Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

Changing Bios battery

I have an old Acer Travelmate which has been dead for years (the hard drive is damaged and it wouldn`t boot up). I got it going recently and want to use it again but it cannot retain date and time settings. I think I am right in saying that the internal battery (bios battery?) needs changed. I had a go at opening the thing up but couldn`t and didn`t want to break it! So, can anyone supply me with detailed instructions as to how to do this? Once it is opened, does the battery just unplug or is it soldered in to place?

TIA

All of the acer manuals can be downloaded from Acer's website.

Simply figure out what model your Travelmate is, and download the manual from here:

Hi there it's not a software problem. It is Hardware problem, Your screen can't afford the loadisit Acer service center you need to test your screen connectivity from Motherboard. May be its damaged. So don't go for format every time becouse, its not good for HDD life.
Thanks.

Installing windows on acer notebook help


you cannot usually switch installed operating systems from computer to computer like that and still expect windows to boot, but with windows 98 it *might* work.

to install windows 98 on the usb drive, insert and boot from the windows 98 disk like you were to install it on that computer , and then, it should, before it formats any drives, give you a choice of what drive to format.

Bios not find hard disk


If the laptop cannot detect the hard drive. This can be caused by a faulty disk controller, or a faulty disk drive.

1st. Reseat the hard drive and see if the laptop boots up.

2nd. Go into the BIOS configuration and see if the BIOS detects the hard drive.

3rd. If the BIOS can't detect the hard disk, the remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer detects this drive as an external disk drive and you can see the contents of the hard drive, then the hard drive is OK and the fault is in the laptop.

4th. If the hard drive cannot be detected then the hard drive is faulty, you need to replace the faulty hard drive in your laptop and install Windows to get an operating laptop again.

Lost boot up floppy


Two things may have happened:

The hard drive has failed, so it is trying to boot from the next available drive (floppy)

or

The BIOS battery went dead, and has reset to factory defaults and it trying to boot from the floppy drive.

If you can get into the bios ( hold F1+ F2+ CTRL+ ALT+ ESC after you turn it on), look for anything related to "boot" and change the boot drive order. If you find it, be sure to save the settings, then restart.

**note**, alot of the old computers have a very primative BIOS, and you may not be able to change the boot order.

Let me know if this gets you into the bios, as they changed "how" to do it over the years.
