Reboot problems

Hi Dear,
The problem you discussed is hardware related, IT has to do with the cmos battery or the Sata cable.

Disconnect/Connect CMOS battery and reconfigure BIOS settings again based on defaults
- Replace "ALL" SATA Cables and reconnect all drives

My hitachi 320gb is not detected in Bios setup

One bad lead or faulty connection point can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive boot up

test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause you problems computer needs all of the data and power to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly

a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd drives need to have current go through make sure these devices are working

check the CPU make sure it has thermal paste and dust free secure seating

also check your computer ram modules and cmos battery make sure they are dust free and securely seated some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

hope this helps you

HP Pavilion m7330n: Possible corrupt bios, solutions anyone?

what OS? is this XP? with SP3 or not? needs it. if XP.
you never need to delete old hdd, drivers ever.
reg booster?
would not reboot. the HDD fails>?
its not really BIOS, corruption at all,
if the CMOS battery is above 2.9v then no corruptions happen.!
the ROM part will not corrupt but the ram part can , easy, Battery.
check this battery any time bios forgets things this battery is the
no forget feature (CMOS NVRAM battery backup)
Bios can boot to any dvd, or cd, if you plug it and and select it.
BIos can boot the HDD, or SSD, or USB stick. and more, F9 key?
never use reg booster, avoid it like the plague,
any reg modifying programs are nothing but trouble. !!!

m7330n circa 2005. a desk top (or media center) Athlon 64 X2
so what DVD are you installing,
Sata, or PATA
tell what you have and why you need and adaptor,(btw i have them all here, from you name it ,to what eva.)

the HDD is SATA.
but what is the DVD jacked into?
dvd drives come in;
what is yours?

Seagate SATA 80GB Master Drive and Seagate IDE 80GB Salve Drive


You have to make IDE drive as slave. For this put the jumper to slave in IDE drive. Possibility of CMOS battery is rare, but you can confirm it by checking your system time in BIOS. If system time is ok then there is no problem in CMOS battery and you need not to replace it.
