Bosch gas Analyzer

My 15 year old bosch Gas analyzer has lost its memory because a small button battery that I did not know it even had has gone flat. I have fitted a new battery but can not reset the program. the manufacture Bosch say that it needs a new board as it can not be reset by the user.but the board is not available and it seems an awfull shame to scrap such a good machine just because it needs the programe reloading. Can anybody help.

    thanks for your help I have tried most of your suggestions but not the 5 second shift I'll try that in the morning I am sure there must be a sequence of options on the various buttons to reset this but no one seems to want to let me in on the secret.
    thanks again...hawkmount

Hmm....interesting issue. Let me try to point you in some directions that "might" help. First of all, with a computer motherboard, removing the battery and replacing it is the equivalent of shortening the pins to reset the "bios"....that funny name would be the equivalent to your software in all having said that are there a couple of pins next to the battery and do you see a black or white (usually) small removable pin connector. If so, try moving it to another position...count to five...continue that process until you have covered all combinations and then return it to the original position. The boot (turn on) your machine again. Do this with power off obviously. If that fails ask Bosch how much to reset your board...just for drill but who knows it might be cheap. Also try to get to a "real" tech. The guys behind the front line help support. Most of them I suspect would give you the procedure unless company policy and $'s dictate an unhealthy policy. Failing that write a letter (polite) to the fact send it to a number of people and locations including a few up the food chain (as in board of director's) your satisfaction with the machine, blah blah...and then wait.

I assume there is nothing on their website nor on the internet but you might check the former if not done and google the internet with a variety of search statements. You might get lucky.

Also...most EE's (electrical engineers) would not intentionally design a product that "died" when the battery life ran out. You might want to try pressing various combinations of keys on your analyzer...the reset feature is more than likely there. If not then it was apparently an intentional design other words their way of getting you to buy new.

Two last things....depending on usage (I am guessing it's not used significantly) if you have less than 3-4 years continuous usage pursing all the above is worth it. If you have 7 or more then the "solid state" portion of the device may be nearing it's end of life...MTBF....mean time between failures. If you have 4 to 7 it's up to you. You might also put a "want it" on Ebay and similar sites and just store it for a while. You might come up with another

Hope the above helps....Tango.

My PC always gets this "checksum error" ..."date

Are you inserting the batteries with the totally flat side up and button side down?
And did you remember to put the clear cmos jumper back where it was, because if not, not only may you have damaged the unit, but that is the only explanation I can see for draining the battery like that.
The PC should never be powered on while the cmos jumper is in the clear position.

Group policy and security settings

Microsoft has a tool called Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA) you can use to run a scan on your system which will compare your security settings & patch level to microsofts recomendations.

Hope that helps.

To slow

Computer slowdowns have several factors.

How much memory do you have?

If its 256 or below, try adding or upgrading it to 512 mb or more. Having insufficient memory causes your computer to take some space of your hard disk as a substitute, which is a lot slower than the memory ram.

Also check how much space is available on your hard disk. About 15% of the hard disk space must be freed to prevent slowdown.

Use the Disk Cleanup tool to clean some unneeded files. Go to My Computer, then right-click the drive you want to clean up, then click Properties, and click Disk Cleanup.

Try also to defrag your files to lessen the time for the access arm of your hard disk to search/read a file. To defrag your hard disk (or other storage device), go to My Computer, then right-click the drive you want to defrag, click on Properties, then tools, and click Deframent now. Analyze first so you will know if you should defrag the volume, then defrag if necessary. Do this every month to prevent too much fragmentation of files.

Scan for virus and spyware, becuase most of them take hard disk space, memory and have high CPU usage, thus making your system slow even there is no program running. For free anti virus, try AVG. For anti-spyware, try SpyBot S&D.

Also make sure that your computer is properly ventilated. Heat could also limit the performance of your computer.
