New CMOS Battery for Compaq Armada 7400?
Posted on 2006-04-11
Every time I turn on my Compaq Armada 7400 I get a screen that reads "The following configuration options were automatically updated: the attached RAM configuration is not supported." It then give me the options of F1: Save Changes; F2 Ignore Changes, F10: computer setup."
If I save or ignore it then boots up normally and runs fine. Interestingly, when I simply reboot the system (I'm running windows 2000) it re-starts fine and this screen does not appear. It appears on a "cold boot."
I'm wondering if the cmos battery is dying?? I've gone into the setup menu and poked around and can't find and toggles for memory. BTW it is running 128mb and hasn't been changed as long as I've had the machine. Also, the system clock is fine and there are no other symptoms.
What say ye? Also, if the cmos is no longer holding a charge do you have directions on how to replace it?
Thanks in advance!
