CMOS Date and Time Not Set
Explanation: The system BIOS has detected that the date and time stored in the CMOS memory were never set up, or set to an unacceptable value.
Diagnosis: This is normal upon booting many new motherboards for the first time. If this occurs with an existing system it usually means that the CMOS memory has been corrupted or cleared in some manner.
Recommendation: For a new system, enter the BIOS setup and make sure to set the date and time. Double-check the other BIOS settings for accuracy, and save the settings and then exit. Upon the next reboot, the problem should go away. For an existing system, if this problem persists, troubleshoot as a corrupted CMOS problem.
