    So updated my bios a few days ago and i now get this screen on start up. At the bottom i notice it says "cmos fail". What does that mean and how do i fix it? My computer boots and runs perfectly fine with no problems so i really haven't been too worried about it but just wondering if it is something to worry about or is it a quick fix? Thanks.

    Yes my time and date are correct. I updated because i was having some problems with my front usb ports and i read that updating might fix it which so far seems like it might have.

    Reset your BIOS settings to either "Default" or "Optimal". Reboot.
