On the motherboard of all computers is a small battery. It looks like a watch battery. The purpose is to keep a small amount of electricity going to the motherboard so the time and date can stay current. When that battery gets low on power or dies then the time and date is wrong. Its called the CMOS battery and it needs to be replaced and then everything will return back to normal. You can do it yourself if you're confident or take it to computer repair shop.

I have an old laptop that partition and hd have been reformatted. I've tried using boot disk but keep getting the message that says, ''save to disk partition not found. So, can't get win98se to load as...


Haven't used win98 for a while so bear with me and this uses DOS COMMANDS too.
If useing restore cd/floppy you have to use a utility from compaq that creates two partitions on hard-drive.
They may have a restore floppy if you need it too.
One for "recovery files" and one for "OS Boot"
AHH, the memories, I still have my 95/98/ME Laptops up and running for older stuff. HP n CQ too.
Restore CD should do it all though.
If no restore CD - have Win98 CD?
if Harddrive partitioned and formated - Just do 1
1. boot from Win98 CD.
Partition n Format
2. Choose boot to DOS (puts u in virtual drive A)
AT PROMPT
3. Type drive letter of CD ( C: D: or E: )
4. Type CD Win98
5. Type Fdisk ( to partion drive)
reboot n do 1 + 2
6. Type format C: ( I do this to ckeck drive for errors)
OR
JUST Boot from CD and follow install instructions.
1 to 6 for if you have problem with Win98 CD setting up Harddrive.

MBR Error


The only thing that can be done is to scan and search for partitions (i.e. perform virtual partition recovery), and in case if something is found - display them and give the user an opportunity to save important data to another location. Third party software, like Active@ UNERASER, will help you here.The only thing that can be done is to scan and search for partitions (i.e. perform virtual partition recovery), and in case if something is found - display them and give the user an opportunity to save important data to another location.

My compaq presario f700 laptop boots when it wants


Your system is damaged. You need to have Vista cd. (or xp, or linux, etc) Then you must get to Bios, or bootmenu. When laptop boots, it is on a screen what key to press to make bios or menu running. Maybe f2 or del, maybe f12. When you in Bios, search something like bootmenu, or advanced bios features, then - first boot device. Make it as -cdrom. Press enter or maybe page up/down to change it. Now you must save this by pressing f10 or some key for save, and pressing y. Comp will boot again and run from Vista cd. In its menu you have option repair, but not always this will work (If you doing it with xp, forget to repair Vista). Try this, and if not working, reinstall system on the same partition. Dont format drive, just install, it will give you no loss of data (with xp, i dont think so, you just have to format system partition, but if you have something on second and more, non system partition, dont format it, data on this second will be ok). This it for instalation. After, you will have old vista in some folder (With xp you dont). You should delete this folder when everything works. Do not delete the new one :) No, no, you will find it easy, it should be something like -oldwindows. Better to remove it, cos' it takes a lot of hd. After it all try to find some good antivirus to avoid situations like this.

Factory image recovery on hp error 0x4001100200001005 when useing the recovery disk to go back to factory only loads up to 33%


I had the same problem with the recovery cd getting to 83% and giving me the 0x4001100200001005 error. I did 2 things. I cleaned the disk it was erroring on and also removed the ethernet cable from the adapter. I have been working for 4 days on this and parsing the internet for answers. Finally it worked. I don't know if it was the cleaning of the disk...which did not look dirty, or the unplugging the network cable.

Boot error accures


THE BEST SOLUTION IS TO FORMAT IT AND REINSTALL THE OPERATING SYSTEM. IF YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO DO SO, BETTER CONTACT YOUR SYSTEM VENDOR OR IT PROFESSIONAL.
