Good Evening All,
Getting ready to change the board battery. Read the "How To" section, but might not be understanding. I went into set up mode to write down the BIOS settings, but not sure what I'm to be writing down. The only thing I see that refers to BIOS is the Core v6.0 and Revision 3.0 5/2002. Is there something I'm missing?
Thanks Much,
Victoria

There's no need to write down CMOS settings, that's an instruction that used to be necessary long ago.

When the battery is replaced properly, the CMOS defaults (designed to assure system boot) will take over.

Then you boot into the BIOS...set the data and time and save all changes...hit F10 or whatever to save the changes...and you should be good.

Louis,
Again, THANKS MUCH. Saved me the cost of seeing the local computer geek. So far, so good. Did some of the things that would cause the crashes and it's been fine.
Be Blessed,
Victoria
