Warning! Cpu has been changed.

When i start up my computer,  a troublesome message will display on the boot up screen says

"   CMOS checksum error - Default loaded.
Warning! CPU has been change.
Please re-enter CPU setting in teh coms setup and rember to save before quit!"

Press F1 to continue, DEL to enter setup.

If i press F1, it will go to the windows.
If i press DEL, it will bring me to the setup menu. The problem is there is no CPU setting in the CMOS setup Utility. What should i do?

How old is the computer?

I suggest changing the CMOS battery and then entering CMOS and saving the settings.

Then see what happens.

This is actually not a problem, if you choose to save settings and exit.  See if it asks you again after rebooting.

The battery could have been sitting on a shelf for years.  Try one that you know works.

Your overclocking settings is too high. Lower it a little bit, and you'll not get that error often.

i had the same problem on an ASUS mobo - never found a solution, even after mailing with ASUS.
The problem went away after a fresh install.

You can also try a BIOS upgrade though

GinEricCommented:
The special operators of the cpu detected a change in the power supply.  Hope you have some nVidia drivers to probe the new setup.  Reinstall any motherboard drivers.

Try setting the FSB/RAM speed and ratio manually instead of auto in bios.

I've seen similar with what I'll call "motherboard monitoring".  Dig around in the BIOS and see if there is something that monitors your hardware configuration etc...then disable it.
