What message do you get? Is it a Dell by chance?

Yes this could be caused by a number of reasons, have you recently modified the hardware? Added or removed a hdd or ram. Sometimes computers will have a warning message that pops up if the case was previously opened etc. Without the error message that comes up it could be a million things.

Please post the error message and we can help you better.

I have a Dell Latitude D610 that displays a message upon boot that the power adapter cannot be verified, or something in the ballpark. What it means is that the power adapter's signal didn't get through to the notebook to verify that it's a genuine Dell part. Is this the message you're receiving? If so, I have a workaround, but the only solution is to replace your adapter.

the message refers tin most cases to a change detected by the bios
it can be caused by a low battery too; it should read 3 V; or replace it CR2032 model

actually, that computer has been formated when I was on holidays and now user doesn't need to press F1 now. So I don't have idea what can re-solve this F1 issue.
