    Exclamation Please select CPU speed


    Hi,
    I have 256MB RAM and P3-500MHz...
    Whenever I boot my computer it gives me an error "Please select your CPU speed.Press any key to continue"...Once I press any key it goes into setup and then I have to exit it everytime I boot my PC...
    Why doesn't it start normally without going into setup?

    Thanks
    Rohit

    Sounds like the cmos battery might be dead, or you have a jumper set wrong. If you haven't changed anything on your own, its probably the battery. Try a new one (its the round silver one on the mobo, get the same type and replace it).

    The battery is dead or weak....Next time that happens check the system time... if its wrong that is also a good indication that the battery is worn....

    Do you have a jumper to clear the CMOS? If so, make sure its in the right position.
