You can look at the battery to see what one you need. I think most modern boards require a CR 2032, but check yours just to be sure.

When i shut off computer, time and date reverts to 2003 , new battery etc when turned back on msi ms 7235 ver 1.1

There is not a lot of info, but I'm gonna go with the choice of a laptop, since you say "new battery". There is also another battery in the motherboard, also, you need to set the date from within the BIOS, if you don't set it from the BIOS it will always revert back to the date of manufacture.

How do i restore factory settings

To reset you Motherboard the are two options:

Option 1: Software Reset via CMOS:

Access you computer's BIOS settings , usually when starting the PC the BIOS will state the Keyboard key to press to enter setting (i.e on a Dell press F2 to enter settings, HP it's F12 etc...)
Once within the BIOS settings scroll though the setting and pages and you will an option to "Load Default Settings" , select and Save (you will asked to save any changes on exit, almost all BIOS's Save and Exit setting with the F10 key.

Option 2: Physical Rest of the Computers Motherboard settings:

you need to remove and replace the CMOS battery on the motherboard, this battery looks very similar to a watch battery and usually rate for 10 -15 years battery life, it's role is to trickle fee power to the BasicInput/Output System (BIOS) Chip that all computers contain.


* Acess to the Computer , may require a Phillips Head Screwdriver
* A small flat bladed screwdiver or a pair of tweezers
* A steady-ish hand !

Open the case and locate the small round silver battery on the motherboard, remove the battery (may require releasing a small srping catch), relax for 3 minutes , replace and when the computer is restarted the BIOS and CMOS setting are at factory default.

Remember you will need to reconfigure you BIOS for :

Boot Order
and possibly other settings.

This is a situation where the Motherboard Manual can be a useful asset.

Ga-6vxd7 keyboard wont work to boot from cd

Plug the USB keyboard into another port (preferably one at the back) restart the PC and enter the BIOS again, this time go through the BIOS and set all the USB controllers to enabled, hit F10 save the changes and exit the bios. The computer will restart and you should now be able to use the USB keyboard to install the OS.
Please post back if you need anymore advice.

Good luck

Bios does not find PS2 keyboard/mouse

Did you go into the BIOS and set it to recognize the USB Keyboard after you reset the BIOS? Is windows not noticing it or the BIOS. You stated that it recognized the USB keyboard and then said that it did not.
What does all of this mean? USB keyboard does not activate "del" setup.

If it does not work, it is because you reset the BIOS and did not change the settings back for the USB keyboard.

I hope that I fixed your problem.

Boot up failure

It's possible you are using a USB keyboard and it is not being detected. You should be able to turn the caps lock light on and off if it is working. Try a ps2 keyboard.

may this help!
