Bad cmos dell motherboard
\015 When I start computer, I think the cmos is stopping the bootstrap. How can I tell for sure? Even when I changed the cmos battery with a new one, it still occurs. press F1 to continue, etc. Is there a setup or config that I'm missing in the bios?\015
If u changed the CMOS battery then it should not show the f1 continue . first remove your BIOS chip on the motherboard and then replace CMOS battery and then replace it again after 5 minutes. your problem will be solved
