Answers :

Motherboard compromised , from my experience, is a setting that has been trigged in the BIOS on the motherboard (ie the memory chip that saves system settings like RAM speed etc).
The trigger was umm, triggered when the PC case door was opened.
There's probably a sensor under the case door like how a car alarm goes off if someone pops the hood.
This should be able to be reset from within the BIOS, so when you turn your PC on, press Delete, or F2 or whatever your BIOS toggle button is. (it usually tells you on the first screen you get when the PC is switched on.)
