    Have you reset the bios by either changing the jumper (usually this jumper is closest to the battery or bios chip). To reset power off the system, change the jumper to the 2-3 position power on and off replace to the 1-2 position. Or you can enter the bios and choose "reset to defaults" save& exit then re-enter bios and load your specific settings or load optimized settings and save&exit (F10)

Unit starts/stops-starts/stops after replacing 3v battery?


When you say starts/stops (etc) are you saying it just keeps trying to reboot? Or are you getting a message such as boot disk not found press any key to restart? Replacing the 3V battery will cause the CMOS to reset to factory defaults. You may need to go into the CMOS and make setting changes to point to the proper disk drive for booting. You may even have to change the type of disc drive since there is now the old MBR as well as the newer GPT format. Also, there is the possibility that if you are upgrading you may need to use the legacy CMOS instead of the UEFI that many newer mainboards come defaulted to. Any error in the CMOS settings can cause a boot failure.

When i turned on my computer message RTC battery is low or CMOS checksun is inconsistent press f11 key to set date i have tryed f11 and had it pluged in all night still same message.


Means your CMOS battery is flat and will need to be changed, as that keeps the date and time saved at all times if it dead then every time you turn off the computer the date and time will not be saved and have to re-set it. changing the battery will solve this problem. Kronoguy

Hi promano67

When you "start" the computer, and the {"Screen"} displays a "Error Message."[CMOS] "error checksum!"

Settings: "Default" loaded.A "checksum error" shows that:

The ("Boot-up Settings "have been changed?"), ie. "Booting OS."

*Boot File 'missing'.

"This can 'occur' if the computer was "shut-down unexpectedly."

Force Shut-down : Power lost; due to 'low battery...'

A ("Power Surge") can cause this 'problem' also.

"What 'happens is that the [CMOS] settings are lost!".
"To fix the problem!"

Do the following:

  • "Restart / Boot the computer.

  • Next, verify if the 'error message' displays?

  • If you are still getting the message?

  • "You will have to "Remove the CMOS battery form the computer!"

  • Shut-down the computer.

  • "Unplug the computer from the {Wall Out-let}.

  • Remove the Lithium battery from the "Notebook."

  • There is a compartment (underneath) the "Notebook that 'store' the CMOS battery."

  • "You will need a {very small Phillips screwdriver}._953.jpg *Remove the CMOS battery for: [30 minutes].

  • !Important: If you have to do it again?

  • Remove the CMOS battery for a {'longer amount of time'}.

  • Replace the "CMOS battery."

  • Next, "Only plug the Power Adapter into the computer.

  • "Do not - replace the "Lithium battery!"

  • Once you have completed these 'task'.

  • "Restart the computer."

  • "Press the [F2] key, to 'enter' the CMOS / BIOS Setup!" _951.jpg

  • Next, 'reset' (all) "Values to the Default Settings."

  • "Press the [F10] key to 'Save' the changes!"

!Important: "Take a 'moment to rate the help', so I can get 'credit' for the work.

Thank you!" - paul7of9

Error is the firmware has detected that a coms battery failure occurred


Hello!
i just want to inform you that CMOS battery failure is not a big deal
you just need to replace CMOS battery from the motherboard
CMOS battery is responsible for date and time management in you PC
also it gives a refrence point in time and space when booting
so if you are a serious programmer you may change it immidiately
and if you are a normal user and you are least bothered with system time and date then
you may keep ignoring this message.

thanks and regards
kindly rate this solution!!

Low battery warning


That is because while a computer is in sleep mode, it is still using power to keep the memory. The battery is only used when the computer is turned off. You should replace the battery as soon as you can in order to keep your computer running properly.

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.

Cmos cheksum bad


From your problem description, it sounds like a corrupt BIOS and or a failing motherboard.

Due to the system age, I'd say cut your losses, salvage what drives are usable, and get a new (or newer) system
