If you want to contact Mesh via PCA, try [email protected]

You can try that e-mail address but you might have to wait a while. I e-mailed them over three weeks ago and still haven't had a reply...

Same old Mesh, I fear...

It *sounds* like the CPU and/or clock ratio, voltage settings etc in BIOS are either corrupt or incorrect - hence the test on boot up and the "new" processor (speed) message.

This is why Mesh probably mentioned changing the CMOS (BIOS) battery in thinking it was failing.

Your BIOS settings should be reset to default, which is easy enough, although it sounds like the BIOS is corrupt in some way.

Wait and see what they say when you ring them as it is still under warranty.

should not need a new CMOS battery.

It does sound as if the BIOS has gone haywire somehow, and the solution of a BIOS flash disk is a sensible start.

When you get the disk, boot the machine with the floppy in the drive. Whatever you do, make sure that you do nothing to the machine whilst the BIOS is being flashed - don't touch anything, and ensure that under no circumstances is the power supply turned off, or you'll have a computer that won't start.

>>should not need a new CMOS battery<<<

Technically speaking no, but its not always necessarily the case, FE.

Although the majority of batteries last more than a couple of years, I have had, on occasion, a completely new motherboard, that I have ordered for a build, arrive with dead battery.

It has only happened twice though, but a CMOS battery can go at any time.

Echo sentiments re flashing the machine - be careful - it can be a little daunting, especially if you have not done it before.
