When you say "reset" do you ean replace ?

My first option would be to REPLACE the battery first. The cost is minimal and they can be found at radio shack, the source and many other places.

Once you have replaced it then dont forget to set your bios options back to what they should be as it is quite possible that they will reset to defaults and these are not always best for perormance.

Hope this helps

This is caused by a Cmos battery in this computer its shaped like a thick coin.

1. Unplug the unit
2. open the lid
3. Extract the battery
4. Take this down to your local eletronics store or even www.batteries.com it should have a code on it like CR232 for example.

these batteries are a couple bucks and will not break the bank. But if however this does not work I am afraid the system board will need to be replaced. But in most cases its the Cmos Battery.

Very very very slow performance


That is way off buddy should take no more than 1 hour to install and you should be able to boot up into windows in 30 seconds or less. I suggest you first run a virus checker. You probably have a virus that is why it is taking so long. If their are too many virus;s then wipe all the data off your hard drive and reinstall. That will get rid of the virus. Also run disk cleanup and disk defrag that are in the accessories/system tools. Good luck, let me know if you have any questions.

If this is happening on all workstations you should look at your network settings and verify that your DNS settings are correct.  Also look in the error logs on the server to see if it is fillingup with system or application errors.
