We're going to need a better explanation. As Johnw asked, desktop or laptop? And you posted in the WinXP forum but listed your OS as Win7; you probably should have posted in the hardware forum.

If it's a desktop motherboard/CMOS battery you're asking about, try this:
- unplug the power cord
- remove battery from the motherboard
- press & hold the power button for at least 20 seconds
- reinstall battery, connect power, then try booting the system

You will have to immediately enter the BIOS Setup menu to correct the date, time, & the rest of the settings. Be sure to Save before you exit.
