    Override could mean the system cannot boot using the current CMOS configuration, the BIOS can override the current configuration with a set of BIOS defaults designed for the most stable, minimal-performance system operations.

    How old is your PC? As the CMOS battery maybe dying which could have caused this problem. You most likely will have to enter Setup and reset all the options.

    But as a test, will the PC boot with a Windows Startup diskette?

    P.S. Welcome to TSG.
