    Identify maker and model and version and look for support at maker's website. You want to start with the MANUAL. Read thoroughly.

    You are welcome...and I am sure you would not have appreciated my first thought.. ("You'll let the air out.") but I suppressed it in time (almost).

    Actually, pulling the battery causes a system reset on most motherboards - and then you need the manual to correct the settings.

    Which is why it is a good idea to read the manual first.
