It sounds like the coin-battery on your motherboard is bad so the motherboard forgets what time it is and what drives you have attached.

Replace the battery and you should be fine. It looks like a small coin on the motherboard.

The computer has not recognise hard drive


Remove internal battery for a couple of minutes and then replace to reset bios. You can also check settings by pressing f2 , or f4 i think, depending on your system, at boot up. Also maybe check all internal connections are secure with power off.

Computer will not boot


Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch On until you get the Safe Mode Option.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->Click 'System Restore'


A 'System Restore' window will appear.

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next


Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.


Note: It is better if you could remember from which date you are facing the issue, try to select a date prior to that date.


The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.


Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

After reboot your problem should be resolved.

HAVE A PACKARD BELL LAPTOP EASYNOTE F 5275 IT HAS CMOS PROBLEM IT CANNOT BOOT WITHOUT SETTING CLOCK AND DATE AND THERE IS NO ANYWHERE IN MOTHERBOARD I CAN SEE THE CMOS PLACE KIND ASSIST


try to boot and when it asks to set the time and date ..press F1 to go to the BIOS settings and in there save like it is with F10..and enter ..will start anyway and you will set the time in windows..
or ...go to bios directly by pressing F10 if it is a HP computer or ..F2 for any other laptop ..and in there on the time settings just set the time and the date from the arrows and enter ..
if you have other problems and you opened it ...you will have to remove the Bios battery to default it to the factory settings ..this will eliminate any passwords that might had kept you out of bios...if you do not see the battery ..remove the wireless card and see if it is under it ..

I got a used dell xps. 2005. got it from the trash. for real. i press the start button and the padlock light comes on. 5 seconds and the system shuts off. so, I need a password? or a code IE f2? I tried a...


just try to go to bios and reset it to the factory optimal defaults ..cause if it starts and shuts down so quick ...it is usually a problem with the CPU temperature protection ...so ..first open it and try to boot and see if the cpu cooler is starting ...if not ..this is the problem ...is it starts but still shuts down ..than it may have a temperature protection set in CMOS and it is set too low and it gets to that temp too soon and shuts down ..If you can not get to Bios cause it shuts down too quick ...than just remove the Bios battery foe a few sec ...This will do the job I described..and also get rid of the Bios password if it has one set..After that if you are lucky it will boot and ask you to go to Bios and set the time and date ..its a little tricky to do it from Bios but ..if you just press F10 it will save the changes like they are and after that set the date and time in windows...If it do not boots to windows..just reinstall the operation system ..Good Luck !..
and please do not vote me if you are not satisfied cause the vote affects my ratings ..and this is a pro bono question I answered to and I meant well anyway ..

Hello, how to install windows xp?

These steps are similar to other Windows OS installations (Vista, Windows 7).
Below is the detailed procedure of installing Microsoft Windows XP:
  • Before installing Windows XP or any other operating system, you should backup all your data. Data can be backed up on a separate partition, if the hard disk is partitioned or you can back it up on external storage devices like CDs or on a network.
  • Restart the computer and go to the Setup menu by pressing F2 and change the first boot device to CD, press Esc and save settings.
  • Insert the CD labeled Microsoft Windows XP into the computer and restart the computer.
  • When the pc restarts, a message will appear telling you to press any key to boot from CD, press a key immediately the message appears and the setup process will begin.
  • After the files have been loaded, Windows will start and it will give you an option of repairing using Recovery Console by pressing “R” or continue with setup by pressing “ENTER”; press enter to continue with setup.
  • Setup will list all your disk partitions, highlight the partition where you want to install Windows, this is mainly partition “C”, press “D” to delete the partition, then press “L” to confirm.
  • Highlight the partition you deleted, and then press “C” to create a new partition, press “ENTER” to create the partition.
  • Press “ENTER” again to install Windows on the New (Raw) Partition you have created.
  • Format the partition using NTFS file system.
  • After format has completed, Windows will restart and setup will prompt you to boot from CD again. Ignore the message and let setup continue automatically.
  • Follow the next steps which will ask you to setup the system Time and Date, Network and enter a serial key, until setup finishes.
  • After setup has finished, Windows will restart and will welcome you for the first time; Microsoft Windows XP will have successfully been installed on your computer.
