Question about Computers & Internet
I received a error "secondary ide channel no 80 conductor cable installed." I inspected the cable... it's ok. I think it may be the bios... I want to try to remove the battery, but I'm not sure where the battery is.... would it be about the size of nickel located on the other side of the mb from the bios?? any other suggestions? T HANKS!
That warning (and it's just a warning) is telling you that the IDE port can handle an 80-pin cable, but you've only got the standard 40-pin cable attached. There is no problem, but that message will always come up unless you use the faster cable. (cheap item)
The title says something about a CMOS checksum error, so i'll answer that too. That usually happens when someone has reset the BIOS back to defaults either by shorting the reset pins or by removing the battery (which looks exactly like you described).
You'll probably want to go into the BIOS and set things back up... date and time etc.
