Hold F2 or delete while starting computer. At Bios screen press f9 to set optimal defaults. Then press f10 to save and exit. Let the PC restart and with any luck your Golden. Don't forget to reset/set the date/time on the PC clock once the computer is at the home screen.

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.

Changing battery on motherboard

unit probably uses 2032 lithium battery - about the size of a nickel. Remove old one and insert new one. Hopefully the bios defaults will operate your computer properly.

Try changing the CMOS battery.

Go to any half decent supermarket or electronics store and ask for a CR2032 coin cell battery.

open your computer case and find the exact same battery somewhere on the motherboard and change/swap them over. There should be a silver retainer clip holding the battery in to its housing, release this clip and insert new battery.

My date keeps changing each time i reboot my computor and have to keep restting the settings where can i find the cmos battery and change it as been told it could be this as the rest of computor is fine...

the cmos battery will most likely be a 3volt coin cell battery. it has a part number of CR2032. 90% of all pc's use this battery as the cmos battery and can be purchased just about anywhere. here are some pictures of the battery although it can be in a different location on your particular motherboard.

How do i rest to factory settings

there will be an options in your bios on start up you will get a screen with your manufacturers logo and usually at the bottom of this screen it will tell you what key to press to get into your bios or you can remove the left hand side of your case and then remove the battery for a minute on your motherboard then put it back in and your motherboard will be reset to its original settings

My computer is changing the time back to 31/12/02 every time its turned on

Your motherboard backup battery is gone.
This is a watch type battery mounted on the motherboard that powers the chip (CMOS) that retains basic information (BIOS) about your computer while it is turned off.
The battery is gone and not holding the time and date.
The battery is very easy to change, do you have a tower computer or a laptop and are you OK with looking inside the case for the battery?
