What is the exact make and model of your system?
Can you access the system's BIOS?
Does it detect your hard drive?
Do you have the Windows installation CD?

I would replace the CMOS battery.

I believe that 1962 refers to the current CMOS clock setting...I think this happened to me once :thumbsup:.
