Unplug the power supply, remove the battery, locate and remove the BIOS battery (connected directly to the motherboard) for a few minutes and your BIOS will revert to default settings.

You may have interupted the procedure before it was complete.
Save your bios upgrade on cd or diskette.power down your pc and remove your battery for sometime.

Just replaced ram on optiplex 260 won't boot, placed old ram back in still won't boot


Hello:

Open the case. And try to reset BIOS by removing motherboard battery, disconnect the source power cable and press the power on button for 15 - 30 seconds. Reseat the battery, insert the RAM module and plug the power cable. Power on normally. When prompted, load BIOS defaults or simply press <F1> to resume. See what happens.

I hope this helps. Thanks

Firmware update interupted, server out


If you have jumpered for BIOS recover it should be able to boot from floppy. I think you will have to install a floppy drive, boot from floppy. Jump the MB for BMC update (if ness) and flash the BIOS and BMC that way.

Will not boot ... q50. battery light flicker 3 times


This happened to me. In order to fix it, unplug the power source and take out the battery. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds. Then plug back in the power source and the battery and power up the laptop.

This is called resetting the power cycle and should fix it.

My inspiron e1505 has the numbers lock light lit all the time and the caps lock and the lighting bolt next to it flashes for a while and nothing happens. Then the computer shuts down. Help please


Hi,
Try taking out the battery and booting it on AC power only, if the laptop boots let it boot up then shut it down and reinsert the battery and try boot again. If it doesn't boot up then there is a problem with the battery.

If it doesn't boot up at all post back.


Good luck.

Have you tried to reset the bios by removing the battery for around 10 minutes then putting it back in??? i would try this first.

Need boot load for emachine T2484


Hi, You need to enter your CMOS/BIOS setup and set your "First Boot Device". Immediately after powering up, press the "Del" key, display will show CMOS/BIOS settings. Verify that all your hard disks are being detected/recognized by your PC. Thereafter, set your First boot device to your new HD. Save and Exit. Hope this be of some idea/help. Post back how things are or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
