This issue is often caused by either an incorrect setting in CMOS Setup or a bad boot device, such as a bad hard drive.
Verify your boot options are properly set in CMOS setup. We recommend having the CD or disc drive as your first boot device and then hard drive as the second boot device.
If your CMOS Setup has an option to boot from the LAN disable this option.
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.
Then try re-booting and tapping the f12 key which should start up a diagnostics page

Inspiron 1000 doesn't save cmos settings


Hi

As you said that you haven't used the computer for long time then it could be the motherboard which has gone faulty not the HDD or DVD.
Try to use the new HDD with this old motherboard.
Or else you can seek help of Any Geek Squad or computer vendor.


In case if you have any more trouble do contact back in Fixya.
Thank you

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.

When the system was booting i turn it of and when it started it was saying boot agent version 4.1.07.


Simply set your cmos settings as laptop starts press either F2 or delete button to enter setup try setting all correct protocols and save and exit setup if problem persist u may have damaged a hardware component and may need to carry the system to a certified computer technician to get it fixed.

Error 00161 00163


[CHANGE YOUR CMOS BATTER WHICH IS INSIDE YOUR CPU CASE]
I do not think you fixed the CMOS battery - (backup battery = CMOS battery)
According to the error codes, you have a dead backup battery and the time is not set. Makes sense?
161
(Dead battery.) 1. Go to Checking the Backup Battery
2. Backup battery.
3. System board.
163
(Time and date were not set.) 1. Set time and date.
2. System board.


Go to www.ibm.com Find and download the user manual, and the "hardware maintenance manual."
Do you know how to get into bios/setup?

Start with the machine OFF. HOLD DOWN and CONTINUE TO HOLD THE "F1" key.
WHILE STILL HOLDING "F1", turn the power on, and CONTINUE TO HOLD "F1"
This will get you into the bios "setup." You should check the date, bootup order, etc, and reset.
I would check the "wire" you think you reconnected---you may just not have actually reconnected it.
The "hardware maintenance manual" shows you how to maintain this machine, and it explains the meaning of the error codes.

This will get you started on looking for the manual:

Real time clock loses time even while running off of AC. So, I don't believe it is a CMOS battery issue? The model is Toshiba A135 S2276 running Vista Home (32). Also, I have the dreaded self-assigned...


If you once take bios battery out the password issue will be reseted , the time zone of the date and time settings will changed , set the correct time zone first after that set the present timing, the time zone will be available in the time settings window itself , try it you can definitely fix it.
