CMOS information invalid

Explanation: The BIOS has detected that one or more of the setting parameters it has read from the CMOS memory is invalid.

Diagnosis: If this occurs in an existing system, it generally means that the contents of the CMOS memory have become corrupted. It is normal to get an error of this sort when you boot some kinds of new motherboards for the first time, since they have never been set up before.

Recommendation: For a new system, enter BIOS setup and make sure to set and save parameters. Then reboot, and the problem should go away. For an existing system, troubleshoot as a corrupted CMOS problem.
