The only battery in a desktop is the CMOS battery. This is a small round battery, looks like a watch battery and it is on your motherboard. The battery keeps a small amount of electricity going when your computer is turned off so that the clock and date can be kept current. If you take the cover off of your PC you will see it on the mother board. Write down the numbers on it and you can find another one at Radio Shack.

Try shutting the PC down and rebooting in "Safe" mode. In this mode you can re-set your user accounts etc. On Dell press F12 during bootup to access the boot menu.

I can't get into BIOS anymore. It just sails right by when I press F2 and starts up Windows. I've tried DEL and F1 but that doesn't work either. The problem started shortly after I updated the BIOS from...


remove the cmos battery from your motherboard and return it again after 5 seconds, that will restart your BIOS, or you look for the BIOS reset pin on your motherboard just consult your manual as guide.

How do I acces the Bios on a Compaq Presario 5000 built somehere around 2002.


during the bootup post routines you should see a message that tells you what to do to go into the bios.

Sometimes the post routine is run without being shown on the screen. If so, try pushing the F2 button, or DEL key during the bootup sequence.

Good luck!

Dell Optiplex GX280 Probem with DVDRW


Hey,

Please look into the computer bios / cmos setup and see if the dvd drive is detected there, if its not detected then its not either connected properly or this type of drive will not work with this computer. in that case try the drive on another computer or try another drive on your computer.

to enter bios, please look at the monitor right when you turn the power on, you should have a message to press button to enter system setup or bios or cmos setup. etc.

Possibly F1 or F2, DEL, it depends and the computer will tell you what button is the right one.

Thanks and good luck.

Can't enter BIOS


Hi there.
  • Boot the system. Press F2 to enter the BIOS setup.
  • Press ALT-F
  • Press ALT-B
  • Computer will restart and display a message indicating it is re-detecting IDE drives. After a minute or so, Windows will start. Test the device that wasn't working before.
  • If you want to restore other BIOS settings you have set, such as the boot sequence, you will have to restart the computer and enter BIOS setup again.
If this does not work try another usb keyboard in the same port.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Administrator password


If you don't have to enter a password to access the BIOS, you can go in and remove the requirement to enter a password on Bootup.

Otherwise you can unplug the computer from power, unplug the power supply, and then remove the battery on the Motherboard to clear any stored BIOS and Bootup passwords.

Dell Optiplex GX280 boot problem


I just repaired two Gateway systems with similar behavior (turn on power, fan runs at full speed, no boot), and both needed replacement system boards. (These were a different model, but the symptoms are typical of a dead system board.) I got the boards from a company called Blue Raven Technology (www.blueraven.com).

Before deciding the main board is bad, try another power supply to make sure that's not the problem. Also you might try clearing the CMOS memory on the system board (either by moving a jumper usually found near the backup battery, or by removing the battery itself). Sometimes corrupted CMOS data will keep the system from booting.
