  1. I have a vintron PC. It is 7 years old. Fews days back i had a power failure, after that when ever i am opening the PC, its showing this error.- CMOS checksum error, default reloaded.When i press F1 key go, all the disk are checked. File system C FAT 32 disks shows inconsistency & disk is checked. After that when i log on to windows, the line "loading your personal settings" comes but desktop never opens. It goes back to press F1 or DEl.. THe computer is opening in safe mode. ALl the wires r intact. kindly suggest me. thanks

    The battery is located somewhere on the motherboard. You can consult your manual or open your case and look for it. It is a flat round type of battery, a silver colored disk. Remove it and compare it to the new battery to make sure it is the right one. Installation is the reverse of removal.
