MY little sisters Compaq Presario S5000NX an the bios settings keep reseting when the computer is unplugged causing date/time and everying to go back to default messing everything up.
Anyone know if there is a jumper that stops this from happening? I remember the same thing happening on my Dell and it was a jumper pin that was taken out that caused the problem. Or hear of this problem on this computer
I have changed the motherboard bios battery with a few extras I have and still same results, just keep getting my bios settings reset back to default when unplugged and power is not given to it. Would like to fix this problem.
I am also trying to get windows on to the system but when its installing I keep getting errors that say file not bound and have to click try again before it will accept the file, once it is installed it will not boot into windows anyway, I had this problem lots times before caused by bad ram but I tested the ram and it works fine well no errors so I am thinking it is the hardrive but I would like to get the bios problem fixed before i swap out the hardrive and start trouble shooting everything else and redo the install as without the bios part fixed theres no point in moving on.
I would really like to fix this problem as its my sisters only computer and cant afford to build a new one right now.
Any sugestions on the bios problem or jumper question?
Thanks in advance for all your help and any answers you can provide on this system.
P.S. if you need anymore info please feel free to ask I will get it for you.
