    I put in a new CMOS battery and Bridge battery.

    The main battery is dead so I took it out.

    The AC has always been connected.

    My NEC Ultralite SL/25C will not turn on.

Try to remove the battery and plug into AC.

It wont start I thought it was the starter sticking put a new one on it so then it started fine until this morning when I turn key over all I hear is one click on the fire wall on the passenger side then...

That must be the starter relay that is clicking. I know some Celica enthusiasts used to talk about old wiring in the starting circuit causing such problems-too much resistance in the old wiring and connections. Some of them ran new wire from the ignition switch to the starter relay and a new wire from the relay to the starter. One guy bypassed the old relay and added a new one just off the battery, with all new wires. He said it solved the problem.
I don't know if this is your problem. You could have something else, like a clutch switch that is erratic, maybe even the relay is failing. Try pulling the relay out and look for corrosion at the terminals-that could be the problem.

Poulan 38" riding mower.

Battery is likely dead - or has built a sediment bridge - shorting the anode and cathode.
Jump-start the tractor with your vehicle - or another battery to check.

Or - use a multimeter to ensure your battery is not draining to 0V when you attempt to start.
This also indicates a failed battery. It may have a decent float charge - but when the load starter) is applied - the voltage will drop right out.

Thanks for using FixYa!!

Time and date stop when laptop powered off.

it sounds like the cmos batt had the same problem with my desk top once changed cmos batt all was fine .the batt is located on the under side of the laptop you will see some removeable panels just check under these,but be carefull the batt might be soldered in, some are some are not. if soldered in you might want to get a professional to change it as the heat could damage your computer.
hope this helps.

I have a compaq armada but dont know the power on password how can i fix

Try this remove the main battery and mains power supply, hit the power switch to drain any retained charge. then remove the cmos battery. The cmos battery is on the right under the panel at the top of the keyboard, which can be popped out by gently levering it up at the edges. the key board can then be folded clear, watch for the ribbon cable under it that connects to the other way i know of. You might want to check this location first get to the cmos battery via the removable panel on the bottom right front of the case (other side from the battery). first remove the main battery. next remove the panel, under it you will see a modem card, remove the modem card and you should see the cmos battery to the right side its loke a big watch battery. there will be a connector on the wires going to the battery. remove this to disconnect it. now just push the start button with the machine un plugged, just to discharge any residual power. wait a couple of minutes then reconnect the cmos battery then the modem card, then the main battery. plug it in and start it up. the screen will come up with something like "cmos bad checksum, defaults loaded" do not worry this is normal. if it doesn't start normally, switch it off by holding the on button down until it goes off then restart. it should be fine after that, password gone. you can then get into your bios and set it up to your liking. I recommend not putting in a password. Let me know if this works for you.

Lights blink and makes weird noises comeing out of the speakers

The sounds are a distorted post code (Power On Self Test). They may be the same pattern as the blinking lights on some laptops. A post code will tell you what the problem is. In this case it will be RAM or CPU or a motherboard error. If it ran hot just before it started doing this then it is most likely cpu. If it ran slow or jerky then may have been ram going out. You should probably expect to need to replace any of those parts unfortunately.

You can try to re-seat the ram or change its slot that is something you can try at home. Changing out the cpu require the laptop come right apart and unless it is new probably not worth doing unless you can do it yourself.

Hi, does the pc load up to bios and does the pc power up, how did you reset cmos was it by the jumper or by the battery if you done one try the other. If none of that works, you may off blew or damages the power supply unit, you could of also damaged the motherboard which can happen because this same thing happened to me. and the cpu may have been damaged. get back to me with more details of what i said above and are see what i can do for you. Thanks
