    Can you give me an idea where the battery is located on the board, or are you referring to the battery pack?

Compaq Presario 2500 stopped loading windows XP with a prompt STOP: c0000221 {bad Image Checksum} The image COMCTL32.dll is possibly corrupt. The header checksum does not match the computed checksum.


This error is not the same as a CMOS Checksum Error, which refers to corrupted values of the CMOS settings, the ones you set through the BIOS setup program. This error means the contents of the BIOS code itself are damaged.

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press delete to enter setup
Press and hold delete during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
click start control panel date and time you can make your adjustments to the date and time from there also right click on the date and time on the bottom toolbar (bottom of screen) you should see Adjust date and time tab
hope this helps you

Not keeping time


Go into the BIOS by pressing F2 when you first turn on the laptop. In the main screen you should be able to change the time and date. After you do that save the changes and exit and go into windows and see if the date and time is current.

Let me know how it goes.

Compaq Presario 1272 save disk error


On the motherboard of all computers is a small battery. It looks like a watch battery. The purpose is to keep a small amount of electricity going to the motherboard so the time and date can stay current. When that battery gets low on power or dies then the time and date is wrong. Its called the CMOS battery and it needs to be replaced and then everything will return back to normal. You can do it yourself if you're confident or take it to computer repair shop.
