Hey all,

I recently reset my CMOS. What I noticed after I restarted my computer was that all my default fonts for all my applications had changed. For example, in Firefox, everything would be bolded when they weren't originally. And, in some other programs, like AIM, my whole buddy list would be italicized. I don't know why this happened and how to set it back to normal. Anyone have any ideas? Thank you.

Clearing the CMOS just resets all bios settings to default. It shouldn't have messed up your fonts =/

That is quite strange. I went on Google and couldn't find any similar instances. :thumbsup:

My computer, too, is giving me a CMOS error and prompts me to hit F1 or F2. The keyboard or mouse is not recognized. It also tells me CMOS setting are wrong and the CMOS checksum is bad.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

CMOS Battery Replacement - http://www.liverepair.com/encyclopedia/art...cmosreplace.asp

Ignore the part about writing down settings, unnecessary.

CR2032 battery, available anywhere, cost is less than $5.
