If the cmos is the problem or not sure remove the screws and find the batteries connection or buy a new one and get batteries anywhere in the world.....

cmos error, the battery for the cmos needs to replaced or look to see on the motherboard some thing with 2 or 4 pins or jumpers,
next to the jumper will habe in writting batt. or symbol big dash and little dash and big dash and little dash with lines in the middle of the dashs indicating line meaning leads or connectors for a battery device, buy the battery pack or remove the silver round disk on the motherboard and take it to anystore that carries that type of battery or batteries plus located all over the usa, foreign countries computer or electronic store, computer junk yard would even have them.

buy the battery pack that hold 4 batteries and you replace them without having to drive around looking for batties becuase that one takes AAs or AAA's and the are 1.5volts too and you can figure out how much power you need.

rod

ps the best way and the cheapiet to find out if you have to buy a whole new motherboard first!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How do I do a factory reset from safe mode with command prompt? windows xp


Restoring Windows XP operating system can be performed in DOS mode if XP's system restore tool cannot be accessed because of booting issues or when the XP recovery CDs are unavailable. There are two steps to this procedure: first, the XP system restore tool must be accessed using the DOS menu and second, the actual XP system restore is performed.

Start the computer and press the F8 key when the manufacturer's logo appears but before the Windows XP logo appears. Scroll through the menu options using the down arrow key. Select "Safe mode with a Command prompt" and hit the Enter key. Type in the administrator ID and password. Hit "Enter." Type in this code in the command prompt box to access the XP system restore tool: %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe. Hit "Enter." The XP system restore tool will open. b> How to Restore Windows XP b> Click "Restore my Computer to an Earlier Time" when the XP system restore tool starts. Click "Next." Choose a restore point before your operating system began to malfunction. Click "Next" and "OK." Click "Next" to begin the XP restoration process. Do not turn off the computer or attempt to stop the system restore tool, as this may damage the hard drive. The system restore tool will automatically restart the computer when it has finished restoring the operating system. Hope this helps.

When opening it hangs-up after windows opening normally after 30 seconds...


Just before Windows boots, keep pressing the F8 key. When you get the boot menu, boot into Safe mode and click NO, when asked to logon. This would start System restore. Restore the system to a date when you know that Windows worked fine.
Here’s a youtube video on how to restore a system with System Restore
Here are step-by-step tutorials on System Restore:

Lost system restore functionality after installing second xp pro


My computer properties system restore check if system restore is turned off.

If yes turn on all drives and restart.

If system restore is on then you need to create a new admin account and check system restore settings.

Also you need to have 6gb of free space in windows partition

Enjoy this will solve

Vanishing restore points


Well known problem .... if you have a multi boot system with Xp and Vista/Win7 everytime you boot into XP the Vista/Win7 restore points will be deleted.

This only happens if you use the Windows Boot Manager though. I would suggest using a third party Boot Manager to get over the problem.'

I recommend OSL2000 loader which can handle just about any OS on any partition on any disk

ibm thinkpad does not boot My IBM Thinkpad 600 (Type 2645-310) stops and hang during bootup. What happens is: 1. LED test, then green Power on and orange battery/charging 3. RAM OK (Responds when I take out /put in different amount of RAM and displays correctly. I have 128 + 32 removable, + 32 internal not possible to take out) 2. I can hear fan, CD drive and evt diskette drive. If I use diskette drive the LED wil give 1 blink, if I use CD drive it will give 14 blink. 3. No cursor seen, but this is displayed: Upper left show the amount of RAM present: 196032 KB OK Upper right IBMs logo in blue; IBM Lower left shows "ThinkPad(R)" in large letters and red dot over "i". 4. Then a "rrrrrr" sound from the loudspeakers after a while, this is in fact 28 clicks shortly after each other. Then nothing more happens. Diskette and CD drive is OK (But can not be used because bootup is never finished). I hear CD speed up and then down again but nothing more happens. No effect in booting with bootable diskette or CD, "Live Linux" CD or else. Backup battery OK (3V) and if I take it out I will be asked for correct date and time when Power on. I can then use keyboard or TrackPoint to set date and time, and after that hangup at the usual point. Starting without battery, HDD, CD drive and removable memory sticks makes no difference in symptoms. Pressing and holding F1 before and during poweron and startup (in order to enter BIOS and selftest) has no effect. I could not find help on IBMs home page, but maybe I did not look at the right place. Is somebody able to help me?
