Having problems with your Gateway SL9550-30165318 Notebook ?

Solo 9559 can not pass the initial screen

\015 When I power up my Solo 9550 laptop, I get the Gateway Screen with the Press F2 for Set Up. I do this and everything seems to be identified correctly (I have also unplugged all peripherals in case one of them is causing problems and same thing applies). However, after it identifies componants and memory checks out ok, it says Entering Set Up and just sits there. Any ideas on what might be wrong? I have tried Reset button numerous times and have installed a new CMOS battery (just hoping) but to no avail\015

Answers :

It may be the bios.... remove the bios battery for at least ten minutes... make sure the main battery is removed
\015\012so there is NO power to the laptop for about ten minutes
\015\012 .... after you reinstall the bios battery and put the main battery back in and plug in the external power.... boot it up again.
