Computer will not remember settings

September 7, 2011 at 05:27:54
Specs: Windows XP

power surge caused computer to lose settings memory. If computer is turned off, all of the settings revert to default but the time /date stamp is still accurate. I think that the ROM chip was fried. Does this sound right?

If the ROM chip was fried the computer would not boot. The most likely cause of not remembering settings is a bad CMOS battery.
