Did you replace the battery with the power on. If not you have lost all your CMOS settings for *********** board.

    The computer don't have to be on. But the power should have been plugged in when you removed the battery. Run the config utility from the boot screen will get you there when you boot . F12. You MUST set your time and date immediately after.

Hard drive has been wiped trying to re boot from windows xp cd. changed battery on mother board. getting alert low battery voltage and pc will not re boot. asking re boot trying pressing F1


It sounds like you either got a bad battery or one that is not compatible with your motherboard. Try replacing with a new battery that is compatible with your mb & see if this corrects the error. If you just bought the other battery you are using you should be able to get a refund or store credit towards the new one. Also make sure all the cables are properly seated as one may have come lose during original replacement. Hope this helps.
