Clock stopped working on desktop how do i change the clock battery


There is no "Clock Battery" The only battery on a PC is the CMOS (BIOS) battery and it is a small "penny" battery. Just turn off the power and replace the battery.

Changed cpu on packard bell imedia d3318, still getting no signal on monitor and no beeps. When I remove the cpu and power on, there are no beeps


Have you check with different RAM, Did you try to reset BIOS by removing the CMOS battery and shorting CMOS jumper? Your Processor may be ok but you are plying with it. When there use to be no display then first thing you should doubt with the CMOS battery and the RAM and Motherboard, rather then CPU, CPU hardly gives problem.

None of the keys work on hp logo screen F10, f11. f9. esc system won't boot from hard drive or cd


Hi,

are you using a usb keyboard? A lot of systems require a ps/2 (purple round connector) keyboard to access the bios settings and anything on the startup screen unless you have set usb on boot in the bios settings. I would try connecting a ps/2 keyboard and see if it helps.

Hi, On my aspire L310 the logo ACER stays on to long (over a min). I checked in BIOS but dont see any way to reduce or to eliminate the logo. Do you have any solution for my problem? Sinerely...


Acer displays that logo to cover up the 'ugly' POST code that runs every time your computer starts up. If it used to do this quickly before but has now slowed down then your computer may be discovering various hardware issues on startup. This can also happen if your CMOS battery (which keeps the internal clock working) is running down.

First thing to do is update your BIOS by visiting Acer's support site and installing the latest one they have for our model.

If this does nothing to improve the POST time and you feel comfortable taking apart your min-desktop. Check for bubbling capacitors.
These can be replaced.

If all else fails, check the CMOS battery. It is a small coin sized battery connected to the motherboard. It is a standard battery you can find at the drugstore.

Hi when i start up my packard bell imedia i get a red light on my tower my fan is spining and my monitor is on a amber light plz help


Assuming the monitor is fine you can try the following:
  1. Open the machine and reseat the video card; if video card is onboard try
  2. Unplug the machine and remove the CMOS battery for a few minutes; Its possible Windows didn't shut down properly and CMOS is preventing a normal startup; after replacing the battery, boot up (will probably start up in safe mode
If neither of these fixes the problem, you may have an issue with the monitor itself. Best of luck.

Packard bell registration message


There is a solution for this problem, but you have to be very computer orentated to correct it. First look in the programs listing under startup and see if there is a link there for the PacBell auto start when the computer tarts each time it is turned on. If there is a link there right click on it and delete the shortcut from the startup menu. restart the computer and see if it is still there. if so go back and look in the startup menu selection and see if it has reappeared. If it has then you will have to shut off the windows auto recovery option so it will not replace the missing file when the computer is restarted. Now if this does not work, you will have to get someone that is familiar with the registry files. You do not want to go probing around in there or you may just shut down tour computer permanently. A professional will have to go in and search for the file entry that controls the option and then delete the corresponding registry entries. Regards, rcampsr

Install cmos battery


Hi, replacing the cmos battery is quiet easy, just take off the side cover you will see a round lithium battery on the motherboard, take it out, find the same model of lithium battery and just pop in the new one and its all done, you usally get 3 of the batterys for about £5..

All the best
