Reoccurring F1 F2 screen
Why when turning on the pc after a shut down I get a reoccurring F1 F2 screen, from there I do a ctrl-alt-delete, and she'll load up just fine, this doesn't happen on a restart.
Puzzled?The tasks ahead of us, is never so great, as the power behind us.

A dead giveaway is if your time/date settings have reverted to defaults (look at the time/date shown by the clock in the bottom-right of your taskbar). If the time/date shown is wrong then you most likely have a dead motherboard battery.
The battery is usually a 3.0v CR2032 lithium battery which you should be able to buy for a dollar-or-three at your local newsagents or grocery store.
After you fit a new battery you will need to log into your PC's BIOS/UEFI and update the settings, particularly time/date.Computer Consultant/Technician since 1998 (first PC was Atari 1040STE in 1988).
