    I have an HP XW6000 that is getting this error when I try to go into
    the BIOS. Then it does the F1 to Save Changes - and I hit that. It
    reboots, I briefly see the post screen and then nothing. Black screen,
    no activity. This machine has one 36gb SCSI drive. I would be happy
    to provide any other information if someone was willing to help me.

    Did you try changing the CMOS battery?

    Replaced the CMOS battery - nothing
    Swapped video cards - nothing
    Swapped Hard Drive - nothing
    Swapped Memory - nothing

    I think it's the MB.

    Will it let you flash the BIOS?
