CMOS: battery low, wrong memory size
My dad brought an old computer to my flat hoping I could get it to work. At first when I turn it on it just said
CMOS Battery Low, but proceeded to try to boot from the hard drive, which apparently had a GRUB in MBR left back from the days the drive was actively used (with GNU/Linux). However since the keyboard wouldn't work no matter if I hook it up to an USB port or via the converter to a PS/2 port I thought I'll try to reset BIOS by clearing CMOS.
But after I did that I persistently started getting this, without even proceeding to the HD boot (basically I made it worse).

I even bought a new CMOS battery, same standard model, put it in but it still wouldn't work.
Ideas are appreciated. Would be nice to get this old compy to work. (It's an AMD Duron 750Mhz, 176 MB PC-100/133 RAM, 15GB HD).
