Your recommendations will be appreciated. Thank you...

    On the motherboard you may have a conector for an external CMOS battery. It would be a 2 or 4 pin connector near the rear of the motherboard. Check your manual. These run about a dollar and use 4 AA batteries..

It is best to take it to a local computer repair shop. That would be safest. Shouldnt be too expensive to repair.

    You can also enter your zip code in the box marked "Repair Service" at the right panel. That should throw up a number of repair services in your area. Just mention that you were referred by Fixya and you just might get a discount :)

Bios setting could not be stored in d865gsa after removing the power cable

Replace the CMOS battery, usually it's a CR2032 in a holder near the bottom front of the motherboard.

Replace bios battery

FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.

Relieve your body of Static BEFORE, reaching inside your unplugged from power, computer.

Computer on a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open;
TOUCH an unpainted surface of the metal frame, of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.

IF, you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again, upon your return.

Motherboard installed in computer case, the CMOS battery, (BIOS battery), is located at the Bottom/Right corner; above the four Red SATA connectors.

The CMOS Battery holder has a lock clip on one side.
This clip is eased to the Outside edge, in order to release the CR2032 CMOS Battery. (A type of watch battery)

Suggest use a stiff plastic object to release lock clip.
Most however, use a small Jewelers flat tipped screwdriver.

You want to JUST press on the Lock Clip itself.

The battery should just pop-up a little. Then a fingernail is used to lift that side up, to access the battery.

When reinstalling remember the Positive ( + ) side ALWAYS goes UP.

After locking the new battery in, make sure no cables were accidentally pulled loose.
Also just for ease of mind, try to push the Ram Memory module/s in ('Stick') more. Make sure the Locks on both ends are locked in place.

A lot of times the Ram Memory modules get bumped loose, accidentally.

Close the computer case. Plug computer back into power.
WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Go to the taskbar at the bottom of the Windows screen, and to the right.
-> Right-click on the Time.
Now reset the Date/Time to what it should be.
Need guidance on that post back in a Comment.

Need cmos battery info

CMOS battery is a CR2032 (3V) button-style lithium battery. They are available practically anywhere and are inexpensive. The battery is located near the Southbridge Chipset in a clip-style battery holder. Use a small screwdriver to gently lift the battery out of the holder and replace it with the new one. Do this with the unit powered off, of course

Try changing the CMOS battery.

Go to any half decent supermarket or electronics store and ask for a CR2032 coin cell battery.

open your computer case and find the exact same battery somewhere on the motherboard and change/swap them over. There should be a silver retainer clip holding the battery in to its housing, release this clip and insert new battery.

Cmos problem: always reset cmos everytime unplug the power cord , but as long as it unplug, it wont reset. change the battery, recheck every cord, reset cmos, check jumper position as manual, done but...

A coin-cell battery (CR2032) usually powers the real-time clock and CMOS memory. The battery is 3 Volts, 3/4" in diameter and has an estimated life of three years. When the computer is plugged in, the standby current from the power supply extends the life of the battery.
Just open the desktop, locate the CMOS (Coincell) and remove using screw driver. Replace the battery with CR2032 or an equivalent one.The following brands are used interchangeably for this item: Energizer (ECR2032), Duracell, Panasonic, Eveready, and 3M etc, which can be purchased from any local electronics store.

Dont forget to appreciate the solution if I could have been of any help!

Check cmos error

Read this only if you are sure that you have replaced the correct type of battery & you have set the jumpers to the default locations.

It is not the problem with the battery or the charging problem (Actualy CMOS battery is not Recharable ) most cases.

The problem is the battery holder in mainboard where we put the battery IN. eventualy or accidently these Pins from the Battery Holder are made loose or not contacted with the battery.i had the same problem and the solution was to adjust the Battery holder to seat the battery in proper way.
