Sounds like a heat issue, is the CPU fan spinning?

Are any of the capacitors swollen?

SOURCE: CMOS Battery do no work

Just change your CMOS battery with a new one and after that goto the bios settings and update the time and dare.
After that just save the settings and then check that the warning message is coming or not.

If its coming then it means you need to change the CMOS jumper settings.

Schematics for pavilion501n motherboard


In order to locate a schematic for a specific motherboard, you need to know the motherboard's manufacturer name, mode number and revision number which is stamped on the board. You cannot ask for a computer's motherboard diagram based on the computer brand name and model number.
How to Check Your Motherboard Model Number on Your Windows PC
You can use the the aforementioned link to also get the same info specs of the motherboard without opening the case by using the Command line (CMD.exe) or by downloading a GUI based software app.
However, I prefer looking at the main board for the stamped info.
How did you determine that the CMOS chip is re-configuring itself?
Are you confusing the BIOS with CMOS, which are two separate and distinct components.
If the CMOS battery on the motherboard grows weak, or becomes dead, your BIOS settings will reset each time you power off the computer.
Most CMOS batteries are replaceable; some manufacturers solder them in place.
One of the first tell tale signs of a weakening or dead CMOS battery, is having to reset the system clock.
Try changing the CMOS battery; make sure your computer is unplugged from the wall outlet (or Back-UPS); then replace the CMOS battery; plug the computer into the wall outlet (or Back-UPS); power up your computer, enter the system BIOS and configure it to your specs; remember to save the changes; warm reboot; after POST and O.S. start-up; turn off the computer normally- wait 10-20 seconds, do a cold boot to verify that the system BIOS configuration did not change.
Unless you had an electrical surge or spike that would damage the CMOS chip, in which case you might get a checksum error or.... someone is playing tricks on you by resetting the CMOS chip via its jumper; the only other culprit I can think of off hand is virus code infection to the CMOS chip.

Is the cmos battery on a vaio vgn-fe31m on the


Yes the cmos battery is on the motherboard.

Every motherboard that runs a computer has a backup battery to run the circuit while turned off. This battery runs the real-time clock (RTC) and is referred to as the CMOS battery. By keeping the clock active and running even when the computer is switched off, power up/down cycles can be logged and before the internet, your computer could keep dates accurately. It also serves to maintain the system configuration settings in BIOS memory based on RAM or FLASH RAM.

I am getting an error code of 00161 and 00163 on my ibm think pad 2635


Error code 161 means your CMOS battery is dead and 163 is that system date and time are not set (which make sense as the CMOS battery is dead).
You need to replaced your CMOS motherboard battery to resolved this issue.

I have a battery dead on the mobo. changed it, now i cant get past the cmos p-word. tried pulling the batt, and jumpers. nothing works.


Make sure power is off and unpluged. Pull the CMOS battery out and get a screw driver. Then touch the two battery tabs where the cmos battery goes for about 1 minute or so. This should reset the cmos.

BIOS password locked


Try to reset the CMOS using CMOS jumper reset. Look this in its manual how to do it.

Or take out the CMOS battery out of its socket then place it back again this should clear CMOS and restore to its default setting. Without the BIOS password.

Im getting a boot time error called CMOS error and then i have to enter the sytem date and time every time i start the pc. After that it shows me an error like Invalid System Disk. wht does tht mean?


The CMOS error is caused by a dead motherboard battery. There is a small battery on the motherboard Usually a 2032 battery. The dead motherboard battery could also cause the Invalid system disk because a dead motherboard battery will also cause the motherboard to lose the Hard drive settings.
