Default Re: an irritating problem

Have you gone into the BIOS and made sure your hard drive with the OS is on the boot device order? When you replace the battery all the BIOS settings are put back to the default settings. Once you have made the settings changes, and if they all change back, then you have a bigger problem. Maybe something with the bios rom chip or the cmos battery housing.

Default Re: an irritating problem

if you make changes and the settings all return to default, your CMOS jumper could just be in the "clear" position.
