Hi, This is my first post but have used Bleeping Computer before to resolve various problems without posting. So thanks in advance !
OK Here goes. I have a old Dell 8400 running Windows XP (Runs at 3.2 M with 4 g's of memory. It runs very reliably and have had little problems.
Recently, on start up, I received a message that the 'System Battery is low press F-1 to continue' I read on the forum the details on how to hot swap the mother board battery. I did so and that went off without a hitch. But with the new Battery in place, I still get the same message on start up telling me that the battery is low as mentioned above. I've eliminated the obvious; incorrectly placed battery, old battery; battery seems tight in battery socket.
I'm stumped as to what to do next. Anyone have any ideas as to what my next action should be to eliminate this message ?
