Take off the side panel of the tower and look at the main board. the cmos battery looks kinda like a quarter. it has a tab that needs to be pressed with something like a small screwdriver. make sure you do not install the new one upside down

Your BIOS settings are not corrupted. The CMOS cell is not memorizing your settings after you reboot it. So you must change the CMOS battery. My humble request to buy a qualitative CMOS battery so that battery can work as guarantee. Thanks for using FixYa.

MY Gateway GT4016 Will not start anymore, i first replaced the power Suply and nothing happened. the fan runs and a light blinks then it shuts down again, i used to start it by just pressing the button and...


Make sure all fans are running power supply one to hehe Maybe a bad power button? I had a gateway that did some thing very close to that because the cpu fan was not turning and a hp that did that because the power supply fan was not turning. Thats where I would start then make sure the mem is seated good and not bad you know the drill ;) if you replaced the power supply with a factory replacment it should be a voltage or wattage problem. Might also try a hard boot the power plug take the cmos bat out hold the power button down for 20 or 30 secs some people say to leave the cmos bat out and try to fire it up. I know that works on some laptops but I always had better luck putting it back in for desktops cant hurt to try it. If you have two ram sticks in it pull the # 2 one and try to fire it up if nothing changes swap the # 2 one with # 1 leaveing slot 2 open and try it that will tell ya if it is a bad ram stick I dunno just my two cents hope it helps

Remove the Thinkpad main battery. Look for a small yellow disk. This is the CMOS battery. It is connected to the motherboard with two (2) wires that plug into the motherboard. The plug is included on the wires of a new battery. Check EBay for Thinkpad CMOS batteries. I have also heard Radio Shack in some cases carries this battery.

CMOS BATTERY


Gateway 450ROG CMOS BatterySmall internal battery that maintains calendar and clock settings.

PLEASE NOTE: This is not the battery that powers your laptop; it only maintains certain internal settings. If you need a main battery, please refer to the page on our web site for your laptop model.

CMOS batteries are located on the motherboard; if you are not comfortable with the inner workings of your laptop, you may want to consider having the battery installed by a qualified technician.

Here is the link to their site for your cmos battery
