BIOS defaults despite new Battery

I am loosing time and BIOS defaults when the Computer is Unplugged from AC. I have replace the mother board battery but the problem persists. There is a 3 point pin header near the battery. A jumper links two pins. Perhaps it is in the wrong place. What is the correct place and what else can I check?

Thank you,

Unless you have cleared the cmos the jumpers should be in the right place, but check the JBAT1 or CLRMOS or CLRCLK, depending on mobo, if tey are over pins 1 and 2 move to 3 and 4 or visa versa

Reset password


All mother board has a CMOS, complementary metal oxide semiconductor, battery. The main purpose for the CMOS battery is to store the system time, date and bios settings even if the computer is turned off or the main battery dies.

Turn off the computer (laptop) unplug it. Remove the Phillips screws that secure the motherboard cover then release the cover from the clips on the bottom of the plastic casing. Lay the cover aside then locate the CMOS battery cable on the right side of the motherboard. Unplug the cable then remove the battery. After a few minutes plug the CMOS battery into the motherboard... Replace the screws then turn the computer (laptop) back over. The CMOS battery is unplugged for more than a few minutes your BIOS will be reset to the default manufacturer settings.

Can you turn off the password on the motherboard


The best and easiest method: Close OS and shut down the electricity power of computer. Open your computer box (Make sure you have your manual handy), LOCATE THE CMOS BATTERY (it is look like a silver Small coin) take out the CMOS battery from the main board ( note: Before taking out the battery make sure that you already touch metal object to remove static electricity) . Then once you take out that the bios password will be reset to blank. Put it back after a few minutes. Same process as what you did when you take it out. Hope this help. Good Luck

I have a Dell Latitude D610. The battery was dead (got the 4 blinking amber lights and the green light flashing once, then cycling), so I replaced the battery. The new battery has the lights on the bottom...


From the description, sounds like you have two failures, both concerning the mother board.

1. The connection to the motherboard for the battery is no longer good. Replace the mother board. The points of failure that you have given so far and has not fixed the issue. Battery fully charged, seated well, no change, mother board.

2. Laptop will come on with AC adapter attached but will not boot up; mother board. There is a built in test that you can run, from a powered down state press FN + Power button, this puts this into a diagnostic state. If it does not go into this diagnostic; mother board. The diagnostic is stored in the BIOS, which is a part of the mother board.

3. If the diagnostic runs note any error codes that it gives. They will be in the form off XXXX-XXXX or XXXX:XXXX, where the X's represent a letter or a number. These can be used for further trouble shooting.

Pc starting problem


There is a battery on you motherboard and it needs to be replaced. Usually it's a large round lithium battery. If you replace that it should go to default.
