    My wife's puter at start up this am opened with the bios error that the CPU did not reach speed.
    All I did was reboot and it's working fine now....any reason this should have happened..solutions?

    Uh, we are gonna need some specs for this "puter." It could have been a one time thing that happened for no reason, or it could be the sign of an underlying problem.

    A BIOS update should probably fix it. :think:

    Sounds like the CMOS battery is dead or dying.

    replace the cmos battery. electronic retail stores like RadioShack and Circuit City may have the battery you need for your computer.
