    Hello

    This computer needed to have it's battery changed. So I did. The following info showed up: 'Your system configuration has changed since last boot (addition of HD, etc.) or a case of power loss to Real Time clock.Real Time clock will lose power if the Onboard battery is not functioning properly. Press F1 will record new configuration'.

    Please let me know how to proceed.

    Thank you.

    What happened when you pressed the F1 key?

    Was this a button battery (CMOS) or the other larger rechargeable battery?

    Seems to be a desktop PC so it must be the Cmos battery.

    Just press F1 and select the 'load defaults' or similarly worded option.
    You may have to set the date and time also.

    Followed instructions and pressed F1. Got the following as I proceeded. > Windows Error Recovery. > Launch Startup.> Setup repair is checking for system problems.> System restore attempting repair. > Windows cannot repair this computer.

    It is a 3v Button Battery

    F1 should have taken you into the Bios if you had the same screen message in your first post when you pressed it.

    Look at the screen after switching the computer on, it should show which key to press to get into the Bios, then in the Bios select Default settings, enter the correct date and time if necessary and save and exit.

    If you still get Windows Error Recovery etc that is a separate problem.

    A miracle occurred.

    I was about to do as suggested, but as I turned on the computer, the screen flashed up, 'Starting Windows, and proceeded to boot up as normal. All I needed to do was to set the clock.

    Thank you.

    Glad to know it's working now.
