PC. In the top left hand screen it shows 256MB ok. The it shows the follwing
162-System options not set
The following configuration options were automatcially updated:
Disk 1: 40.0 [GB], Disk 3: CD-ROM, Disk 4: CD-ROM
Total Memory installed: 262144 Kbytes
CMOS System invalid, Default values loaded
Pauses for about 10 seconds then just resets itself and repeats the above.
I don't know what was done prior to this happening because it is a friends
computer and she doesn't know.
If it is the CMOS Battery - then would it cause any problems if I change it,
e.g. files stored on the hard drive etc.
