Turn off the computer and unplug it. Wait 60 seconds. Remove the pc case (Should be the left panel if you are facing the pc, there should be two screws on the back. The panel slides back and then off.) On the motherboard (the largest circuit board, mounted on the case itself) there should be a small silver lithium battery. Using a coin or screwdriver, remove the battery. Wait 30-60 minutes and then re-insert the battery. Plug the computer back in, and boot. The problem should be solved. Please remember to vote for me if you like my solution.

Tip

CMOS battery failure


This is a very easy and money saving tip for all,whenever your PC on starting shows CMOS battery failure it means nothing so complicate has stopped working just a button cell has lost its charged and needs to be replaced because if don't do so there will be lots of problem such as if you open a mail lets say Google it wont open because CMOS battery stores Time details and if it has stopped working time will be wrong and Google mail wont work so the solution is to just open your PC and you will see a small button like cell which you can remove easily and can be changed.
Hope this tip will help you in your problem.

My acer 3690 have a bios password that i don't remember and when I put three wrong they give me a number that says 04899 plz!


under the memory is a embedded jumper labeled j3. It is flush with the board, just lay a screwdriver on it, hit the power button and you have cleared it. crazy jumper. put the memory back, reboot and hit f2, you should now be in the bios. Worked for me.

Philips iqon recovery cd


Its called, " iqonware iqon system recovery"...only available from iqon in dundalk (ireland)...if you go to there sales section you can see a picture of it, and you can click a button that says make a reservation for this product...and when you do you are then told a member of the sales team will contact you soon!
but there lies a problem....it appears the company went bust!
strange their website still operates really.
if youve formatted your entire hdd, you won't be able to use the F10 during boot up to recover your drive either...
only thing left ..purchase windows xp oem version (about (£65 i think).....
