    :( What does it mean when the screen that comes up before windows xp comes up... the black screen that tells you about your system comes up with a message like this

    CMOS settings wrong
    CMOS memory size wrong

    What does this mean? How did it get this way cause I never made changes, and how can i make adjustments. When I hit F1 to enter set up it brings me to the standard CMOS set up. The date is January 21, 2003. I seem unable to change the date. On exit and continuing on to windows and opening up to my section, the clock is wrong as well as the date... it also reads January 2005. Can someone help me make the appropriate changes to my computer CMOS?

    Sounds like your battery is getting weak. Pick up a new one and put it in. Take the old one with you so you get the right one. After you put it in go into the bios check your settings, then exit and save. Suggest you go into bios and write down the settings before you remove the battery

    I went in before receiving this message and changed the dates.... by reading closer how to do so and the messages that came before are no longer there.... I did review a post not refurring specifically to this question but very simular.... i will be taking my system back to the place where it was custom made. For being a system practically new... i think the warrantee will cover things nicely ... ty for your speedy responce.... :)
