Hello,

My machine starts and display initial info.
However it stops at very beginning and only keep showing BIOS Revision A17.
It is held there and doesn't accept any command except the shud down button.
It doesn't even allow to enter set up.
Help urgent friends,, if any one can.

Regards
Umer

Thanks Friend!

Do u mean the small coin battery below key board?
Should i replace it with new?
or Just take it out?
or take it out and put it back inside?
or is there another rtc battery?

Hi Umer

I have the same problem with Dell Inspiron 6400. Did you resolve your problem?
Can you exactly tell me where i should look for the battery?

Thanks in advance
