Bios battery dead & no power for a week no prompt s on start up to reset bios do i need to replace chip. AMD ATHLON 2600 2003.


You can easily replace the battery. Just take it off the mainboard, go to the nearest shop, buy new one and stick it back on the mainboard.

No need to replace anything else, only date and time might be messed up.

Problem in overclocking my Processor.

1: You problem is your power supply, PSU. When you try to give more power to your CPU by overclocking it, it doesn't have enough wattage, or power, to get the CD drive, or your sound card to work. This is why the CD drive works again when the CPU isn't overclocked. So, in this case, to overclock your CPU, you would have to get more power to your system by getting a more powerful PSU, or one with more wattage. How much you can overclock your processor depends on a variety of different things. Your RAM, PSU, HDD, CD drive, etc. I would not go past about 3.4ghz with your processor, however, a "max overclock" is hard to determine.

2: The maximum temp for your processor is 70C, 158F. I would try to keep your temperatures under 60C to ensure your processor doesn't "die early" on you. The multiplier cannot be changed, only the FSB can be changed. You should be able to create a "profile" in bios and set it to your default so that it loads up automatically when you boot up. Make sure you find a stable configuration before you make a default profile.

Memory upgrade on presario 4403us desktop

Hi yes thats correct you can have only 512mb RAM. This is due to your motherboard limitations or bios limitations. The only way is to change the motherboard this will allow you to also have latest usb 2 support. Just buy a motherboardboard thats compatible with your processor and existing memory.

Corrupted BIOS chip

That depends on your motherboard Manual. It should correspond to your BIOS. Download the Motherboard's BIOS file usually in a Zip then the contents are .bin files. Then use the BIOS manufacturer's EPRON Programming tool. Which usually comes with a user manual. Just follow its examples. Good luck!
