Answers :

Ya u need to have a CMOS battery to solve this problem
Hello,\015\012You need a CMOS battery that keeps the time and \015\012start-up state even when the laptop is not plugged in whether the regular battery is working or now. \015\012The CMOS battery is usually a simple watch battery (CR2032) but whatever battery you can probably buy it at rite-aid or radio shack. Google CMOS battery for your laptop type and also look for instructions on how to open up the place where the battery is located.\015\012Good luck!
