Hello :hello: 

my computer starts to act ugly on me... the other day it just shut down itself, tried to turn it back on but still was turning itself off right after i turned the power button on. I've waited until today turned it back on and got this message right at the bios start screen: Warning! Now system is in safe mode. Please reset CPU or Memory frequency in the CMOS setup.

Anyone has any ideas?

My computer Specs:

Intel Core 2 Quad 6700 2.66 GHZ
MOBO: Nforce 790i ultra
xfx gtx 280
OCZ 1000 watt

Try resetting the CMOS:
-turn off the computer
-unplug it
-open case
-find a "watch battery" on the motherboard
-remove it
-wait like 10 seconds in case there are any capacitors
-put it back in
-close your case
-plug computer back in
-try booting up.
