Default New Biostar Motherboard

I just recently installed a K8M800-M7A motherboard. Everything seems to be working fine however when the PC is booting up it will stop at a screen that gives several options.
Press F8 to enter configuration mode
Press Del to enter setup
Press F1 to continue.

When a press F1 it will then continue to finish the boot sequence and everything is working fine after that. I can remember this happening awhile ago but canít remember what the solution was to fix it. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

If the PC's BIOS is setup as you want, press the "DEL" (Delete) key, and then save the configuration to the BIOS. Usually you can do this by pressing F10. If it does it again, it would most likely be a bad CMOS battery, that needs replaced.

It is most likely stopping on a device error. It can be anything from a missing floppy drive or with Biostars there's sometimes a memory error. If you can tell us what error you're getting then we can offer a solution.
