How do I determine if my computer's CMOS is totally fried? Answered
Yesterday I got a call from my wife that she was bringing the computer back up (there had been a storm and she SAI(D she shut everything down normally and unplugged everything), and she has this "message" that CMOS had failed and was loading default......press F1 to continue or F2 for set up.
Sadly, neither option actually works. It "sounds" like it is processing (looping?) but nothing happens. Turning it off, waiting and back on again produces the same results and it doesn't get far enough into the boot process to access either the CD or the HD.
Give it to me straight....it's brain dead, right?
