Amilo Pi 3525 cmos battery


Most laptops require you to take the laptopapart to get to the CMOS Battery. It will be a silver battery about the of a nickel on the motherboard. The most common isCR2032. Also sometimes the battery will be in a vinyl covering and have acable that attaches to a port on the motherboard. Which ever type you haveyou'll need to either remove the battery or unplug the cable and let the laptopsit for an hour or two. Then put it back, reassemble the laptop andreboot the laptop. With the CMOS battery out the computer will lose thedate, time and password.

Laptop wont start



This issue is often caused by either an incorrect setting in CMOS Setup or a bad boot device, such as a bad hard disk drive.

  1. Verify your boot options are properly set in CMOS setup. I recommend having the CD or disc drive as your first boot device and then hard drive as the second boot device.
  2. If your CMOS Setup has an option to boot from the LAN disable this option.
  3. If you have changed any CMOS settings, make sure to save and reboot the computer.

If this does not resolve the issue, try resetting the CMOS values to the default settings, save and exit.
If this fixes the problem but it reoccurs again later you main need a new cmos battery. Or keep your battery always slightly charged.

My msi u100 mini laptop won't reboot


Hello..

When you encounter this kind of problem you need to check directly to the HDD. This is an HDD problem which the cable are not good. Try to change the SATA or IDE cable. Or you may reset the CMOS jumper you can see the CMOS jumper near the CMOS battery. Good luck!

My toshiba equium just wont except the main password, cant reboot..cant get into bios


At this time you need to cleat the BIOS password first so that you can get into BIOS. To cleat the BIOS password you need to open your laptop you just remove the battery first. Remove the screw and open the back cover. Locate the CMOS battery, all password are stored in CMOS memory.

Remove the CMOS battery to clear the stored BIOS password, Or you can remove also the CMOS jamper near the CMOS battery and turn on the unit with in 10 second and turn off. Reinsert the jamper. Now the BIOS password are already clear you can get now in BIOS to change some settings. Good luck

I THINK YOUR MOTHERBOARD BATTERY MAY BE DAMAGED OR DOWN. YOU HAVE TO REPALCE THE BATTERY AND TRY AGAIN TO START THE PC.
