- RF-ID tag has changed

can remember). I turn it on only occasionally - maybe once every 2-3
When I turned it on today, I got the following message:
The RF-ID tag has changed.
184 Asset control antenna not detected.
The system has been tampered with.
Turn power to your system off and then on.
Your system is now locked.
I turned the power off and then back on again and it booted up
normally. I did the work I needed to do with no problems. I then shut
the unit down and re-started it. Again, no problems.
So, what the heck was that all about???
Was this a legitimate message? Is there really some kind of an RF-ID
tag inside this thing? What do I need to fix or replace before it
really does die?
I did some Google searching but didn't come up with much. One thing
said something about replacing the CMOS battery. A couple of others
said the mother board would need to be replaced. I would think on a
computer this old that wouldn't be very feasible.
I'd like to keep this thing going for a few more years - again, just
for occasional use.
