I was working and suddenly FreeBSD freezes, I needed to hard reboot and 
when the BIOS post came two beeps appears with this message:

CMOS/GPNV checksum bad

Press F1 to enter setup
Press F2 to continue with default values..

What does that mean? I guess a hardware failure is coming up.

Kind regards,
