Auto BIOS Reset Problem

I got a problem in my Compaq Presario V3000 Laptop, my BIOS gets reset every time when I start my computer and it goes to its default configuration. I checked the CMOS battery and found it is OK giving 3.09V. Can anyone tell me what's the problem and suggest me what to do. Thanks in advance.

A 2032 Lithium battery isn't expensive, so humor us and put a fresh one in as I believe it's the battery. Just because it meters 3.09V cold doesn't mean it's holding up to the load/draw (A = current) in circuit.
Let us know how it goes and good luck.

You might want to replace the battery just to check if it is not really the one broken, since some batteries report erroneous values, especially old ones.

Hi sir,

probably your motherboard has a problem, not the battery, try to update your BIOS, you can find that in Compaq's website. go to downlosads or support page, enter your model number and it gives your all the drivers asa well as new BIOS update..run the bios update with instructions in it and restart your pc.

Dvd drive is not reading in my computer on compaq pressario v3000 notebook


Try re-seating the DVD drive so it makes proper connection to the motherboard, then go into the BIOA setting to see if the DVD drive is detected. If the DVD drive is not detected in the BIOS then most likely the DVD drive is faulty and needs replacing.

When Booting My Compaq Presario 2100 It Goes To A Black Screen And Ask Enter Drivelock Password .Ihave Not Used Any Passwords .Can't Get Pass This ,Any Ideas? Richard


Try entering your "Setup" or "BIOS" and find the area for "Security". From there you should be able to change the password that it has on it. If your "Setup" or "BIOS" has a password on it and you don't know it, then it is likely that your laptop is worthless to you now. Unlike desktop computers that usually have a BIOS or CMOS reset on the motherboard, laptops seldom have this option. If your's has a RESET on it then it will likely be a little pin-hole on the bottom of the laptop that says RESET next to it.

Hardisk not detect.


First Make sure the hard drive power connector and ribbon cable are connected.
Swap the hard drive.
if id doesnt wrk then..
Go to the BIOS setup, and under the Integrated Peripherals menu, make sure that ‘On Board HDC’ is enabled for both Primary and Secondary channels. Also ensure that all drive types are set to AUTO under the Standard CMOS Setting. If you are not comfortable with changing the BIOS values, just reset the BIOS to factory defaults.
Hope this helps
keep me updated
Thanks for using Fixya
Have a nice day!
