Ok, I tried to do this on my phone so the url thing might not really be working.

Typically, Windows is automatically booted. But instead my bios comes up.

"please enter setup to recover bios settings. Press f1 to enter setup."

I hit f1.

Do no changes, and boot to Windows. I'm not sure if this happened after some windows update or what. I'm pretty certain I had no hardware changes.

And now, I always have to go through this screen in order to go to windows.

You don't bother confirming that the battery is dead or not....the things are dirt-cheap, and the indications from the boot halt point to the battery.

The troubleshooting process is: Replace the CMOS battery.

When the problem clears-up, you know that it was the battery.
