Question about Computers & Internet
My PC does not boot when I press the power button on. The power comes
alright but it will not boot and load files unless I leave it on for a
long time and later reboot it again. This has been the problem for
sometime now and I decided to take it that, the Intel Mother Board
Intel D845PEBT2 needs to get heated up before it finally boots. I wish
to bring this issue to your notice so you can help me out.
Another issue is that, it always reports a system date change(Problem with the C MOS date after it finally boots (thus during the booting up process). A computer technician in my area advised that I should change the CMOS battery, I inserted a new CMOS battery but the problem remains the same. Please help me.
Hi bridey28, when you replaced the cmos battery & the bios did not maintain the correct time than the cmos is not at fault. More likely its your power supply. The cmos receives its power (Recharge) from the power supply. An average cmos battery should last for 5 years. The fact that you attempt to power up the PC & you have to wait, points to a power supply problem. Not a bios problem.
Bios corruption is rare, unless you have tried to flash the bios & it failed. Replace the power supply before attempting flashing the bios. Every manufacture warns against flashing the bios. Only flash the bios if your 100% sure that it will correct a bios malfunction. If the issue presist after replacing the power supply, Intel has instructions of (How to flash the bios) on their site.
Here are the instruction from Intel for your MB model number.
You'll need this link to download the bios file;
Good luck bridey28!

Clean Booting the CN50
If the CN50 seems to be locked up, try warm booting and then cold booting the computer. If neither method works, use a clean boot to get the computer up and running for further troubleshooting. When you clean boot, the CN50 only loads files and applications that are absolutely required by the operating system. A clean boot returns the CN50 to an "out of the box" or factory default state, so that you can run diagnostic tests to troubleshoot the normal boot processes:
To clean boot the computer using the mobile computer:
1 Remove the battery pack from the back of the CN50.
2 Reinsert the battery pack and press the Power button.
3 When the CN50 starts the boot process, simultaneously press <and > until the IPL Boot Configuration Menu appears on the screen.
4 Press 2 to select Force Clean Boot and then press 0 to select
Continue with Boot.
The CN50 executes the clean boot. This process takes a few minutes
The clean boot process erases the CN50 memory, including all applications and data files in the object store. To preserve applications through a clean boot, store them in the Flash File Store.
