Before we ordered the CMOS battery, we tried to connect an old pc(that was stored because it had a similar problem) to this monitor. It started one time. We traded CMOS batteries and now neither computer works, no matter what battery combo we use. Although we haven't added a new battery to the old pc, because it's really old and we'd rather fix this one...
What can we do now?
It is an Acer Aspire AM1100-U1302A
connected to a Samsung monitor
with a BFGTech Video card, that the monitor is connected directly to
I replaced a Newsun lithium CR2032 3v battery with a Maxell lithium CR2032 3v battery and installed it with the positive side up
Have now put a new battery in the old pc and it doesn't work either. Tried resetting the little blue jumper thing for the battery on the newer pc and it still won't start either.
Okay, got it fixed by myself. It appears that when I first took out the jumper for the cmos battery, I didn't put it back in right.
