I just changed my CMOS battery and now my computer screen is jumping all over the place, like the fine tuner is messed up! I wore a static wrap, rubber gloves and I turned off the computer. I even reset my date & Time, and checked my monitor cables to see if they were lose, but their OK. Any ideas on why my computer screen is jumping around? I even checked the battery to see if it was good, and cleaned the battery, it's OK! Please help!

When you take out the motherboard battery for a length of time, the BIOS returns to default settings.
First, did you reset the date and time in the BIOS. Does your computer have onboard video or a video card? did it used to have onboard video, but you added a video card?
Also check you refresh rate in the monitor's properties

I took out a battery that I had found in the house and put a brand new battery in and now it works fine, so far! I did reset the date & time.
