computer boots up and you have attempted to follow the above suggestions, your CMOS battery is bad. We recommended that the CMOS battery be replaced.


hope this will help you.

Just replacing the battery will not set anything. You have to do the setting of the values. If you can run setup by pressing F1, then do that and set all the settings and then save before exiting. Make sure you save the settings by choosing the correct exit and re-boot option.
If the settings cannot be set nor saved, then make sure the poser is off or pull the plug from the wall outlet, then short the bios with the jumper to short the bios. This will reset the bios to the default settings. Turn on the system and then go to the bios settings and set the settings. Then use the reboot option to save the settings.

Cmos


You need to press F1 and go into the BIOS to setup and detect everything. You will need to set the date, verify it detects your hard drive and memory, and enable/disable items as you need for your system.

Once it looks good, do a Save and Exit.

Hi, and welcome to FixYa
The computer may display a prompt to press F1/F2 or any other key to enter setup each time the computer boots as a reminder on how to enter CMOS. However, if the computer asks to press F1/F2 (or another key) to enter setup and does not continue, this issue can be caused by any of the below possibilities.
1. New hardware has been recently installed.
2. Error or confliction with settings in CMOS.
3. CMOS battery is bad or failing.
Solution:
New hardware has been recently installed
If new hardware has been recently installed into the computer, it is likely that you are receiving the prompt "Press F1 or F2 to enter setup" because CMOS needs to verify that the new detected hardware is properly being setup in CMOS.

Error or confliction with settings in CMOS
If no new hardware has been added to the computer or the new hardware has been removed and you continue to receive the error, it is likely that there is an error or confliction with the CMOS. Press the key requested to enter setup and verify that all settings are correct. If everything appears to be correct try resetting the CMOS values to the defaults and/or Reset Configuration Data. Additional information about how to do this can be found on document CH000976.
If all settings appear to be correct, save changes and exit CMOS setup. If the error continues to appear, enter setup again and restore all CMOS values to default.
· See our CMOS page for additional help and information with the CMOS.
· Additional information about getting into the CMOS / BIOS setup can be found on document CH000192.
CMOS battery is bad or failing
If you continue to receive the prompt to enter setup each time the computer boots up and you have attempted to follow the above suggestions, it is also possible that the CMOS battery may be bad or failing. Generally; when this occurs, the computer is not holding the time or date correctly. If this is occurring it is recommended that the CMOS battery be replaced.

Bios checksum error. How to solve it?


If you are using an old computer, there’s a possibility that you already encountered this error message during bootup; “CMOS checksum error – Defaults loaded”. At this point, the PC will halt its operation and requires you to press F1 to continue or DEL to enter setup (mostly but also depends on motherboard) to proceed.

This is caused by incorrect or corrupted CMOS values. BIOS settings are stored in CMOS. Each time the system is booted this number is recomputed and checked against the stored value. If they do not match, the error message will be displayed.

For most cases, this is caused by the motherboard battery. Buy a new one to any electronic retailers in your area and replace it. Turn on your computer and press the stated key to enter the BIOS setup. It can be DEL for some or F2 but this depends on your computer. On the BIOS menu, try to change the DATE and TIME settings because their values are reset to different value. Most settings are set to default so leave it as it is. Save the settings and reboot your computer.
