    I just swapped out the CMOS battery on my Dell Optiplex GX-1 PC, running
    Windows XP/P3/256 megs of RAM. After I reset the date in the CMOS, I
    rebooted, and got the following message on the screen right after POST:

    "Alert! Cover was previously removed."

    I've seen this before on other Dell PCs, but I've never questioned it - but
    because it's happening to me now, I'm curious as to its origins.

    Is this the end result of changing CMOS batteries, because I never saw it
    before I did it. And is there any way to keep it from coming up?
