Can't Find Battery on old Packard Bell PC

We have a Packard Bell Legen 85CD Supreme PC. When I try to turn it on it tells me my battery is dead.

I've opened up the case and can't seem to locate where the battery is or what kind to replace it.

    Thank you, I found it with your help.



    Now, I've replaced the battery and the computer has given itself a default password "JUMPER". It's telling me to power down and remove, but when I reboot I can't get into the setup, it keeps telling me this message. Any suggestions?



    Thanks!

Look on the system board for a watch type battery, about the size of a nickle, they can sometimes be in a yellow or greenish pouch with two leads/wires with a connector on the end.

No power with power supply plugged in


I would use a power supply tester to be certain. Voltage meters are a good indicator of weather or not the main power distribution points are working, but there are actually several points providing power.

If this still doesn't work, check the power at the battery terminals to see if the battery itself is getting any power sent to it.

The style of power supply is different from a universal power supply. A universal power supply won't fit in the slot properly.

This website has it for fairly cheap:

Are you sure that the power adaptor is working? Does it have any light on the adapter box that informs about it's operation?
What usually happens is that the cable going from the adapter to the laptop gets crackled from repetitive bending, either at the plug, or at the box inlet. Inspect if the cable is intact, and if possible, checks if there's a required DC voltage on the plug.
Perhaps you might need a new adapter for your laptop.

One of my computers says that my "System Battery is dead" and I don't know what to do


system batery refers to a watch bater on the mother board used to keep time
it is as easy to eplace as a watch batery

Instructions Difficulty: Challenging Things You’ll Need:
  • Replacement Battery
  • Electronic Or Printed Backup Copy Of CMOS Settings
  • Backup Utility
  • Grounding Wrist Strap
  • Phillips Screwdriver
Restore the CMOS settings Step1If you've never made a backup copy of your CMOS settings (by using a backup utility program such as Norton Utilities or by printing a hardcopy out on paper), look them up in the printed documentation for your system or call the vendor of your PC. Restoring your CMOS settings from a backup will help determine whether the battery is the problem. Step2If you're using a backup utility to restore the CMOS settings, insert the emergency startup disk and follow the prompts. Step3Use the Setup utility that's built into your PC's BIOS to re-enter your CMOS settings manually. Restart your computer and wait for a screen that tells you what key or key combination to press for Setup. Step4If re-entering or restoring your CMOS settings solves your problem, then it's possible your battery is fine and the settings were corrupted by a virus or some other anomaly. If, however, your PC "forgets" the CMOS settings you just re-entered or restored after you turn the machine off (and then back on), you probably have a bad battery. Locate the dead battery Step1Turn off your PC. Step2Before opening your PC case, put on a grounding wrist strap to prevent discharging static electricity onto any sensitive components. In fact, throughout this procedure it's a good idea to frequently touch something metal (other than your PC) that's resting on the ground, to make sure you discharge any static electricity. Step3Open the PC. For most PCs, this entails removing a few screws with a Phillips screwdriver and sliding the case off. Step4Locate the battery on your PC's motherboard. This is trickier than it sounds because PC manufacturers have used many different types of batteries for CMOS settings. The most common are lithium, like the kind in watches, but they could also be a pair of AA batteries. Or they could look like two cylinders encased in red plastic: a silver box or a red and black box. Step5Draw a picture of the battery, showing its exact position on the motherboard. Remove and replace the battery Step1Examine the battery carefully to see how it's attached to the motherboard. Most likely, the battery is attached by a clip or with Velcro. Some older PCs might have the battery soldered to the motherboard. Unless you're confident with a soldering iron, don't attempt to replace one of these. Step2After you've removed the battery, take it to an electronics store to match it with a replacement. Step3Replace the new battery in exactly the same position as the old one, referring to your drawing (see Warning). Step4Restart your PC and re-enter or restore the CMOS settings.

I need to know how to reboot my packard bell pc


Under the start menu there should be an option to shut down; restart; sleep. Use the restart option & it will start rebooting. If this does not work then close all your programs and hit ctrl+alt+del twice. This should start a reboot. Hope this helps.

Do you have the correct/original power supply, and it is having problems of some sort? If so, you might be able to do some repairs. A common problem is often one or more of the electrolytic capacitors is bad. Take the cover off, and look for bulged capacitors (top of the capacitor pushed up & out). If you find one or more of these, replacement may return the p/s to working order.

Please note in ATX power supplies, you have a standby and full power or main section. The standby portion powers just a small section of the motherboard to sense when the power button is pushed, and activate the main full power section. Obviously, the main section powers the full motherboard, drives, fans, etc.

I've seen several units where the standby section has one or more bad capacitors which will produce either a dead or slow to turn on computer.

Use a voltmeter and monitor the voltages. There are sites on the 'net with pinouts http://pinouts.ru/

Check here for further instructions http://www.fonerbooks.com/power.htm

As regards replacement capacitors: I use mostly the Panasonic FC series available from Digi-Key Electronics. Mouser Electronics also has suitable units. You want capacitors designed for switching power supplies.

Hope this helps you out.
