Start your machine and select the option to go to the BIOS settings.

Look for something like 'Load Default (or safe) settings' and select it.

Press the F10 key and let the computer resume its boot process. With luck the problem will be resolved.

When you changed the BIOS battery, it lost the BIOS settings including the CPU speed
