Here's an intermittent PC problem that was reported recently.

Fairly frequently (may be 2x in last 3 months), this PC when it is booted 
at the start of the business day, will beep and indicate that the CPU speed 
may be wrong. It then opens the SETUP program requiring confirmation of the 
CPU speed. After confirming the speed the machine boots up fine and works 
without a problem. The date and time seems fine.

The machine is a noname Pentium III 1GHz with 256MB RAM, ASUS motherboard 
with Award BIOS.

Do you have any ideas as to what could cause the problem and how it could 
be fixed?
