That warning is referring to the CMOS battery.
Powe off, unplug the machine. Open the case and look for a small round silver disck about the size of a quarter. Read the number on it and purchase a new one. (Should be something like CR2032)
Replacement is faily easy as the old one just pops out and the new one pops in.
You may get an error about Time and Date
Hit F2 to get into the BIOS and reset the time and date

-"Alert! System battery voltage is low. Strike the F1 key to continue, F2 to run the setup utility". Wie bekomme ich die Fehlermeldung weg?


to me it seems like your battery is not charging.use volt meter to check output from your adapter or change battery.
Whatever you do do NOT keep using computer until its sorted as you can ruin your windows installation or hard drive

My dell gx 270 desktop shows alert! previous fan failer. Press F1 to continue and F2 to run setup utlity. How to solve it?


The fan failure alert on your Dell, is caused by the timings. There is no bios settings, for this. You need a new fan that runs at 1400rpm or more. This will solve the problem, also a clean install solves this problem. Best to buy a new quite fan, keep the 5pin header from the old fan copy the wire colour for the pins, make sure the fan is pwm. In the worst case, you will have to change fan, and overwrite harddrive and do a clean os install. This will fix problem, other methods, like fan speed software will redduce the fan speed cook your motherboard, but will not solve the fan failure alert. Also enter bios by pressing f2 and clear log error before you install new fan and os.

Alert! system battery voltage is low. Strike the F1 ke to contunue, F2 to run the setup utility


Dell claims the problem is caused by some surge suppressors - and that you can eliminate it by removing the surge suppressor and plugging the PC directly into the wall outlet. Call Tech Support and have them send you a battery, or look in the system docuemtation and go to Radio Shack and get a new one if you are in a hurry.

I own a Dell Optiplex GX270 Hi I get a message coming up saying ``Alert battery low voltage press F1 to continue'' on a black screen What should I do and how thanks


I think this is reffering to your cmos battery, switch off the machine and remove the side cover, have a look around for a flat cell battery, it is usually a cr2032 or similar, these batteries are cheap to buy (maybe £3 or so)the battery in question, if your not familiar with cell batteries, looks something like an oversized watch battery, maybe 20mm in diameter.

Have a Dell XPS 600 problem. I am getting a message when I turn on the computer, "Keyboard Failure Alert! System battery voltage is low. Strike the F1 key to continue, F2 to run setup utility." What should...


If you have another keyboard try swapping it out and see if it reads the new one. Also a stuck key could possibly cause this error. System battery message probably means you need a new battery for the motherboard. If you replace the battery get the new one before removing the old one. If you leave it out too long you can clear the CMOS

If it is not keeping time then you need to replace the computers clock battery. The battery is a cr2032 battery usually.
