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.

Real time clock failure. Invalid configuration

..plz do check the following as in order:..
the Hardware part:..
3) unplug mains supply..pick open/remove the cmos battery..check (above +3v)..resit..change if required..

6)remove/clean dust neatly..dust is non-uniform in nature n may cause jam/short circuitry/excess resistance n many more..resulting an increase in heat..

7) open the CPU Heat-Sink with fan out of the socket..put some "Heat Sink Compound" (available in local electronics chip level spare market) between the cpu/processor and the CPU Heat Sink *** fan..resit/fit it tightly in position..

8)on main/mother board..see with a debug card for mb error..may bshort..look for defective capacitors(esp above1000mfd)/mosfets..go through the mb's south bridge n the circuit lie around atx connector..the crystal clock generator (if cpu isn't heating up)..

if u r not a professional, always better to seek advise from ur system admin/vendor....

Restarting itself every 5-10minutes

If your computer restarts itself with no warning, your problem could be an overheating issue. Make sure that all the fans inside the case for your computer are clean. If you find that they are coated in dust, or have an even layer over your heat sync, take a can of compressed air to clean out as much as possible.

System does not recognize reading drive D: or burner drive E:

hello, if i understand you right, you have 2 cd-dvd drives in your computer and they don't work. ok, see if the secondary ide channel is enabled-in the system bios-when you turn it on- could be the f1or f2 or del key, it should say in the post screen(if you don't allready know) do not change settings,if you are not sure. if i is enabled try disconnecting one drive at a time. could be a bad one messing you up.and make sure the jumper on the drive is set, for master or cable select, marked on back of drives. did something happen? or did it just stop working? hope this helps you. reply if you need further assistance. good luck!

I accidentally changed my CPU clok frequency from 100 to 250 and now my computer won't boot?

Ok I realize this is old and you may have given up by now or gotten it figured out, but I'm gonna try to help even with that being said, first of all I just recently had the same problem, this is a sure fire way to fix your issue,
step one, open up your computer so that you have access to the motherboard,
step two, find the system battery.
step three, near the battery there should be a jumper, this will be a little plastic piece with metal connectors inside it, it should be slid onto two pins out of three available, move it over one space meaning if its on the left and middle move it to the right pin and middle pin, the three pin pole should say cmos right by it, or clear cmos.
step four remove system battery, no need to worry this is just the memory for the cmos chip and it will revert it back to when the board was new, you can change the settings in your bios program back to what they were when it last worked,
step five, making sure that your power cord is not hooked up to the computer in the back, (no power to computer) press and release your power button a few times, (this will drain the capacitors stored power)
step six, walk away for about 20 minutes, just to make sure that clearing of cmos was a success,
step seven, replace cmos battery.
step eight, move jumper back to original possition.
step nine apply power to the computer and boot up should be operatioinal again, you can then go back into your bios setting and change as wanted, however I would only overclock a little at a time as boards will only handle so much overclocking before they will freeze up, i would not go more than 200 mine froze at 200 so you may not even want to go there, Hope this helps.......

Computer Shuts down

Well your processor may be damaged..

dont worry may be it is not damaged so what do you do is that open the cover of your computer.... Then start it and keep the cover opened making sure that you can see the processor fan running...

See that if the processor fan is running...
then with the help of a torch see that may be the fan is being restricted or it is moving slowly.

this slowness of the fan heats up the processor and makes it shut down you PC

if the is running slowly take out the fan using the user guide of the processor and then lubricate it with motor oil.

it IT Does not work then there is a problem with your processor so please check by placeing another supportive processor and check it!

CPU Hung

Hello Wolf, It sounds to me like the processor fan is not working correctly. When you put a load on the processor like programs, movies or games, it overheats and hangs up. Try taking a fan, and with the side removed from your case, have the fan blowing into the case, and try a movie or a game. If it does not hang up, replace the processor cooler and fan. Please let us know how it works for you, and if we can help you in any other way. Best regards, nightdiver
