Having an Intermittent Issue.  Usually seems to happen after a Normal Shut-Down, but have it happen on a Restart, and Wake-up from Sleep Mode.

Here's what My BIOS Post screen shows:

----------------------------------------------

Award Modular BIOS v6.00PC

Processor: AMD Phenom II x4 955 Processor 

<CPUID: 00100F43 Patch ID: 00AF>

 

"This System has Experienced Boot Failures because of Overclocking" 

 

Current CPU Speed: 16.0 x 200MHz

Current Memory Speed: 1333MHz

Current HT Speed: 2000MHz

----------------------------------------------

at this point I hit DEL and go to PC HEALTH and enable Reset.

I could hit F9: Express2 Recovery (Just never have)

I have never Overclocked this system as Long as I have had it.

So, what is causing this, and How to make it Stop ??

BIOS warnings (e.g BIOS checksum error, or maybe the one you are seeing) on systems of a certain age could be caused by a flat BIOS battery.  That would be my hunch anyway.  Commonly they use CR2032 batteries, and a failure should be expected anytime after about 4-5 years.

So, what is the procedure for changing that?

It hasn't been 4-5 Years since I built this system in 2012

You just need to locate and change the battery on the motherboard.  They are normally held in by a small spring clip, which you release and then slide the battery out.

 

The battery is circled below:

4-5 years is a guess from my own experience, but a battery could certainly go after 3 years.  I think it is worth doing anyway, as this message is essentially the motherboard telling you that its restored default settings.  The clock losing time is another sign.
