The specification of my desktop computer is as
Processor: AMD FX-8320, Motherboard: ASUS M5A97, RAM: 16GB Kingston HyperX Fury, HD: 1TB WD Black and SMPS: CoolerMaster 650W
Due to some issue, the processor was replaced by the AMD. After installing the new processor (FX-8320), I see the error message as following:
New CPU installed! Please enter setup to configure your system. Press F1 to Run SETUP
After pressing F1, I press F8 for Boot Menu, then I select P3:WDC.. (Hard Drive)
Then Windows login screen appears. I saved booting priority by F10. However, after every restart, I need to follow these steps after pressing F1.
I replaced onboard 3V battery and discussed with ASUS also. I have gone through all possible troubleshooting steps with the guidance of Asus. Also I selected default loading but issue not resolved.
At the end, Asus says, this issue is because of motherboard so disable Wait for 'F1' If Error and continue to use.
I know disabling Wait for 'F1' If Error is not the solution of this problem. It is just ignoring the error message so please let me know, if I ignore the error message, is there any possibility of further hardware issue in motherboard, processor, RAM or hard drive?
And if I continue by ignoring this error message, is there precaution so that the possibility of further hardware issue in the motherboard and processor would be less?
