Can anyone help please.
On bootup i am now receiving a message as follows;

Checksum Error
CMOS Battery failed
Press F1 to Continue.

O.K So i press the F1 and then the computer proceeds to load as normal.
However i have found out that after this i cannot access the internet,so i came across a way around it for NOW that is (dont know how long it will work haha!!)
I now leave the computer running for about 15 to 20 minutes then i Restart NOT Reboot and walla!!! i can then access the internet???
The BIG question is however how do i overcome all this work around.
By the way the clock on the computer is still keeping spot on time???
Well heres hoping that someone out there will have some insight into this delimma. Thanks to all and whoever comes up with a real solution.
