Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop
When i turn on my surge projector and press the power button on it my CPU automatically turned on and it is telling me to run setup to reset time and date, i have recently read that this would have cause from the CMOS battery cause it might be going dead well i did change it in August of this year and now the battery is dead already. Now i know this can be cause from the battery was in the store too long but am not sure about that. I have asked my dad to buy the pack in the US cause i hate when something is not right with my pc cause its my life. Can u give me any advice are i should put the new one in first and if any problem i tell you. Thanks!
Not sure I understand your question. If you want to replace the CMOS battery, here is a link that shows location and procedure: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim3000/en/SM/parts.htm#wp1076111
You can also run diagnostics located on a Dell CD that you should have received with your computer. Look for one that has “Diagnostics and utilities” listed under the “Contents”. You will have to boot from that CD disk. To do this, power on your computer and tap the <F12> key to bring you to the “One time boot menu”. Insert the CD into the top CD/DVD drive and then select “Boot from CD/DVD” and hit <Enter> key. Select the “Run the 32 Bit Dell Diagnostics”.

Open the case and locate the CMOS battery. Just nest to it should be a button or jumper. Press the button or remove the jumper, then start the machine.
If it's a jumper, turn the machine off once more and replace the jumper before continuing.
