when i try and boot i get as far as the irq allocation/pci screen then
instead of seeing the windows xp screen after, i just get a black screen and
nothing further happens. if i try safe mode or any other option i get the
same result.

if i then clear cmos and reset the time etc i am then able to get it started
if i choose the option to boot from the last known good configuration.

i am using xp pro and have not added any new hardware for some months.

thanks in advance for any help

Hi,

Sounds like the motherboard batter has died. Check the system
documentation on how to replace it.

Loosing CMOS setting is the warning. Or should I say symptom.

Sorry to say, most hardware dies without warning. Disk drives may grind a
