This week my home pc has needed several attempts i.e. restarting it to get it fully operational.
Now nothing is showing but a blank screen saying “In power save mode”
Have tried rebooting to no avail, have replaced internal battery with new one, no change with now or without any.
Have tested video card & monitor on other pc both ok.
Computer AMD Athlon XP 2000+, 500 mb of RAM, running Windows XP Professional, service pack 3.
Have also removed memory & tried elsewhere, both fine.
When you replaced the internal battery you also reset the cmos adjustments,500 mb ram ? 526 maybe, not alot but won't affect startup,start from scratch,disconnect anything not associated w/start up cd drive,omit video card.and plug monitor into mobo (if there is a d-sub).You need to get to your bio's,restart comp while depressing delete.when bios shows up reload default settings.and start up.you can't resolve this without getting into bio's good luck

coin-cell battery (CR2032) usually powers the real-time clock and CMOS memory. The battery is 3 Volts,
3/4" in diameter and has an
estimated life of three years. When the computer is plugged in, the
standby current from the power supply extends the life of the battery.
Just open the desktop, locate the CMOS (Coincell) and remove using screw driver. Replace the
battery with CR2032 or an equivalent one.The
following brands are used interchangeably for this item: Energizer
(ECR2032), Duracell, Panasonic, Eveready, and 3M etc, which can be purchased from any local electronics store.
GoodLuck! Dont forget to appreciate the solution if I could have been of any help! CreativeTECH
This is not a fault..What actually happened was the same BIOS was backed up on both of the jumpers..This could happen while upgrading after installing a new graphics card..So its not a problem..You will just need to flash the BIOS..You can find it on your motherboard's support site or let me know and i will get you a link..Also if you need any help flashing it feel free to report back.
