Reading through threads you started, I don't see where anyone is being rude! Frustrated with your responses, YES!



Wishing you and yours the best!


trust me Snick I have learned a lot here, perusing one issue has often lead to me fixing 3 others never posted. but know of no other info to put in my box, and since remark was not ended with a explanation or a help or suggestion how to fix I can fathom, I perceived it as a ill response.

I have seen huge loss of civility on net forms, literal brutality, as such i thank you for your assurance and civility.

As your don't have a floppy disk drive a message comes to alert you that it hasn't been found.

What you have to do is to enter BIOS (F2) and disable the floppy drive so it won't be scanned and you won't receive the message.

Friggin huge help, Thanks huge back. old machine ? I am not sure, but plan to rip image and replace hard drive soon, praying I can get "New Mother board" as well. ha ha wish me luck.

I will get back to this change later, but graphics are great, are the best, cause they enable you to go where you have already been in sample.

your like a mind reader right?

very good question, I put new one in about 2 years ago, How ever, because i had this 7 as a often not used "Juke Box" next to some very sensitive expensive stereo equip, I un plugged it, it was off net as well, I thought that may help my amp sound better, power line here is a day time (Hash) sound disaster, its not a exaggeration, I keep amp probe handy next to wall receptical and once watched what should be 120 volts go from 112 to 129, and the meter recorded that spike. another time lights blinked and my internal amp limit switch just shut the machine off if it had been just fused I may have lost amp.

So my battery is probably poop as I told a friend yesterday, your opinion please



As well -when changing a battery is it best to leave computer "wall plugged in", which I know sounds suicidal---but how does memory preserve it self if machine is unplugged and battery is being replaced ?

also does that battery recharge it self


thanks, peace, safety and long naps

A CMOS battery normally last more than 5 years.
If your clock isn't loosing the time and date, I would say to leave as it is.
The coin battery isn't rechargeable. If you intent to replace it, my suggestion is to unplug the PS from the wall.
BIOS may loose the settings but on a Dell computer it will load the defaults and that is normally all you need.
