Specs: Windows 7 ultimate , 4gb sd ram
My hp pavillion s3000 clock resets to 1601 or 24000 when I boot I get default bios loaded checksum error sometimes it says CMOS battery failed I replaced battery 2xs flashed the CMOS with the jumper I'm running windows 7 and i get a blue screen to prevent damage and sometimes it just resets on its own. the previous owner never ha a problem with it it was unplugged for a long time and missing the hdd and DVD drive (apparently the sata port on the board is broken for this drive) and I replaced the video card with one that has DVI and s-video since this is primarily an entertainment computer

You MAY be installing the battery upside down, or you may have bent one of the contacts.

Have you entered the BIOS (setup) screens and reset the values there. That is necessary whenever you clear the CMOS. Time, date, boot order, default settings, etc. must be set.

Also, what BIOS version are you running?

Are you saving the changes when exiting?

When the date defaults because (usually) of a bad battery it resets to the original bios date but 1601 or 24000 isn't a date format that I recognize. Does it reset to a consistent month/day/year date?

If not there may be a problem with the RTC circuitry.

What do you mean "flashed the CMOS with the jumper"? Do you mean you cleared the CMOS?

When entering the BIOS where do you see those values (1601/24000)?
