    hi,
    i had the system switch off. and unplugged. in the morning when i plug it back in, it comes up with an error in the bios, the date/time etc... is not set. i had to go in and set the time again, once it is set, it bootup fine, until it get's to the window's and it keep resetting itself.

    anyone have any suggestion to why the bios got reset? the battery is dead?

    right now i'm trying to get into safe mode to disable the "automatically restart" so i can see if the window reset is cause by the blue-screen-of-death.

    I'm betting that you have a bad CMOS battery...
