Windows 7: computer wouldn't wake (CPU was replaced error)

computer wouldn't wake (CPU was replaced error)

My computer wouldn't wake (sounded like it was running but the displays were black) I had to do a hard shutdown, unplug the PSU and restart it a couple times for it to work. When it finally booted I got an error message saying the CPU was replaced which it wasn't. I reset the BIOS, restarted, set Sleep to S3, and let the computer boot.
It's been working fine.
This sound like a CMOS battery issue?

Put a new battery in it. Had some weird stuff happen after I turned it back on. My displays were out of order on the Windows screen resolution page. I was getting certificate errors on some web pages but found out through google that my clock was wrong.

It's working, lets see if I see the same error (wake from sleep) as before.

Happened again yesterday. Had to hold the power button down a couple seconds to restart. I had to do this three times for it to start. When it did I had the CPU was replaced error. I reset the BIOS, and was able to boot into windows.

The computer is running when this happens. It seems that the video cards won't wake when the computer does. I did go into the BIOS and change "Init display" to PCIEx instead of PCI slot.

Looking at google now for other peoples experiences with this problem.

Hum maybe it is something to do with the cards Havoc seems to be the root of your problem.

Have you tried reseating the cards RAM sticks or anything that can be unplugged and then plugged in again?

Maybe it might be worth running a memtest too if you haven't already because it seems to be revolving around something not hanging on to a boot very well?

All you need to do is burn a bootable disk for memtest set the machine to boot from optical - it will boot into the test the OS is not involved and let it run. Now this can take some time and you need at least 7 passes it could be something simple like a bad stick or chip on a stick. Any errors will show up as reported errors.

Memtest download - http://www.memtest.org/

*Before you do that why not take all the sticks out then try a boot with each one individually 1, 2 and 3 if one does the problem then ok you have found the problem most likely if they are all good boot with two sticks in and then three and in different slots. I know this is tedious but quick. It just might be that the sticks are not matched together too well. Personally I like to buy them as sets of one two three or four.

Ok. I could start that tomorrow.
Why though is it giving me a "CPU was replaced error"? I recently put the computer back together (everything was disassembled). I also recently reseated all the memory (windows wasn't showing the total 12GB).

I hope this isn't related to a CPU/motherboard error.
