I have a Biostar TA785GE 128M motherboard. I bought it brand new and I remember the first few times I used it it didnt give me any problems. But now when I turn my PC on it makes a low beep and it says "CMOS Battery low" and "System date/timre not set" or something like that, I can still boot into windows by pressing f2, it says "press f2 to load defaults and continue", also about 30% of the times my PC would show no signal on the screen, When that happens I have to power it off and then back on for it to work.However when I can go into windows I can do everything normally, I can even game with no problem for HOURS and I get no problems. The only problem is when I power it on, Anyone know how I can fix this CMOS problem ? Is my mobo defected ? Thanks

Try replacing the motherboard battery, which is what I'd think CMOS Battery low would mean.

Hi.

Like Lmeow says, the problem is the battery of ur mobo. Buy a new one, replace the current battery and ur problem will be solved.

Check ur current battery to know the reference of the battery that u need to buy, usually is CR2032.
