CMOS battery getting hot.. bad jumper setting... help!!

I have messed up with jumper settings. The computer is booting fine but most of the times, it is showing CMOS battery low. I replaced the battery but the problem was not solved. The CMOS battery is getting hot... Might be due to some jumper setting, the battery is getting short-circuited. Please help me locate.. which jumper to manipulate???

    I manipulated the BIOS jumper settings. Literally I do not have any jumpers for BIOS settings. The system says the CMOS battery is low and each time I have to enter the time and date.

How do I fix my CMOS Battery Low error so I can correct the Time and Date since it's stuck on the 01/01/2004 date and won't save in my BIOS?


This is usually a very short and sweet step to complete.
After you have changed the CMOS battery over to a new one all you should have to do is go into BIOS set the date, the time and the year. Save the settings in the BIOS, exit and restart the computer.
You have to set the date, time and year in the BIOS first then change it on the desktop.

The proper battery to use for CMOS is a C2023 coin cell battery.

Hope this helps

P4P800 - VM BIOS Version 1012 to Upgrade 1018 Now CMOS can't save Date & Time


I'm sorry to have to say this but your CMOS battery connection is bad. There is basically nothing you can do other than replace the whole motherboard if it is too much of a problem.

One of my many computers is like this as well. I'm lucky in that as long as I leave that computer plugged in (it doesn't need to be turned on just plugged in), the CMOS won't reset its self. If you aren't that lucky then I would seek out a replacement motherboard.

I 4got my password.


When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log in if you cant log in

during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there

also

The most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased.

Sir, I have Intel D485PEBT2 mother board.Whenever I do a cold start it does not boot.If I do CNTL+ALT+DEL it restart and boots.cmos battery is ok.date and time ok.I tried several times to change Boot...


Hi,

I would suggest that you do a factory reset on your mobo. To do it, here are the steps you can follow.

1. make sure that computer is OFF and unplugged from the wall
2. locate the 3-pin jumper on the mobo that is near the cmos battery
3. once located, remove the cmos battery
4. then from the 3-pin jumper, if the jumper is connected to pins 1-2, switch it over to pins 2-3
5. return the cmos battery back
6. plug the computer back then turn it ON
7. you will probably get an option to reset or restore settings back to factory, it that's the case, continue with it
8. after doing so, turn the computer OFF again and unplug it
9 remove cmos battery then return the jumper to it's original position
10. put in the battery back then turn the computer on again
11. go to the bios and set it back to the setting that you have set it before
12. check and see if problem has been resolved

* I would suggest getting a new cmos battery if it's already old

Let me know if you need further assistance

Dell poweredge 4300 Bootup problem after replacing cmos battery


Look for a jumper on the motherboard where it would allow you to clear the cmos. basically you would move the position of the jumper and turn on the computer and let it clear itself.

Then after it clears turn off the machine, put the jumper back into its original position and then turn the computer on and see if the message goes away.

Also go into the BIOS and put in the correct time, date, year, etc.

I actually did a little research on this one. I downloaded the User Manual for this board. USUALLY, there is a jumper on the board somewhere that needs to be set in the correct position. I looked through the manual and can't find a jumper for this . I even looked through the bios setting just in case it might be covered there, no luck. If you can't find an undocumented jumper on the board somewhere labeled something like TRPWR, then I would try the reset next. My suggestion would be to use the LCRTC jumper to reset the board. Heres the procedure according to page 1-17 of your manual:

Clear RTC RAM (CLRTC)

This jumper allows you to clear the Real Time Clock (RTC) RAM in CMOS. You can clear the CMOS memory of date, time, and system setup parameters by erasing the CMOS RTC RAM data. The onboard button cell battery powers the RAM data in CMOS, which include system setup information such as system passwords.
1. Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.
2. Move the jumper cap from pins 1-2 (default) to pins 2-3. Keep the cap on pins 2-3 for about 5-10 seconds, then move the cap back to pins 1-2.
3. Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer.
4. Hold down the <Del> key during the boot process and enter BIOS setup to reenter data.

Except when clearing the RTC RAM, never remove the cap on CLRTC jumper default position. Removing the cap will cause system boot failure!If the steps above do not help, remove the onboard battery and move the jumper again to clear the CMOS RTC RAM data. After clearing the CMDS, reinstall the battery.

You do not need to clear the RTC when the system hangs due to overclocking. For system failure due to overclocking, use the CPU Parameter Recall (C.P.R) feature. Shut down and reboot the system so the BIOS can automatically reset parameter settings to default values.

I changed RAM settings in BIOS, now I can't boot - need to clean CMOS


well its quite simple.you have set the wrong latency for rams.
I suggest you put a latency around 3
reset the bios and check the latencyes..you know that you must have all the rams from the computer to the same data..like all the timings or latency.
good luck..
bye bye
