Re: need to reset the bios
When you pull out the CMOS battery make sure to unplug the PC and press the power button 3 or 4 times to ensure any residual power in the capacitors are discharged. If the problem persists you may need to remove and re-seat the CPU, Memory and/or video card to check for a loose connection.
Also inspect the capacitors on the motherboard for any visible damage like buldging or leaking capacitors, if you see any likely the motherboard is bad.

Hiyou do not need to update the bios of your computer (systemax desktop pc ) because the current version of your bios is still up to date. If you are having a problem and you want your computer bios default all you need to do is to remove the cmos battery for 1 minute just to be sure because the standard wait time is only 30 sec. put it back after 1 minute. automatically the bios will be back to default settings
Usually delete, might be f2, to enter the boot order I gauruntee it's f12. If the bios is passworded, you are screwed. Try reseting the bios by unplugging the unit, remove the bios battery for atleast 10 secs, then put it back. If it's still passworded...see above.
Try opening up your computer and removing the CMOS battery. Should be the only battery on your motherboard (the thing everything plugs into) this will usually reset your bios. Some bios also have a jumper that needs to be switched but without knowing your motherboard model I can't be sure.
Only with he restore disk and manual. Or download all software and driver from their site have a official windows cd inlc. license code and reinstall windows ans drivers. Put win cd in tray and reboot (change bios if needed to boot from cd). Install windows, install al drivers.
i can't spot the exact problem as these type of problems originate from a large variety of hardware and software malfunctioning
but here's the basic procedure:
first basic rule of trouble shooting is to swap the suspected hardware.
1- first of all check the brightness and contrast settings of your monitor. When set to zero can create a similar scenario if this doesn't work then 2- Swap the monitor with a good working one... borrow it from a friend and test your monitor. if monitor is not at fault then
3- check the power chord - swap it with a good working one.
if all of the above fails then there is a problem with your display adapter .... take your pc to a technician and let him examine it.
if the monitor goes into standbye when you plug it into the computer , it generally means there is NO signal coming from your video adaptor.
Plug the old monitor in , if it works, ide suspect the new monitor(s) are not working correctly.
if it doesnt work , you need to restart the computer in safe mode by repettitively tapping the f8 button as the computer starts, before it says "starting windows".
If you have a signal on your monitor in safe mode, then most likely you have a bad or corrupted video driver and it will need to be updated.
if you have no video in safe mode , you will need to remove the cover and physiclly check that all add-in card power cables and memory chips are squarly seatied in there slots. MAKE SURE YOU UNPLUG THE COMPUTER AND DISCHARGE ANY STAIC BUILDUP IN YOURSELF BY GROUNDING (TOUCHING) SOMETHING METAL BEFORE YOU TOUCH ANYTHING INSIDE THE COMPUTER.
AFTER YOU CHECK THESE THINGS AND TRECONNECT THE POWER AND TRY TO START......POST AGAIN HERE
Try getting into safe mode, by taping the f7 or f8 key before it boots. Once in safe mode we can do a restore to the last restore point, and go from there. If you can't get into safe mode, let me know and we will go into the bios, set the machine to boot from the dvd drive and use your xp disk to boot her up, this method id too much to post here, let me know and we will take it up only if needed. Also try this, turn off any user accounts that the computer has installed other than your administrator account, and let me know what happens
