Computer boots to BIOS screen

Recently my wife's computer started booting up to the BIOS screen with a message that the CPU speed was wrong (it wasn't) or the memory speed was wrong (it wasn't). The time was not being maintained. I replaced the motherboard battery but that didn't help. It seems unlikely that the recently purchased battery is bad or that it is improperly seated (it is held in place with a clip). Any other suggestions.

Re: computer boots to BIOS screen

Did you try loading the defaults in the BIOS? make sure that you save the changes while exiting BIOS.

-You might also need to install any updates of BIOS on this particular motherboard (going to the manufacturer website of the motherboard will be helpful).
Let me know please.
Hope that helped!

You have to wipe bios to make it boot set bios upturn have to wipe bios again to start up again.

This indicates you have something set wrong in the bios. Check your clock speed and match it to your cpu.

Freeze after post

intel boards wont start the os after they finish post if the memory or cpu are running at the wrong speed or voltage. SInce most boards nowadays are auto sensing you may have the wrong memory/cpu combo. Also you may have zapped any of the components if they were not installed in an ESD (electro static discharge) environment.

Cant access advanced bios settings

to access the Bios Configuration Setup, On Any PC.
Depending On The Bios Manufacturer i.e Pheonix-AMI et,c.
You press F2 Or Delete Or Esc At The Initial System Boot-Up.
Power On. Press One of the designated Buttons immediately, after starting the computer.this should access the Computers Advanced Bios Settings.
** Please note:- Altering any settings in the bios, can cause undesireable effects to your computer**
Even failure To Start, Or Boot-Up.
From my own personnal experience, it is better to underclock a cpu rather than overclock it.
If a CPU Is designed To Run At a certain speed, running it above it,s designated speed cycle, can damage either the CPU Itself, the Memory Or Motherboard.
Probably wiser, to upgrade The CPU rather Than Overclock It.

Problem with my BIOS CMOS Setting

Its due to your default CMOS setup does not match with your CPU configuration especially with CPU speed.
  1. To fixed the above problem goto BIOS and navigate settings of CPU, speed etc. Set the speed with the proper value as per manual. And save the settings.
  2. Infuture when you will load default, at that time also set the CPU settings.
  • The CMOS battery might not be connected properly or may be its not producing enough power as per needed by board. So have a look with another battery. Also clean the connection point of the CMOS battery.

Good Luck

Hi, I have to agree "...that the motherboard's bios doesn't recognize the processor and that I should upgrade the bios...". Though I think that this is only a display issue and not necessarily true CPU speed. You can check if the correct CPU is displayed inside Windows by right click on My Computer and details would be shown in the System Properties. To upgrade the BIOS: 1. Determine/log your current BIOS and its date by pressing Pause on initial boot when motherboard details are shown; 2. Continue booting by pressing escape and run your Windows normally. Go to the website of your motherboard manufacturer and verify if they have an updated BIOS (compare date of release). If an updated BIOS is available, download. Likewise download the flashing utility. Further instructions are also available on a step by step procedure. Some newer mb versions/models have a Window based update feature. Check if you have such. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
