    Please Help

    Hi there.

    I am having issues with a M10000 that I recently won on Ebay that I am told was tested before listing, however I am having a problem even getting in to BIOS.

    I have tried two different sticks of RAM and I have slao tried two different PSU's. And finally I have tried two or three different HDD's and re-moved CD/DVD etc. When HDD and/or DVD drive are connected it see them connected on POST.

    I can't see all the error on the screen as it cuts off some of the meesage on the left handside of the screen. But before it finishes POST it shows:

    system error - Defaults loaded
    has been changed
    master COU settings in the CMOS setup and remember before quit!

    Continue, DEL to enter SETUP



    I then press DELETE and the screen then goes all pixel-ated, but only in the colours associated with BIOS ie bluy, yellow, white. And then nothing happens???

    Try replacing the CMOS battery.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    I have just tried a different battery in it and no change I will buy a new battery just incase.. not expensive


    One thing that I have tried... when the screen goes strange when I think that I am in BIOS I pressed F10, F11, F12 and then ENTER. To emulte that I have been in BIOS and saved changes, it then re-boots. After then splash screen instead of it showing the error it just stays as a black screen.

    The only way to stop it is to clear CMOS and then i'm back to the begining
