Does the screen have more info or just that one line?

This can happen if the CMOS battery needs replacing.

Did that fix it? If not, have you installed any new hardware recently? If not you may have to reset your cmos.

This indicates a battery problem. Are you sure you put the new battery in the right way round? if you did best try another battery. You need to get this right firstIMHO.
