Replace the coin cell battery and reboot. You'll have to reset the time and date. Your power supply may be losing critical voltages too. You can check it with a volt meter. Look for 3.3 volts, 5 volts and 12 volts on the power connector of the hard drive.

    This is a security system DVR it doesn't have a power supply. The only thing I can see in the case is a hard drive. A motherboard and cmos battery. Thanks for your help

SOURCE: hi... i'm using DG31PR intel

I would reset the CMOS. This is done by removing that CMOS battery. Also, find the jumper that says "J-21" and move it to the alternative position. The jumper is located on the motherboard. Boot up without that battery in , and choose "Reset" that should clear out the junk. Also, replace the battery. Go to www.intel.com and look for a "bios update" the DG is a value board. a huge value board and one of Intel's bummer boards. Update the firmware. Once you do that, you should be good to go.

the beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the ram,all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk,and remains active untill turned off.
make sure that your RAM is securely seated
test or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive make sure the connections are secure including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA the ones that attach from your
((motherboard to hard drive))
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
hope this helps

SOURCE: hello, Although I changed the CMOS battery and


This error is not the same as a CMOS Checksum Error, which refers to corrupted values of the CMOS settings, the ones you set through the BIOS setup program. This error means the contents of the BIOS code itself are damaged.
http://majorgeeks.com/BIOS_Patcher_d3965.html

Find and fix errors in your system BIOS
BIOS Patcher can find and fix errors in your system BIOS (only AWARD BIOS for now) and also it can add or open new features, i.e. some features that your BIOS has but they are closed by manufacturer of your motherboard. It scans rom file. If it finds any known errors it fixes the errors. If it finds any closed features it opens it. hope this helps

I forgot my password how can i log on to windows




how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased
or if using XP

Restart your computer during the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer Advanced Boot Options screen appears.

Select the Safe Mode option using the up and down arrow keys, then press the ENTER key. Choose "Windows XP Home/Professional", depending on the version of the operating system.

Press ENTER. Shortly, the welcome screen should show.
Log in as "Administrator". Click Yes to not use System Restore Mode.


Click the Start button. Choose Run and type in "control user passwords" (without the quotes). Click OK.

6U214 Motherboard Failure??


1. try clearing your bios setup using the jumper provided on your motherboard. make sure that the computer is shutdown and power cable unplugged before doing this. make the jumper settings and wait for 3 to 5 minutes before returning the jumper settings back to its normal position.to locate the bios clear jumper; it's always near the cmos battery of the mainboard. after doing so, plug back your power cable and power "on" your computer. select bios or cmos default settings when you are prompted. save your settings and restart your computer.

or

2. or try flashing your motherboard again using the latest bios file available for your board downloaded from dell website. and select to bios or cmos default settings when you are prompted. save your settings and restart your computer.

OVERCLOCKING FAIL/CPU FAN ERROR


First approach shold be the CMOS utility, check in FAILSAFE DEFAULTS that the error settings for shutdown are either null for overclocking or disabled if you don't have the failsafe defaults on your CMOS utility then set your settings to best performance (should be found on the main page of the CMOS utility). If you are unsure of touching the CMOs then you could try to remove the CMOS battery (small 3 volt battery about the size of a 20 cent coin) located on the motherboard this should reset the CMOS and fix the problem. hope i could help,thanks:)

Bios problem in A8N-VM


Hi jino284, you're bios has become corrupted. One reason for this can be the cmos battery is no longer holding its 3volt
charge. Virus can also cause corruption. Power off the PC & unplug the power cord. Open the case & pull the cmos battery. (Its about the size of a quarter). Check the 3 volt battery with a volt meter. If the battery reads less than 3 volts replace it with a new battery. If the battery checks good than fash the bios. Go to Asus web site & download the Bios - Utilities.
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=A8N-VM&SLanguage=en-us
Than download the bios file.
Instruction on how to flash you're bios.

I'm betting the cmos/bios batter needs replaced.

Good Luck!

Restart win operating


Have a look at the bios and see if it loses the time, it may be the cmos battery is flat, and also in the standard cmos settings, enable Halt on all Errors and it may give a clue to the fault.
