is the battery in backwards?
let me make some quotes:
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.
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)
