Did you look and see if there was a flash upgrade available for your bios?

It can be caused by numerous things.

Tell us the details about your system.

Download and run Everest Home Edition. By the way, it is freeware.

Everest Home Edition (the successor of AIDA32) is a system information and benchmarking tool with full hardware & software information available as freeware for the individual user. It comes with a built-in hardware database and physical information for CPU, motherboard, hard disks, optical drives, chipset and much more.

Download here:

or here:

It will tell you everything about your system - all software and hardware. It will tell you what the temperatures are for your hard drive, memory and processor and what processor you have. It will tell you if the fans are running and what speed they are running at.

What operating system do you have, Win XP?
