If it is a computer and not a laptop could it be telling you to replace the CMOS battery. Are you having problems keeping the correct time and date if so it will be the CMOS needing replaced.

Thanks, it is a desktop computor, and the dates and times are all ok.

Replace the CMOS battery - its a small button battery usually C2032 on the motherboard. cheap to replace and easy to do.
