I removed my battery from my Dell Dimension desk top, waited and then put battery back in and started my computer.


When you removed the battery your computer lost all of it's configuration settings. You have to go into the set-up menu and and select the devices that are installed on your computer. Such as floppy drive, CD drive, DVD drive. Also have to set date and time.

I retattoo my master cd but the computer components didn't match : long beep at start-up then freeze . Model name is Packard Bell iMedia 9600 windows98:windows XP . Thank you . or maybe you could guide me...


Go to: How to recover from a corrupted registry that prevents Windows XP from starting.

I post the link because the fix is very long and you will need to print it to start the process of boot your system.I also not shure your OS.

If is Win 98 here is the fix:
These are the Windows 98 boot disk images available from AllBootDisks.
Download the diskette image you need, and if you need assistance creating a bootable diskette from this image, visit the how-to page.

You have no Javascript! You must use a Javascript enabled browser. Download the diskette image: Windows98.exe 27/2/07922 kb

My Dell desktop computer is plugged into a master switch. But I still have to turn on the computer to use it. Lately when I turn on the master switch, the computer turns on automatically. But the Windows...


Press F2 to enter the system setup. Someone or something (Bad Motherboard battery most likely) has reset the BIOS defaults, which includes the Floppy diskette drive controller to be ON. Set Diskette Drive to NONE, then under integrated Devices, set diskette controller to off, save settings and reboot
(ALT + B)

if issue re-occurs then the watch battery on motherboard is bad and needs to be replaced

Packard bell itreme 1908 will not restore from maufactures disk


Rob: Do you mean compact disc, or diskette?

If it is a diskette ("Floppy"), there is a chance that the information on the diskette is fried and useless.

If, however, it is a CD? When was the last time you cleaned your CD drive? It does need to be cleaned, best once a month. The "cleaner" is actually a CD with tiny brushes on it that clean the optics in the CD drive.

The CD itself could also be fried (badly scratched, dirty, or even heat damaged).
