Are you facing 'PRESS F1 TO CONTINUE' while you start your computer everytime?

Here is the solution to rectify it.

On some computers you will observe the following message when you ON those computers.

CMOS Checksum Error - Defaults Loaded
Press F1 To Continue, DEL To Enter Setup

The above message comes due to three reasons.
1. Due to faulty CMOS Settings.

2. When a new Hardware Component is installed in system then there may be settings for this new Hardware in CMOS. In this case also we face Press F1 To Continue.

We will also face this message when an existing Hardware component is removed from the computer.

The solution for the above two cases is just set the CMOS Settings to Default. Then save those settings and restart the computer. Your problem will be solved.

Still you are facing the same problem then the last reason is this one.

3. CMOS battery is Weak or Fail.

Just replace the battery with new one. Then you won't get message Press F1 To Continue now.

In Win XP Systems when battery is weak you will face BOOT DISK FAILURE problem also. You have to replace the old battery with new one only.
