My computer lately has started displaying this message before it goes to boot up it tells me "press f1 to resume" then after pressing F1 goes to BIOS. I just have to press escape and accept no changes then it proceeds to nomral booting up to Windows XP. I do not know where the problem lies in here on BIOS or on Windows? Can anyone exlpain or help me sort this thing out.

This happenes when BIOS encounters an error like CMOS battery failure or Keyboard not attached etc. The error message is shown just before "Press F1 to continue". What error is reported when BIOS stops?

Here is a typical error, look the error is shown (Keyboard error) before the message "Press F1 to continue" :

Please tell us the make and model of your PC.

Possible reason may be CMOS battery failure. Have you made any changes to BIOS recently? Have you added new hardware recently?

I see the last time I had change something from my CMOS was when i tried installing Ubuntu in my pc it failed back then so I resorted going back to my XP OS only.

My mother board is an ECS 945GCT-M2/1333 iNTEL 945GC+ICH7.

BIOS settings may have changed somehow, you may want to change BIOS settings to default by going into BIOS.

I already loaded the default setting everytime I press F1 but then when I reboot same thing happens.

Thanks for that advice I will try to look for that one myself and see if this would solve the problem.
