I dont think it is the battery anymore because nothing else seems to be effected, time and date are correct and other bios settings are holding. I checked the HD and it appears that neither of my HD's are the boot disk anymore. Not sure how this would get changed, I have not added any new drives. I did what Rainey suggested and it appears I might have to do a repair boot up files. Just not sure if this would fix it since the computer boots up just fine if I pick what I know to be the boot drive but after I pick it and select it in the bios it does the same thing again.
so will have to try the repair boot files.
ok little confused. I checked the drives in disk managment and this is what it shows
l ayout type file system status
(C:) simple basic NTFS Healthy(boot, page file,crashdump,pimary partition)
simple basic NTFS healthy (primary partition)
simple basic NTFS healthy (system, active, primary partition)
ok than shows Disk 0 as new volume healthy primary partition
Disk1 as system reserved( system, active, primary partition) in a box than second box next to it (C:) healthy(boot, page file, crash dump, primary partition).
OK i assume the disk 1 is the main HD with part partitioned out for reserved part
just dont know what would cause my system to loose what was the boot drive.
