e525 lapTOP OR? FOR GOT TO TYPE THE "e"?????
2009 MADE? 13 YEARS AGO?
2 causes (of many but 2 are CLASSIC
COIN cell is now dead CMOS and boot order lost.
or hdd bad
the cure is, new coin, and reset bios and set boot order to hdd0 first
the hdd must pass smart tests. or all hope is gone foR IT.
that error means boot order wrong
or hdd is bad. boot fails missing on hdd is bad HDD 99% the time.
NO COIN LASTED 13 YEARS.
AND MOST HDD SAME THING.
UNLESS PUT IN TIME CAPSULE IN Ln2, CRYRO FREEZED.
now the BAD NEWS
the COIN cell is soldered down to the MOBO
and is not a normal CR2032
it is ML1220 rechargeable listed as 5 year life.(MAKER OF COIN)
so you fOUND this PC in a garage sale dead for $1?>????
no history told at all, ever fix old cars. ?
emaciates now owned by Acer and Toshiba does this nasty trick
there it is, in all its glory, lots of screws to get and soldering pen to release it, I cut the wires up top
and solder then new coin to top wires. and not touch mobo PADS
that is a huge hint there.(do no harm)
