I recently upgraded to a new computer and I moved internals out and in and my old ones into a diff tower. now when i start up my old one with a different HD and more ram i cant get past the post screen cuase it gives me a message saying,

"The system was not correctly shut down and now working in safe mode speed, please press "del" to bios setup table to set correct CPU speed."

I can manage to startup the system by reseting the CMOS and starting up. this way it gives me a message saying the default settings where set in the bios and it lets me continue with startup by pressing F1. Whenever i have to restart the computer though I have to reset teh CMOS again.

I really have no idea why this is happening. i cant reach my normal CPU speed no mater what setting i try and it just stays at 1200mhz and gives me that message.

I have tried remounting the heat sink on the processor and reapplying the thermal paste, ive tried running without IDE to see how far i can get, single ram sticks, no ram, no PCI devices hooked up, and even switching the FSB from default to the 200mhz setting and still nothing..

only once by unhooking the IDEs i was able to get the computer to pass post but only at 1200mhz and be able to restart as long as i didnt try to change the bios settings.

While looking at my Mobo manual i have noticed that i seem to be missing the "Boot virus detection" option in my bios which is shown in the manual. I dont supose i have some sort of BIOS virus or something?

Correct speed is 12x166~2.0GHz.

The memory should run at the same speed (1:1 or 100%) as well.
