    Thanks for the help...

    Great Site!!!



    But will this help my problem which is the "Power-On" password screen comes up after the Windos Logo screen loads and just sits there.

    I haven't placed a password on the computer, b ut all of a sudden it started asking for this..

    Will taking out the CMOS battery correct this? And if I do take it out is there a way to reset my CMOS codes?

    (And I have tried pressing all the keys -F2/F12/F10/ESC during the Windows Logo screen loading and it still goes right to the "Power-On" screen...

    Is the CMOS battery "round, flat silver object, coin-like" on the zx5040 HP Pavillion Laptops??

    I don't see anything like that on the mother board... These instructions you posted don't state that they are for the zx5040.

    Can you send me an image of were the CMOS on a zx5040 would be..



    Thanks

  • Cyko Dec 10, 2007

    I was just wondering if you could send me an image of the CMOS battery in a zx5040 before I give my rating..

    Or have someone you know send me an image, because I can't find it on my laptop.



    Thanks

    Locate your CMOS battery in the Mother Board




    Open the computer case and find the battery on the computer motherboard, verify that it will be accessible and that it can be removed. Most computers today use a coin cell CMOS battery as shown in the image to the right.

    If you are unable to locate your CMOS battery you will need to refer to your motherboard or computer documentation and/or contact your computer manufacturer for additional assistance in locating it.


    Obtain battery information
    Unfortunately, most manufacturers will not list the exact type and model of your CMOS battery; therefore, once you have located the battery, write down all information about the battery (Voltage, chemistry, wiring, and packaging). If possible, remove the battery and take it to the location you plan on purchasing a new battery from.

    Additional buying information can be found on our battery buying tips page.

    Removing the battery
    Caution: While in the computer make sure you're aware of Electro Static Discharge (ESD), your computer is off, and that you're properly grounding yourself. Especially before removing the battery.

    If you're computer is using a coin cell battery similar to the above example picture. Removing the battery is relatively simple. Simply use your fingers to grab on the edge of the battery and pull it up and out of the container holding it. Some motherboards have a clip holding the battery down. If your computer has this clip you may need to use one had to move the clip up and the other hand to pull the battery out.

    Unfortunately, not all CMOS batteries are removable; some manufactures will only allow a replacement battery to be added. If you're not using a coin cell battery and are not able to determine how to remove it refer to your motherboard or computer documentation and/or contact your computer manufacturer for additional assistance in removing the battery or how to insert a new replacement battery.

    Users with computers that do not have removable batteries only options to install a new battery will most likely also need to set a jumper when adding the new battery into their computer.

    Insert the new battery
    Once you have purchased a new battery, remove the old battery (as instructed above) and replace it with the new battery.

    Enter CMOS values
    Once the battery is replaced turn on the computer and enter all values back into CMOS or set the values back to the default settings. Additional information about getting the values back to default can be found on document CH000970.

    After the values have all been entered make sure to save the settings before exiting. Many CMOS setups allow you to press a key (such as F10) to save values and exit all in one action.

    If after following all the above steps you continue to experience the same error when your computer starts and/or your computer is still unable to keep the stored values it's likely that you're experiencing a more serious issues. Most likely causes are bad power supply or bad motherboard.

My laptop (HP Pavillion DV9000) startup issue.


As you know CMOS is an on-board semiconductor chip (stores BIOS) powered by the CMOS battery you refer to, inside computers that stores information such as the system time and system settings for your computer. I have heard of issues when the CMOS battery is low (1.3 it should have failed normally by now), from boot inc other issues, so id say yes possible. The thing is any machine at POST boot is only as powerful and reliant as its Bios, which has given me another thought. Some companies when a system boots have the CMOS ROM copied to RAM as ram is faster, I cant honestly say if HP do this, was just a thought.
hope helps a little, let me know if i can be of further help

CMOS


The cmos on the Pavilion is going to be in one of three places, and will be one of two styles of battery. The cmos style will be either a large watch type battery about the size of a nickle located in a slot on the mother board, or in a yellow or greenish pouch with two wires leading to a connector, located under a cover on the bottom of the machine, or under the keyboard.
