If you changed the CMOS battery you in effect reset it. On boot up, go into the BIOS setup and check all settings. Even if you don't change any of the BIOS settings, save them as if you did and it will reboot. Should be OK then.

How to fix bios setting on hp pavilion a6110n

The best way to reset the BIOS back to the defaults (if there isnt a setting to install the defaults), is to remove the BIOS battery for 15mins. This will drain the charge from the BIOS, insert the battery and then go to the BIOS setting to set the Date and Time.

I bought a hp pavillion dv600 series, now after 1 yr my battery symbol shows a red cross and notifies me to change the battery. i have done dat but still, problems still survive. thanks in advance


I think you can try these steps to isolate the problem on your machine and also it may help you resolved the problem for your battery being not detected.

Perform Hard Reset

Performing a hard reset erases all of the information that is stored in the temporary memory and forces Windows to do a complete scan of the system, including the battery.
To perform a hard reset, follow the steps below.

1. Unplug the AC adapter from the notebook PC and remove the PC from any port replicator or docking station.

2. Remove the battery from the notebook battery compartment.

3. Press and hold down the power button for about 15 seconds to drain any residual electrical charge from the capacitors.

4. Once started, insert the battery and plug the AC adapter back into the notebook PC.

5. Press the power button to turn on the notebook PC.

6. Use the arrow keys to highlight Start Windows Normally , if it is not already highlighted, and then press the enter key.

Use the software HP Battery Check to test the battery, Once you have login to your PC. If its not working try this.

Resetting the BIOS to default settings

Resetting the defaults in the BIOS removes any possible incorrect valves and returns the BIOS to a known good condition.

To reset the BIOS defaults, follow the steps below.

1. Press the power button to turn on the notebook and repeatedly press f10 to enter the BIOS setup.

2. Navigate through the BIOS and select the option to restore the BIOS defaults. The option will have words like Restore Defaults or Setup Defaults .

3. Confirm that you want to restore the BIOS defaults, and then select the option to save and exit the BIOS setup.

Use again the Battery Check to test the battery. If those steps does not work you try this last step.

Update the BIOS

If resetting the BIOS default setting to the original condition does not resolve the problem, look for and install an updated BIOS. Just go to this link to download the updated BIOS for your machine and choose your Operating System.

If happens those steps did not work mostlikely there is already a problem with the connector of your battery inside the machine.

Hope it helps.

Power on it ask for phoenix pass code

The phoenix password relates to the BIOS. If the computer was rebooted without any changes or you just recieved the computer, you have to know the password to get into BIOS. It should boot normally unless the Phoenix passcode your taking about is some sort of bitlocker program to encrypt the hard drive. If it is a encryption password your dead in the water without that password. If the problem is in the BIOS, you can reset you system by removing the BIOS battery and depending on the Model you can reset your BIOS to default, eliminating the password problem. I don't know what type of computer it is but the manuf support site should have BIOS reset instructions just for that reason.

  • Restart your Sony Vaio computer.

  • Press the "F2" key to enter the BIOS.

  • Use the arrow keys to highlight the "Load BIOS Defaults" menu option. Select it by pressing "Enter."
  • Highlight "Load BIOS Defaults" again and hit "Enter." This will reset all of the settings of your Vaio's BIOS back to their original factory defaults. You can now select "Save Changes and Exit" to exit the BIOS.

    I can't get into the Bios of me ASUS A7V8X Motherboard. I hit del and nothing happens. until i stop hitting del, then it just starts windows xp up normally. Every now and then it enters the bios on it's...

    Probably the battery. Easiest way to check is first disconnect from internet, then check date in xp, if says year 2000, your bios has been reset to default, probably from dead battery. Check by unplugging computer and pressing power button 2 or 3 times, then remove button battery and move pins to clear cmos, after 10 seconds, replacd pins and reinstall battery. Bios should then boot to default settings. In General tab, set correct date. If xp still shows incorrect date, you have a dead battery.

    Clearing cmos

    The BIOS battery maybe under one of the panels on the bottom of the laptop or under the keyboard.
    To reset the BIOS ack to the default settings, go into the BIOS configuration and look at the various configurations, usually there is a setting to load the Default settings, then save and exit, and this would not change the Date & Time setting.
    The other way to set the BIOS default setting is to remove the BIOS battery (it is probably a lithium 3volt button battery), wait 1/2 hour and replace the battery, the go into the BIOS configuration and set the Date & Time setting etc.
