I am receiving the above message followed by "Enter Power SET UP menu for details"

at the opening screen it allows mne to enter F1 to continue or del to enter bios.

Can anyone advise what I should be looking for?

Is this happening as soon as you boot your system, before you get to Windows?

It's possible that your system is overheating (going by a quick google). Get an inventory of your system click here and something to monitor temperatures click here, post back your results.

Hi, switch of everything, then open case and clean out all the accumulated dust and fluff, especially around the CPU and its Fan, and any other fans in your pc. Then re-start.

PS ... make sure you touch a metal part of your case before 'going inside' - this is to release static in your body before it can damage any components.

brundle's right it is related to overheating, CPU is more that likely the culprit if it hasn't been housekept for a while it could be a build up of dust between the vanes of the heatsink....

It could be a fan failure

It could be a PSU failure

It it's straight away from a cold switch-on it might be overheating on the processor - but unlikely so quickly.

Press the Del key, as it says - this will put you into the BIOS.

Look for the Power Setup - or maybe System Health check section. Use the arrow keys on the keyboard, and the enter key, to move around and enter menu sections.

You may spot what's wrong from the values given - eg CPU fan - a speed of 0 would be wrong.

Also look at the voltages - one of them may be out of tolerance with what it should be - if so change the PSU.
