This is probably referring to your CMOS or BIOS battery, if you open the PC you should be able to see a little quarter sized flat battery, like a large watch battery or camera battery. pull that out and use the number on top of the battery to find a replacement.

You should still be able to use your PC in the meantime but the system clock may not function correctly until the battery is replaced. (this may cause problems with security certificates and some online banking websites, etc.)

System batery refers to a watch bater on the mother board used to keep time
it is as easy to eplace as a watch batery

Instructions Difficulty: Challenging Things You’ll Need:

  • Replacement Battery
  • Electronic Or Printed Backup Copy Of CMOS Settings
  • Backup Utility
  • Grounding Wrist Strap
  • Phillips Screwdriver
Restore the CMOS settings Step1If you've never made a backup copy of your CMOS settings (by using a backup utility program such as Norton Utilities or by printing a hardcopy out on paper), look them up in the printed documentation for your system or call the vendor of your PC. Restoring your CMOS settings from a backup will help determine whether the battery is the problem. Step2If you're using a backup utility to restore the CMOS settings, insert the emergency startup disk and follow the prompts. Step3Use the Setup utility that's built into your PC's BIOS to re-enter your CMOS settings manually. Restart your computer and wait for a screen that tells you what key or key combination to press for Setup. Step4If re-entering or restoring your CMOS settings solves your problem, then it's possible your battery is fine and the settings were corrupted by a virus or some other anomaly. If, however, your PC "forgets" the CMOS settings you just re-entered or restored after you turn the machine off (and then back on), you probably have a bad battery. Locate the dead battery Step1Turn off your PC. Step2Before opening your PC case, put on a grounding wrist strap to prevent discharging static electricity onto any sensitive components. In fact, throughout this procedure it's a good idea to frequently touch something metal (other than your PC) that's resting on the ground, to make sure you discharge any static electricity. Step3Open the PC. For most PCs, this entails removing a few screws with a Phillips screwdriver and sliding the case off. Step4Locate the battery on your PC's motherboard. This is trickier than it sounds because PC manufacturers have used many different types of batteries for CMOS settings. The most common are lithium, like the kind in watches, but they could also be a pair of AA batteries. Or they could look like two cylinders encased in red plastic: a silver box or a red and black box. Step5Draw a picture of the battery, showing its exact position on the motherboard. Remove and replace the battery Step1Examine the battery carefully to see how it's attached to the motherboard. Most likely, the battery is attached by a clip or with Velcro. Some older PCs might have the battery soldered to the motherboard. Unless you're confident with a soldering iron, don't attempt to replace one of these. Step2After you've removed the battery, take it to an electronics store to match it with a replacement. Step3Replace the new battery in exactly the same position as the old one, referring to your drawing (see Warning). Step4Restart your PC and re-enter or restore the CMOS settings.

Gateway model mx3228 laptop will not turn on power supply seems to be okay and when i try to hard boot all I get is a pink light by the battery could it be just a problem with the battery


Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

There is no power supply to start the car why?


Check your battery cables and battery. Your battery might be dead or you might have too much corrosion buildup on the battery's posts so you might need to clean the posts.

Battery not working


You have a battery issue called " dead cell migration" This happens when the battery is used almost primarily plugged in. The Battery believes the Dead Zone is the end of your Battery life, when it is not. You could try a deep discharge by looking in your manual on how to do it. My guess ids that the hole has taken over and you need a new battery. First try to deep discharge and do a full recharge. You will then get two or three hours of Battery life.

Help!!!


There's not going to be a simple fix for this. First check the jack on the computer to see if it's loose or broken. If so then the jack will need replaced. If not, then the problem will be with a power management system chip on the motherboard. Either way, the motherboard is going to have to come out in order to fix the problem. Hope for the broken jack, this is repairable and will run approx $100. If it's the power management system, then the board will have to be replaced, and that's expensive.
