about 2 or 3 weeks ago i upgraded my cpu to phenom ii x4 955 and everything was working fine until the other day when i bought a new case and put all the parts in it now when i turn on the computer it just sits at the motherboard screen saying press f1 to run setup f2 to load default settings to get it to boot to windows i have to hit f1 then just do save and exit and usually it boots up fine after but its starting to get annoying doing it everytime anyone know what the problem is

Werner123 is right.

Go to the bios and reset it with default settings.

when i first got the message i loaded the default settings it booted up fine but the next morning i turned it on it was still displaying the same message i heard something about the cmos battery could be the problem and seen a suggestion about leaving the computer on for 24 hours and sometimes it recharges the battery so ill try that out

Those batteries are available at most major supermarkets in the US, if you live there. They sometimes list them as "medical" batteries, so they may be near the pharmacy. I remember buying one from a PC shop for $10, thats too much they should be $3-4 a piece.
