Possible Bios Problem.

  Sparkly 23 Jun 11

Had an email this morning from an old friend saying he had a problem with his desktop, the message on the screen reads, RV370SE /N 113-AA31000-100-PC.BIOS 113-PC5000-04 He cannot log on at all. Do you think the PC has come to the end of its working life? I have searched on google for the message but not had any luck, could anyone suggest what to do. Thanks. Windows XP SP3.
