Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I'm having issues regarding my CMOS battery. It seems to only last around 3months. I sent it back to where I bought it from, and they said they flashed my BIOS which has solved the problem. But 2months later and the battery is flat again. I get a cmos checksum error at startup. The motherboard is a foxconn P9657AA-8EKRS2H. Can I do anything at home to resolve this issue. Or will I need to send it back again. As it's not fit for purpose can I ask for my money back after 6month? Thanks DJ.

I have a LG Stylo 2 and randomly it said invalid battery shutting down. Every time I try to charge it, it won't let me. What should I do?

LG seems to have a general software problem.
I had similar problems with my LG3 which I bought last year.
It turned on by itself, got extremely hot, drained the battery and I could not turn it off, but by taking out the battery. Also BT did not work. I also bought a new battery that did not change a thing. After having struggled with it for months, I learned from others that it was a software problem, so I made an RMA within the warranty and the supplier sent me a new LG4. I am very pleased with my new phone, it works well.
Hope this reply is of some use for you.

Hey there, you seem to know what you are on about i have a problem with my dt 125 re 2004. It had been sat for about 3 months before i bought it, and it ran fine when i got it did not ride it but it...

Where is the black liquid? In the fuel tank? Over the engine?
Please explain where and what you think it is.
I presume it passed the MOT and it isn't someone who is jealous of it.
Thank you

Amber light solid. Replaced the power supply ad the cmos battery. removed the memory and reconnected. Plugged back in and I hear the fan running kind of loud (louder than before) Still solid amber light

most times i have seen amber light, if it is where the pwr light is on front of tower means ur mother board might be fried. check capacitors one by one and make sure none are extended or leaking. dell has had this issue before when they sent out a bad batch of capacitors. may last it job was mostly issues with this. good luck.

Clock will not keep time only 4 weeks old plus the touch pad freezes up from time to time

The reason the clock won't keep time and date is because the CMOS battery is dead, this battery inside the laptop keeps the date and time in the BIOS even when the laptop has no power to it.
I recommend you take the laptop back to where you bought it from or call the manufacturer as you are still covered by the warranty.
They will either arrange for the laptop to be sent in or send you to a service center.
It's also a good idea to mention that the touchpad freezes too.

I removed my battery and guess my cmos battery was dead now i just get center light when plugged into ac, can not get anything to power up

cmos battery being dead will not cause this issue. you can actually remove the cmos batter and power the unit on fine. your issue sounds like it more motherboard related. check this link to see if you qualify. others have qualified for this motherboard replacement. i have sent many laptops in for no power/no video/no boot issues

good luck!

I will suggest you that you should claimed the warranty if ever there is,

Because sometimes the camera charger got a problem, If you have an spare battery maybe you should try to prove that charger is good and only the battery is busted.

This problem maybe solve by removing the battery and fix it back. and then charge it again.

But its better to enjoy the warranty. You should decide if the cause is much reasonble by changing the battery or by going to the vendor and claim the warranty.
