There should be more information. Is it saying there is no boot device? The amount of system memory has changed? When was the last time you were able to successfully boot the system?

"the it ask F1 to continue or F2 for system set-up."
this message usually means the cmos battery is dead. does it keep the correct time?

Most likely the motherboard battery is bad as Larry stated. If you press F1, will the system boot into Windows?

When it says press F1 to continue or DEL to enter setup, press the DEL and you will be shown a BIOS screen. in here you can navigate using the arrow keys on the keyboard. Find load defaults or load BIOS defaults, highlight this and press enter. Then press the F10 key on the keyboard and it will prompt you to save the settings press the “Y “key on the keyboard and hit enter your computer will restart. If the problem still persists then you will have to change the battery on your computer.

Prompt to press F1/F2 each time computer boots:

Have you been having this problem for 45 days? Or were you having it before you changed the battery? After it was changed, did you press F2, enter system setup, & correct the BIOS settings?
