    Default Bios question

    Hello lall it seems when i restart my pc after its been off awhile its like it resets the bios to default.
    if i go in and reset everything and then reboot its fine but if i leave it off a while and come back and turn it on it has reset to default again .
    I was thinking it was probably the cmos battery does that sound right to you guys it will be this coming weekend before i can get one .
    Just wondering what you all think thanks in advace .

    I would say it's the battery. Does the computer have any power running to it when it's off, or do you cut it off?

    If you don't cut the power off, that will be a temporary fix. It would probably be best, though, to replace the battery.

    If it's the same size and voltage, it should work. I think they are all 1.4V.
