CMOS battery is bad.
You need to change the CMOS battery. The battery is on the motherboard. It is the size of a quarter. Ussually has the number 2032 on it. You can purchase it in Best Buys or an office supply store.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

I removed my battery from my Dell Dimension desk top, waited and then put battery back in and started my computer.


When you removed the battery your computer lost all of it's configuration settings. You have to go into the set-up menu and and select the devices that are installed on your computer. Such as floppy drive, CD drive, DVD drive. Also have to set date and time.

Hi,

The CMOS/BIOS battery has died and needs replacing.

The battery is located on the motherboard inside the case of the computer.

To replace the battery you'll have to open the case up and replace the battery. It looks like this >>>

Once you have replaced this battery and restarted your computer you will need to access the BIOS to set the date, time and also tell the computers BIOS that the floppy drive is not there and to set the boot order of the computer.

Once you have done all this you should not get that message again for a good few years.


Regards.

Error 12169 license invalid web page not available all secure sites shut down


this sounds like a security issue. you need to open your web browser, click tools -> internet options -> security tab -> set the security slider level to medium-high, click the privacy tab -> set the slider to medium-high or less and this should solve your problem
if not you could possibly have an invalid time and date set on your machine which would prevent a valid license. right click the time in the bottom right corner -> adjust date and time -> enter the correct date and time
hope this helps. please rate me and thanks for choosing enterprise computing solutions.

Check the time on your computer. If it's wrong, the computer thinks the certificate is out of date, or not in date yet.

Hope this fixes the problem for you!

My D.C does not keep the date


Exit the menu that comes up about time & date when you turn it on. Then press the menu button, use the left navigation button, then scroll down to date & time, and set it there. For some reason when it comes up the navigation buttons won't let you set the time, but when accessed from the menu, it will.

IDE slot U/S


I would check the RAM. dpending on how much and how many, try removeing one, then the other and swaping them out and running the computer with just one at a time. if one works and the other doesnt, BINGO, thats the problem.

If they both work seperatly, put them both back in and try it. SOmetime sdust will build on the contacts and you have to clean it out and reseat the devices.

You can also try resetting the bios by unpluging th P.C. and removing the bios battery for a minute, put back in, power on and see what happens.

If you get an error about an invalid system config, just hit F1 and ignor it, thats just the system telling you the Time and date need to be set.

Good luck and let me know if you need more help, or want it.:)
