My System

Some way or another, during the boot phase, my system got the idea that I installed a new CPU; I most certainly did not.

I received this screen just before the Windows logo appeared.
I chose the second option because I didn't want to break anything.

That probably turned out to be a wise decision.
I am able to use my computer normally for the time being.

Has anyone ever experienced this particular phenomenon?
If so, do you know of any causes or solutions (if it turns out to be a problem)? Bear in mind, I don't do anything rambunctious with my computer.

I play games (without overclocking), code, and pretty much do anything else that normal people do (except when I do that one thing I use a VPN and thoroughly purify my temporary browser files afterwards), so I don't think it's a virus.

BIOS is American Megatrends Inc. 1005, 8/24/2010; if that helps.

Here's a pic of the message I got:

OS: windows 10 Pro 64bit

It could be the cmos battery dying as the bios date is over 8 years old, have you tried updating the bios or overclocking the cpu?

As this could have damaged the bios

1 check replace cmos battery
2 check for bios updates.
3 check the date is set correct when you boot into bios settings
4 check the psu and replace if needed.
