On one of my home systems which is about 4 years old and has a AMD Athalon 1800+ processor, it was working fine and well until tonight when I started it up, got the regular startup beep, and all of a sudden constant, fast beeping which automatically popped up my SETUP and I saw the following message

During the last boot-up, your system hung for an improper CPU Speed setting. Your system is now in Safe Mode. To optimize your system performance and reliability, make sure the CPU speed conforms to the specifications of your CPU.

If I press the ENTER key during startup, I can get to the Windows XP loading screen where the bar freezes.

Is my computer SCREWED?!?!?!?!

Please help
