Well...antoher start up problem from me
a laptop..runnign Win 98, 2 gig hard drive 64 meg Ram has this prob..
everytime its started up after being off for more than what? 10-20 mins the Time has to be reset everyttime..asin :
you get an errro message as the first thing you see...you have to reset the time...you reset it...it goes on until background of desktop is displayed then you are prompted to restart after which eveyrhting goes fine
my guess is that the CMOS needs reseting...the problem being i dont know my way around the inside a laptop..so..anyways .
.is there any other way of rectifing this other than a manual discharge..if no then should i attempt to discharge it myself?
oh and im guessin the battery is just shot abotu thsi too but the battery carge last about 1% for every minute
