    Older pc used the battery to retain bios information, but modern ps use the battery only for system date and time as the bios is written in e2prom. It sounds like there is a problem with U'r MB. As a last effort, go to the Bios and select default settings. Without repowering, reboot. Still problem or changed? The date & time should not change if not repowering. If time/date is troublesome repair shop may be able to repair MB.

    when U boot up there is a message on the black screen. normally it's F1 or F2 or ESC key to press. This will take U into BIOS. Some where on the title menu will be selections to preset for performance or default... select default.

Bigbiggs is correct. Also, most newer BIOS have an option that states to Start up (BOOT) or Not Start up (NOT BOOT) on power failure. Because the battery is not keeping BIOS settings, this may be reverted back to Start up when power is applied. Check BIOS settings when you get tha battery situation sorted out.

    Also, on a lot of BIOS, the DEL key will get you in. Just in case F1, F2 or ESC do not work for you.

You need to remove your positive connection at the battery first. Now you connect one end of test light to battery clamp, and the other to battery. Make sure they have good contact. Test light will light up anytime there is a draw. The brighter the light, the more draw there is. Start by removing one fuse at a time and watch for light to go out, or at least dim quite a bit, and leave it out & record which one it was. The ideal way to do it is to remove all fuses, making sure light is out completely, then start re-installing them and watch for one that light comes on bright. That will tell you which circuit is causing the excess draw. If you think that will get you in trouble, or confused, just pull one at a time and if no difference in light, put it back in. Just leave those that make light dimmer, out, making sure you note where they go. That way if you have 2 or 3 with slight draw, (like radio, clock etc.,) but 1 with big draw, then you can zero in on that circuit as the culprit. Take's a little time, but it works.

Dead battery. Try jump starting it. Then stop by any good parts store (Advance, Autozone, etc) and have them to a FREE charging system test and a FREE battery load test. I suspect your battery has left this planet...

Car makes a clicking sound when I try to start it. Battery has been changed, but not new. Will start when boosted. Have left the car running for an hour, turned it off and re-started it without problem,...

Have the battery tested or better yet get a new one.
Make sure the cable terminals are clean and free of any corrosion, that causes high resistance and could keep a good battery from starting your engine.
If the new battery goes dead in a day have the vehicle tested for a parasitic drain on the electrical system.

Battery keeps loosing charge- kymco cruiser 125, 2005

I had this exact same problem on a hipster 125, it was a faulty regulator module ( mounted under the seat) I also found a short circuit (somewhere) in the wiring loom between the regulator output and the chassis (probably what killed the regulator in the first place!) I cut and replaced the entire wire to save removing most of the loom and after testing reg to ensure it was dead i fitted a new one (about £60) bike charges and runs like a dream now even with fully lights approx 80% of the time. good luck

2 new batteries and something in my 98 skylark seems to drain

how is your alternator working. have this tested for free at you local part store, they will even take it off for you in some places and put it back on. Also most good autopart stores have the computer to test your system and give you a free diagnostic report so they can sell you the parts. good luck

Shure Wireless Mike no Output

Check the battery with a volt meter. If the battery measures lower than 8 volts on a volt meter, replace the battery. I have seen entire cases of brand new batteries that are defective. Make certain to check it with a volt meter. If the battery tests fine, then send the bodypack to Shure for repairs.

Something is draining my battery overnight already tested battery starter altenator cellinoid

Hi there,

This response contains troubleshooting procedures designed to locate the cause of an overnight power drain resulting in a dead battery, It assumes the charging system is working.

The first (and easiest) test I run is on the battery.

When you are done using it for the evening, pull the Negative battery cable.

In the morning, re-connect it. If it's dead again, the battery need replacement. This does not necessarily mean you found the problem.

If it starts, the battery is ok. It's time to look for the power drain.

With the ignition off, ensure the systems that should be off actually are off. For example: does the radio still come on? Wipers? Etc.?

In the same vein, has anything new been installed lately?

The next test is a lot more tedious. You will need a test light, needle nose pliers (to pull fuses) and the proper tools to remove the negative battery terminal (again).
  • Ignition off
  • Remove the cable from the Negative battery terminal
  • Hook one end of your test light to the Negative battery post
  • Attach the other end to the cable you just removed
  • Again, double check connections to recent installations (radio, GPS, etc)
  • If it lights up very faintly, this is likely the normal drain of the clock. The brighter the light, the bigger the drain.
  • Find your fuse box
  • While keeping an eye on the test light, pull the fuses one by one. Replace the one just pulled before going to the next.
  • When the light goes out (or dims), you will have narrowed the the problem to a specific system. Check the legend on the fuse box for the offending fuse.
At this point there are too many 'What if's'. Which system has the drain will determine the next steps to be taken.

This procedure will allow you to focus in on the problem area. Let me know what you find out.

Hope this helps
