Ok. Beep codes differ for different motherboards. Check the Bios. You might try freeware Speccy and see if it pulls up that information. See the manufacturer's site.

I have just purchased a GATEWAY desktop computer,

Try removing the battery on your motherboard and leave it out for 10-30 minutes (See page 65 of your owner's manual) . Make sure the power cord is removed from the PC when you do this. Replace the battery and see if this resets your CMOS memory in the BIOS, where I am presuming the password is set if you are getting this message immediately upon startup. There may also be a jumper on the motherboard that might reset the CMOS. If this isn't a new computer, or is a refurbished computer, the previous owner may have set the password and you could contact the place you got it from to have them fix the problem.

Sx 2370-UR30P CMOS battery errors

Hello Anon,

There are two possible reasons for the time and date to reset to the date of manufacture each time the machine is booted up.

The back-up battery is dead and needs replacing, usually it is a CR2032 but check what is stamped on the battery.

The bios reset jumper, on the motherboard, has been left in the "reset" position. Check the manual for your P.C., it will show you the location of the jumper and it's reset and normal positions.
If you don't have the manual, you might get it at:-

Need to replace cmos battery in Gateway MP8708

Power down PC. Open the PC tower. Look at the motherboard and find the CMOS battery. Looks like the picture below. Make sure you touch some sort of metal area on the PC to ground yourself before touching the components. Use something thin to pop the old CMOS battery out. The CMOS batteries are usually universal. CR2032 is the usual type used. These can be found at a CVS or Walgreens. Once you have acquired the next battery, make sure the CR2032 is facing up and just press it in.

What is the correct battery for the BIOS memory for a Gateway model 4025GZ notebook ?


When your Gateway computer is switched off, it still keeps track of various system information such as the date and time, thanks to a small battery that never powers off. The size and thickness of a dime, the CMOS battery can run out and need to be replaced. You can swap out a dead CMOS battery with a new one by removing the Gateway computer's side access panel.

Difficulty: Moderate
Instructions Things You'll Need:

  • Phillips-head screwdriver

  • CMOS battery replacement

  1. 1

    Shut down the computer. Remove the power cable from the back of the computer case. Disconnect the cables for the monitor, mouse, keyboard, and printer.

  2. 2

    Set the computer case over on its side. Use the Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the two case screws at the far left end of the case.

  3. 3

    Slide the side access panel to the left and remove it from the computer case. Find the CMOS battery port, which will be located to the lower left of the processor in most Gateway computer models.

  4. 4

    Lift up the plastic clip holding the CMOS battery in place. Slide a fingernail under one side of the battery and lift it off the motherboard port.

  5. 5

    Check the orientation of the new battery and compare it to the CMOS motherboard port. Push the new battery into place in the same direction that the old battery was facing. Push down the plastic clip.

  6. 6

    Set the side access panel back onto the Gateway computer case and reattach the case screws. Plug in the Gateway computer and power it on.

My dell beeps 4 times when plugged in, but won't come on.

4 beeps of equal lenght suggest that system timer is not working, you need to change cmos battery on your computer. If you are game, that is how you change CMOS battery on your computer, takes about 5min, required tool is phillips screwdriver:

1. Switch off computer, remove power cord
2. Remove left hand cover (this is cover which is on lyour left while you stand in front of the computer)
3. As you look at computer "gizzards" on right hand on the motherboard you will see silver battery about nickel size, it is located in this computer about three finger width from the bottom of the motherboard and about 1 1/2 finger width from right edge of the motherboard. Unlatch it and remove it. Purchase exactly same battery, be it in drugstore or hardware store.
4. Slide in new battery, + is up, towards you.
5. Mount back side cover
6. Re-connect your power cable and start the computer

You most probablay will need to re-program BIOS as all information is lost when this particular battery die.

This should solve your CMOS batery problem. Of course you can send your laptop to the technician but that will be no fun at all... ;-)
