If the BIOS loses its settings every time the computer is shut off or especially unplugged, it could be the battery that is on the motherboard has gone dead.Most PC motherboards have a lithium disk battery (CR-2032 or similar) inserted into a battery holder that is mounted on the board itself. The purpose of this battery is to hold the BIOS settings in what would otherwise be volatile memory (as opposed to flash memory, which can keep its data even when no power is applied).If this battery goes dead, the computer may complain of invalid BIOS settings every time you turn it on.Some computers (especially laptops) have a different shaped battery attached somewhere else to the motherboard, but the principal is the same. These batteries are relatively cheap, as computer parts go. Replace the battery, and you may fix your issue.

I forgot the BIOS password someone told me to remove battery and put it back but i cant find the battery


The BIOS Battery, to be precise CMOS battery looks like:

When your PC is turned off, your computer saves information about time, bios options and others with the help of CMOS battery. Try to remove it, wait a few minutes and set it back again. This action might cause to reset your BIOS password.

We cannot save the bios and can't restart


If you can't save the BIOS settings, then either your BIOS is corrupted or the battery supplying power to your BIOS is dead. The battery looks like a large watch battery on your motherboard. Try replacing that and see if it works then. If not you can either take it to a computer shop to have the BIOS flashed or replace the motherboard.

Under (setup utility) save settings are all disabled. need to able (restore settings) (load default settings) (save set- tings). in settings utility. my name is joe. can u help?


The bios shouldnt block you from saving unless it cant do it.

If this computer is more than 5 years old you may want to replace the bios battery on the motherboard and try saving your settings again.

Also, check with IBM on how to erase bios password if it has one.

Good luck and be careful.

Bios reset


As another option you could try resetting the jumper. Some boards save the password regardless unless the reset the BIOS by using the resetting jumper. Refer to the motherboard's manual for further information on how to do this.
