Hi There.

You have 2 major issues on your Dell Optiplex :

  1. CMOS Battery is low - this means that you need to purchase a "motherboard/CMOS" battery and replace the one that you have. You can easily obtain this from your local electronics store.
  2. 2000 0146 (Error) - this pertains that the system has detected a possible hard drive failure and that you must run the HDST (Hard Drive Self Test) to determine if the problem can be fixed or not.
Here is the detailed guide for you to go through the blue screen error :

Press f2 to enter the BIOS while you see the Dell start up screen. Once in there you shoudl see an option to load BIOS defaults. Load defaults. This should take care of the issue. Are you sure that you replaced it with an approved CMOS batter, You cannot use a watch battery, even though they are the same size it won't work.

Hi names Rui,


For your problem the computer may display a prompt to press F1/F2 or any other key to enter setup each time the computer boots as a reminder on how to enter CMOS. However, if the computer asks to press F1/F2 (or another key) to enter setup and does not continue, this may be caused by any of the below reasons.

  1. New hardware has been recently installed.
  2. Error or confliction with settings in CMOS.
  3. CMOS battery is bad or failing.
Solution:

New hardware has been recently installed

If new hardware has been recently installed into the computer, it is likely that you are receiving the prompt "Press F1 or F2 to enter setup" because CMOS needs to verify that the new detected hardware is properly being setup in CMOS. Enter CMOS setup and save the settings and exit. If you continue to get errors continue to the next step.


Error or confliction with settings in CMOS

If no new hardware has been added or you continue to get this prompt verify no error or conflictions exist in CMOS. Press the key to enter setup and verify that all settings are correct.

If your time and date are not set correctly, your battery is more than likely bad. Try setting the correct time and date, save the settings and then reboot. If after turning off the computer the time and date get reset again replace the battery.

If the time and date are correct and everything else appears to be correct try resetting the CMOS values to the defaults.


CMOS battery is bad or failing

If you continue to receive the prompt to enter setup each time the computer boots up and you have attempted to follow the above suggestions, your CMOS battery is bad. We recommended that the CMOS battery be replaced.


hope this will help you.

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.

Anytime i switch on my desktop optiplex gx270 it will alert me of my low battery voltage and should press f1 to continue or f2 to run utility setup


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

Generally an indication that the Hard Drive isn't detected
Things to check, go to BIOS F2, reset defaults and reboot, see if the HDD is seen. If it is, the battery on the motherboard is likely dead and needs replacement (Watch battery at Walmart, 3 dollars)
If the HDD doesn't detect after resetting the BIOS, then most likely a Hard Drive failure

I Could not logon to the system


If the 2 beeps were together, then it is a check sum or memory problem. When it boots enter the bios setup(F2) and check the system time and date (located in 'Standard cmos Settings') to see if it is correct, as this is a good indicator of a flat cmos battery (large type watch battery.) If time and date is incorrect replace battery, if ok turn off pc and try re-setting the bios by putting the jumper on the 'JBAT1' terminal on the motherboard on pins 1-2 ont pins 2-3 then back onto 1-2; then boot pc back up and go back into the bios, set the date and time in 'Standard Cmos Settings' and then look on main bios menu for 'LOAD BIOS DEFAULTS' or similair If non of above works, maybe you have upgraded the memory, remove it and try again with original memory stick. Hope this is of some help
