Go into the BIOS set it to the defaults then reconfigure the settings then save them. What did you do for that message to appear?

this is before i can even get into the bios. i was playing gta san andreas and the screen went into standby mode, it basicly froze. i powered i pressed the restart button. that did nothing. i powered the pc off. i waited a few seconds. i turned it back on and now i get this. i just recently replaced the cmos battery a few weeks back as i have mentioned in another thread.

So, this is the power supply that previously, was in
the PC that had BIOS issues as well?
Might be a coincidence...
Do you have access to a known good power supply?
I suppose not if your plan is to buy one...

One cause of BIOS corruption is a bad power supply.
