In some systems Users will face the problem every time while booting. Screen will appear to ask ‘Press F1 to continue‘ to finish boot process. This will come because of the CMOS battery dead or weak. So the user need to change the CMOS battery otherwise without changing the CMOS battery user can skip the screen ‘Press F1 to continue’ by changing the CMOS settings in System BIOS.
Press F1 to continue, DEL to enter SETUP
