Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook
I dropped my laptop and the battery came out , once i put it back together and turned it on the screen goes black and it says "the amount of system memory has changed" i then have to turn it off and on again before it then says something about expecting to read memory parameters and then gives me the option to srike F1 to continue or F2 to enter setup, I press F1 and i continue as normal and it works fine. However doing this everytime i turn it on is becoming annoying , any help would me much appreciated ...thanks
This problem can be caused by two reasons:
1) The CMOS battery is damaged or displaced ( apart from the external battery, there is a small battery which is connected to the motherboard)
2) One of the RAM modules is displaced.
First make sure that the laptop displays the amount of RAM correctly. You do this by opening Control Panel -> System and noticing the amount of RAM.
If it is okay then press F2 when your computer starts of to enter bios. Make sure that the date and time displayed are okay, if not change them accordingly. Then Save the CMOS and exit.
If nothing changes then let me know
