I tried to find how old that model is but had no luck; this message may mean that the CMOS backup battery, normally a small 'coin' cell, needs replacement. That message says that it can't remember who and what it is and that happens when the battery is depleted. Check you user guide about replacement of that battery; it should be a DIY job. The battery will cost <$10 US even if you stumble across a crook selling them. Wholesale, they are about 20-30 cents.

SOURCE: no booting

This error means your bios is corrupt. The first step is to replace the CR2032 battery inside the computer. Upon reboot choose fail safe settings in the bios. The bios can usually be accessed with either F2, F9, F11, or the delete key.

If this does not solve your problem then you are left with options to listen to it until windows boots or replace your motherboard.

1. Remove all battery packs.
2. Disconnect the AC power.
3. Remove the real-time clock battery.
4. Wait thirty minutes.
5. Reconnect the AC power. DO NOT INSTALL THE BATTERY!

When i am start my hp pavilion this shows Bootmgr is missing alt+cntr+del to restart again it same cycle


1. Error: BOOTMGR is missing:

The following error opens when attempting to start the PC:


??¢ If you recently installed an additional hard drive, turn off the computer and remove the drive before using the following steps:

??¢ Open HP System Recovery:

??¢ CAUTION: Do not perform a system recovery! Stop at the first recovery screen.

- Press the F11 key repeatedly while the computer is starting.

- If you have a recovery disc, turn on the PC and insert the first recovery disc into the drive. Use the disc to enter the system recovery.

??¢ Select Microsoft Startup Repair tool and wait for repair to find and fix errors. When finished, restart the computer; even if the startup repair tool finds errors but cannot fix them.

??¢ If the error message persists, open the recovery manager screen as was done in step 1.

??¢ At the recovery manager screen, press ALT + D.

??¢ Enter the following text at the command prompt: bootrec /rebuildbcd

??¢ If bootrec displays "Add installation to boot list?", press y .

??¢ After bootrec completes successfully, the computer displays "The operation completed successfully".

??¢ To close the command prompt, enter the following text: exit

??¢ At the Recovery Manager screen, select Microsoft Startup Repair tool (again) and wait for startup repair to find and fix errors. When finished, restart the computer.

??¢ The error should no longer open. If it does, perform a system recovery, making sure to backup important files.

??¢ If you removed a hard drive before using these steps, replace the drive. If the error occurs again, make sure the additional hard drive is not set as an active drive. Only the main bootable drive should be set as active.

Hello. I want to ask. I have a Acer Aspire 9300 and I have a problem with it. When I try to turn it on it only ignites the green light and the computer does nothing and does not make any sound. What could...


First, make sure it is fully charged and plugged in.
Look at the power indicator:
If it is not lit, no power is being supplied to the computer. Check the
following:
If you are using on the battery, it may be low and unable to power
the computer. Connect the AC adapter to recharge the battery pack.
Make sure that the AC adapter is properly plugged into the computer
and to the power outlet.
If it is lit, check the following:
Is a non-bootable (non-system) disk in the external USB floppy drive?
Remove or replace it with a system disk and press <Ctrl> + <Alt> +
<Del> to restart the system.
Nothing appears on the screen.
The computer's power management system automatically blanks the screen to
save power. Press any key to turn the display back on.
If pressing a key does not turn the display back on, three things might be
the cause:
The brightness level might be too low. Press <Fn> + <→> (increase) to
adjust the brightness level.
The display device might be set to an external monitor. Press the display
toggle hotkey <Fn> + <F5> to toggle the display back to the computer.
If the Sleep indicator is lit, the computer is in Sleep mode. Press and release
the power button to resume.

162-System Options Not Set; 163-Time & Date Not Set


The bios settings are being lost during offtime. This is due to the cmos battery being dead. Most units have a round 3-volt lithium battery in a clip/holder. A few use a rechargeable battery that recovers if the unit sees frequent use. Can you verify the model number of this unit?

My laptop compaq armada1700 ask me power-on password what can i do?


Follow the instructions of the service manual for the Armada 1700 (you need to have some skills):

2.2 Clearing Passwords
The power-on password prevents use of the computer until the password is entered. The setup password prevents unauthorized changes to Computer Setup. To clear the passwords, you must remove all power from the system board. If you do not know the passwords, use the following procedure to clear the password:

1. Remove all battery packs from the battery bay and MultiBay, if applicable.
2. Disconnect the AC power.
3. Remove the real-time clock battery.
4. Wait five minutes.
5. Reconnect the AC power.
6. Restart the computer. During Power-On Self Test (POST, a "162 System Options not set" message appears.
7. Shut down the computer, then disconnect AC power again.
8. Replace the real-time clock battery.
9. Install the battery pack(s).
10.Proceed with the troubleshooting procedures.

Point 10 means you need to do the setup via disquette to set the date and time again, to avoid the "162 system option not set" message of the POST.

Forgot BIOS password.


1.) Unplug AC, take out the main battery.

2.) Take out /disconnect the RTC (real time clock) battery for app. half an hour (the period of 5 min as specified in the MSG normally is not long enough).

3.) Plug in the AC adapter (batteries still removed); computer should boot automatically, if not use the power button.

4.) The machine will boot and show the 162-error-msg "system options not set". Use F1 to save the settings.

5.) Shut down the computer and disconnect AC power again.
6.) Re-connect the RTC-battery.
7.) Install the battery pack(s).
8.) Restart the computer.

Caveat: All settings are set back to factory standard.
You'll have to enter a correct date/time and change the settings to your needs.

Note: pls strictly keep to the sequence.
Re-starting with the main battery and or RTC-battery inserted will spoil the job.
