Well it seems like that the cmos battery is down. You need to do the following
Change the CMOS battery,
Enter into bios and change the date and time properly,
Save and exit bios.
Now you should be able start your computer in windows.

I'm not familiar with that particulat model, but I'd guess the motherboard has a chassis switch connector, and senses the chassis be open. Could be because: - chassis open (close it), - switch defect (as a workaround, you could short-circuit it, or just unplug it - whichever solution works for you). As another workaround, you can probably disable this switch in BIOS.

you need to go into the bios of your pc.....usually pressing the delete key when you see the first logo screen after booting up....look for a section that relates to errors and what the bios is supposed to do when it encounters an error.
i.e if you see a line in the bios that says "halt on all errors" disable it and when you next boot up the bios will not stall.

Same thing on my newish dell xps laptop. Did a lil googling, and found some similar answers. It usually happens after installing new hardware drivers, mostly nic cards (ethernet network, internet wi-fi). The most popular suggestion is to remove previously installed drivers and if possible find updated drivers and install those. Some suggest to go as far as installing ALL of your current drivers, but I don't think that is really necessary. You could probably just go back to your last working restore point (IF you have one) and work from there. Good luck and I hope this helps. DRUMMERGIRL
