This is a message that you would get if you incorrectly set or overclocked your processor in your BIOS. If you overclocked your system it is giving you a second chance to try again. If you changed processors without resetting to defaults first. Assuming your processor is supported by your board, the first step is the same, go into your BIOS and choose 'Reset to Optimal Defaults' if available, or 'Reset to Defaults' if not, save changes and exit if it does not do this automatically and let the system boot to windows. Right click on My Computer (or Computer) and choose properties and see if you processor reads correctly. If it reads correctly and you were not overclocking, you are done. If you are not getting the correct speed on your processor, you will need to go into your BIOS and reset it manually to get the speed correct. If you are overclocking, open CPU-Z and check your details, read up on what you may have done to create this situation to better understand overclocking and post your detailed system specs and your first attempts.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

"I don't know what this means or how to fix"

Apparently someone overclocked the CPU, if it wasn't you, then who was it? You need to enter the BIOS & undo what was done.
