Thank you

Its asking you to Press "F1" key because may be its having a hardware problem, which should be checked or need to adjust the settings in BIOS. It also an indication to replace the CMOS battery.

Try this 1.
  • Go to your BIOS and load default settings. Also check the date and time in BIOS.
  • If you don't have a floppy drive then Disable the Floppy Mode option in BIOS.
  • Look for the option "Halt On" and set it to "No Error".
  • Save the settings and exit from BIOS.
  • If the problem still exits, change the CMOS battery --> Go to BIOS and load default settings --> Make sure to disable the floppy mode if you don't have a floppy drive --> Set the first boot device as "HDD" and save the settings and exit from BIOS.

Good Luck.
