Hi Collyod,

BIOS is a type of firmware which used during the boot process on Dell computers. BIOS can be accessed by tapping the F2 key at the startup.
Also let me know if there are any issues with the computer.

Thanks and Regards.

You will need to remove the cover and locate the jumper that controls your BIOS setting. (Sometimes located near the back of the server board by the power supply. Check your owners manual for exact location.)

Move the jumper the BIOS reset, power on your server and follow the onscreen instructions. When complete, move the BIOS jumper back to regular position (1 and 2) and reboot.

Good Luck

Will not boot comes up wth a 9F Error on the mother board.

The F( error message at boot usually indicates that BIOS has detected an error that will not allow it to continue, If you can enter BIOS, try loading Bios Defaults, If you cannot enter BIOS, find the jumper or switch on your board which says CL CMOS, Move the jumpers to the CLR CMOS position for about 3 seconds and then replace it in its original position.
If this does not take care of your problem, I would suggest you one at a time remove each card/ periphial untill you can locate the offending item....I know.....Pain in the rear, but unless you have the diagnostic equipment to locate the problem for you, A neccisary step.
Hope this helps.

How do I Find, Identify & Replace Bios Battery on my C502US


The board on that laptop uses a traditional CR2032 battery. This battery you can find at almost any jewlers or electronics shop.
You can see it in images such as this one or this one.

Now you knwo the battery type, and where in the board is located :)
As for how to access it I think this instructions (see step #13) are very similar for the C500 or given the physical similarities use the C300 instructions.

Hope this works,

I need a driver for my old elpina BA E-VO 9817

Ok on the board you should have a bio chip. If you can tell me if it is AMI or something else, and provide the bios string, I might be able to locate the manufacturer of the board and see if I can locate the drivers that you require.
