I replaced the cmos battery a few days ago, and now the laptop won't boot. The power comes on, the USB ports get power (mouse lit up), fan starts, HD starts for a few secs, then stops, screen stays blank. There are no beeps.
I have an averatec 6115. I don't know the motherboard type and I've searched for some info, but nothing came up. I have 512MB, 80Gb HD, Sempron 3100, SISM760 on board GFX.
I have looked for a jumper switch, NONE.
I have checked the battery voltage. OK (3V)
I have taken the battery out for 30 mins, and tried putting it back in. DIDN'T WORK.
I am lost on what to do. Can I make a boot CD and boot into BIOS or DOS to change settings? Will that help if I can? Is there anything else I can do? PLease help. Thanks
