Hi :thumbsup:.

System manufacturer and model?

Version of Windows installed?

Recent changes to system?

Offhand...that message should appear onscreen under various circumstances.

It could indicate that your CMOS battery is weak, it could indicate that your hard drive has gone bad...it could be other things.

What happens if you press F2? Is the hard drive reflected in the BIOS screens?
