How do I restore bios?

If all you have done is change the CMOS battery then the BIOS should be fine but it will have been reset to default settings which may have changed the Boot device and / or boot sequence.

Go in to the BIOS setup when you power on the computer and check that you have your main hard disk drive set as the main boot device.

How to change cmos battery

It's quite simple. First of all you have to turn off your computer and unplug all device cords from the back. Lay the computer facing up on the floor/table. Now, you have to locate the CMOS battery (It's similar to a watch - a little bigger though). It is on the motherboard held on by thin metal tabs. Some computers have the battery flat against the board while others have it in an upright slot. Use your fingernails to remove the CMOS battery and gently lift the metal tab. It is so weak that it can break easily. Do not lift the tab all the way or pull it off. Take the fingernail and place it under the battery in the casing and easily lift it up then pull it out. The last thing you have to do is replacing the panel and plugging in your devices.

I hope it works! Have a nice day!

Where can i find the cmos battery on emachines 420 desktop?

The cmos battery is located on the motherboard, and is easy to see,
its a big flat watch battery.

Look around on the motherboard for it, and there is a little clip somewhere around it that you need to push back to release the battery.

You should touch and hold the frame of the computer with one hand while you remove the battery, if you don't have a anti-static strap.

Why won't new PNY DDR memory work in eMachines W4630?

Read your manual, as there website does not offer it just driver downloads.
Also, just because it is the same kind does not mean it will work.
That is why most MFG of motherboards have a quality vendor list
for memory. There are thousands of people who can't get some mfg's memory to work with there systems when the specs are the same.
But I would go with what Ultim said and there might be a slot limit.

Sometimes this problem happens when your CMOS battery already dead. Replace the CMOS battery and run F4 to setup the date and time. Save it and you back to business.
