Question about PC Chips M963GV (V3.3A) Motherboard

1 Answer

Battery Low Last year I booted up and a blue screen came on and the date was reset to 6/05/05. It said battery low, so I replaced the battery. One year later the same thing happened. I don't believe that the battery can die that quickly as my computer is still working but I keep getting the blue screen saying that there is a hardware problem. Could this mean that my motherboard is no good and I should replace it? If so, how do I know what type of motherboard to buy that will be compatible with my computer.

    Does this happen every time that you boot your computer or is it pretty random? Also, what kind-of system are you using? (Operrating system and computer)

Actually it could be the battery. They are not as good as they used to be. As for the motherboard you would need to know what your case could support. There is ATX, micro ATX, E-ATX, & BTX motherboards. It all depends on the case. Hope this helps.

How do I fix my CMOS Battery Low error so I can correct the Time and Date since it's stuck on the 01/01/2004 date and won't save in my BIOS?


This is usually a very short and sweet step to complete.
After you have changed the CMOS battery over to a new one all you should have to do is go into BIOS set the date, the time and the year. Save the settings in the BIOS, exit and restart the computer.
You have to set the date, time and year in the BIOS first then change it on the desktop.

The proper battery to use for CMOS is a C2023 coin cell battery.

Hope this helps

Alert! system battery voltage is low


Hello there and welcome to fixya
This is a very common issue with these desktop units the cmos battery will only last from 2 t0 5 years depending on how it is used.
This battery sits on the motherboard so you will want to first unplug the computer then remove the outer cover to expose the internal parts then look for a coin sized silver battery that looks like a watch battery then replace the battery with a new one
radio shack has these then power up the computer and you will have to reset the time and date ok you will get a error about this. here is what the battery looks like

I can't get into the Bios of me ASUS A7V8X Motherboard. I hit del and nothing happens. until i stop hitting del, then it just starts windows xp up normally. Every now and then it enters the bios on it's...


Probably the battery. Easiest way to check is first disconnect from internet, then check date in xp, if says year 2000, your bios has been reset to default, probably from dead battery. Check by unplugging computer and pressing power button 2 or 3 times, then remove button battery and move pins to clear cmos, after 10 seconds, replacd pins and reinstall battery. Bios should then boot to default settings. In General tab, set correct date. If xp still shows incorrect date, you have a dead battery.

My ST01C works fine for a few days and then resets itself. The clock flashes 12:00am every time it resets and their is no pattern to it resetting. Sometimes it works for 2 days; sometimes 4-5. I reprogram...


My guess, it's the battery... Manual has troubleshooting steps that point to battery.

1) Timer requires CR2 battery to work ... double check markings on your battery. Programs will not function without battery. Battery can be low without BATT warning on screen.

2) ST01C has 1 year limited warranty. Things wear out.

3) When reprogramming, do you Reset timer? Or just reprogram Time-Date. Last-ditch troubleshoot says to Reset and Re-program timer.

Your RTC battery or CMOS battery is either dead or too low to keep the correct settings, windows will not operate correctly without the proper date and time kept. This battery has to be replaced for your system to operate. Below is the service manual that will advise you of the proper procedure to replace the battery. Once the battery is replaced, reboot the laptop, go to the BIOS screen and reset the date and time, then reboot as normal. In the case of your particular laptop, the laptop has to be disassembled down to the lower case and motherboard. The included service manual has the procedure for this.

Low Battery warning on Simon 3 even when I changed it out


temperature affects batteries. if the batteries on the window sensors have been in use for some time it is probably time to change them. Alarm batteries are only expected to last 3 to 5 years with moderate use. If you have close neighbors or live in an apartment complex then false reads could be a factor.

Low battery warning


That is because while a computer is in sleep mode, it is still using power to keep the memory. The battery is only used when the computer is turned off. You should replace the battery as soon as you can in order to keep your computer running properly.

What is error 00173, 00192, and 00163


Hi,
Error 192 means a fan error, to test this measure the voltage of the backup battery. If the
voltage is not correct, replace the backup battery. Check the fan and the system board.

Error 163 means the time and date is not set, to set the time and date hit F1 when you see the IBM logo and set the time and date.

Error 173 means the configuration data is lost, to sort that select OK in the error screen and set the time and date.

In most case its the CMOS battery that's run low and need to be changed for a new one, so for the time being you will have to keep setting the time and date and it will boot to windows.


Good luck

Dell D600 Battery Causes Screen to go Black


Laptop batteries normally just last for a few years, depending on usage. If your battery is almost done, it may report a 'full' status, but just have the capacity to feed your laptop for a few minutes.

You may check this by disconnecting current while your laptop is started up. If low battery capacity is the cause, the same will happen within a few minutes.

Laptops normally go in standby on low battery, to avoid data loss.
