BIOS problem? Need help figure this out...

  1. Good Morning,
    I've never experience this problem before so I'm confused. The PC running windows 7 would not turn on untill I remove the battery and put it back it. This will cause to reset settings and also I would get a low battery warning..so I though if I change the battery it will resolve this problem but it didnt...I put in a new battery and still have to remove battery and then I can turn it on....I have reset bios to factory settings and I dont know what else to try....there are no BIOS software compatible with win7 so im kinda stuck.

    can anyone help with this?
    Thank You

    Hi! thanks for reply....I though it would be reset once you remove the battery for a minute?
