I turned on my computer today and instead of loading everything like usual, it gets stuck where you can press delete to access BIOS. It only shows these lines:

CMOS Settings Wrong
CMOS Date/Time Not Set
Press F1 to Run SETUP
Press F2 to load default values and continue.

What should I do? F2?
F1 gets me to BIOS, but I don't know what to do there. Is F2 a safe thing to do ?

Thank you for answering me!

If this topic is in the wrong category, you can just redirect it, thank you.

F2 is perfectly safe. most likey what happened is that your CMOS was cleared somehow, to get that error to go away just go into your bios and reset the date and time.

EDIT: oh if you use F2 your time in windows will be wrong as it uses the bios time, that can cause errors with HTTPS on the net. other then that no big.

I configured the date in the bios by pressing F1, and I have access to my computer now. Many thanks to you fatsoferret, this really helped me!

Have a nice day!
