hello guys....

I've been experiencing this problem for the last 2 to 3 days... when I power on from main switch it automatically starts without pressing the start button. After that it shows a screen which shows "press F4 to run setup" and when I press F4 it takes me to BIOS from where i have to change the boot device priority every time. Is it due to some virus on my system??... What is this... Iam confused.. any help from ur side would be appreciated.....

Naveen

I'd start by replacing the battery on the motherboard.

You're not going to damage anything, but the bios will keep resetting and the system time will be wrong.

NOTE: The battery itself is very inexpensive and VERY easy to change, if that's what's worrying you.
