errm. if u have changed the cmos battery... i had suggest you to take the computer to a computer dude... coz it might be a bad motherboard.

Get ur RAM checked for the slow booting prob. And see if there are any viruses/worms on the PC.As for the error message, I think its a case of BIOS corruption. Try to reflash the BIOS with the current version from the mainboard website. The 1.13GHz Tualatin CPUs are a constant source of harassment though ! :angry:

lol . If u have tried changing the battery and u still get error than it is bcoz ur jumper settingss are surely wrong .. Check ur motherboard guide .. or look for a small jumper just nearby the battery .. it will be covering 2 pins out of 3 .. just pick it up and if it is covering first two pins out of 3 .. then put it again so that it covers second and third pin or vice-versa ..

i think the crucial point is whether someone messed with the motherboard before the problem started occuring. :)

Someone messing around with the mobo is not impossible though.Consolidate our views and do the needful...:D

he managed to change the cmos battery by himself. i guess he will manage the jumper things as well :)
