CMOS settings error during boot up.

Good morning to everyone. Why am I see CMOS settings error, press DEL to enter setup, press F1 to continue during boot up on everyday? Besides that, the CPU making loud sound during boot up and also when I am using my computer on everyday, I am not sure whether the fans or the HDD is the culprit.

Go into BIOS (DEL) and load defaults (either first screen or exit menu). Open the case and stop the fans with your finger for a second or two and see if the sound cuts.

Thanks GokAy, after I choose 'load default settings' on BIOS, the CPU fans making less noisy sound just now. Anyway, do you mind to teach me how to remove the CMOS battery correctly and safely? Because the CMOS error used to appeared four years ago and this is the second times it happened.

Load defaults is same as CMOS reset. You remove the battery and reset that way when PC doesn't boot and can't get in BIOS. You load defaults if you can get into BIOS.

Search in Google for : "how to CMOS reset youtube" plenty to watch, better than me trying to describe, please note it may be somewhat different depending on your motherboard. Best is to read the motherboard manual that came with it or download from motherboard support site.

Just to make sure, did the sound disappear totally (return to normal) after loading defaults or tuned down a little?

I am appreciated your explanation, very useful. The sound of my CPU fans returned to normal like the first time I bought my computer.

CMOS Error
My secondary rig keeps showing a CMOS error on boot, but only if it has been shutdown. On a restart or at desktop, there is no problem, and SpeedFan shows the Vbat at 3.10v, which is normally sufficient to indicate that the battery is okay. If I understand, the PS provides current to maintain...
