Howdy kakeman69,
If I understand what you posted correctly, you are getting a message at startup suggesting you press F1 to access your BIOS. If you made some change in the way you "reassembled" your pc, or somehow caused changes that effect your BIOS, you will get a startup error and you will have to correct these to even boot up. In some BIOS I am familiar with, if you move through the different menus (using the arrow keys), your BIOS will in some form highlight (perhaps in red, where other words are in black) the area where the error exists. Search dilligently - the error could be in a submenu (accessed by hitting Enter or some key the instructions indicate). If you find this but cannot determine a solution, post what is displayed back here for further assistance.
