It will assist helpers here if you include details of the programme you were using and also what you were trying to achieve while you were using it. Is your computer a lap top or a desk top and are you using a wireless keyboard and mouse. Both these items need battery replacement from time to time.

The onboard battery is probably the cmos battery. The cmos holds the user-supplied bios settings.

Are you in bios setup when you get the 'press F1 to save changes' message? Do other keys respond? If not, how do you continue the boot process?

Are you using a USB or PS/2 keyboard?
