My Dell dimension 4300 will not power up..ONLY when the cmos battery is installed!! When I take out the battery it powers up ok. I replaced the battery and the same problem. I did not mess with the jumpers on the mobo. Just removed the battery for a day and the power cable was detached so no power was available. Any Ideas what may be causing this?

let me make some quotes:

That's O.K.

 

When I take out the battery it powers up ok.

uuuhhhhhh.....hmmmmm Take your time, relax and try to repost what's really going on

 

I replaced the battery and the same problem.

Can't tell what the problem really is....Are you stating it will not post with a new battery? do you see a Dell logo when you first power it up and windows not starting?

I think that may be your issue. Go into the bios and reset date/time. Then set the drive parameter as an IDE drive instead of sata. When your pc resets the bios, the Dell bios defaults to sata (AHCI)
