    When my PC boots, it gives the following error message
    "CPU is unworkable or has been changed. Please re-check"
    "F1 to continue of DEL to enter setup"

    If I press F1 the system boots normally but with default bios

    If I enter the correct settings the computer hangs. The fans and
    drives work but the screen stays blank.

    Would a dead bios battery give these symptoms?

    email address is fake. Sorry if this appears twice.
