    Make sure the battery is the right type and in the right direction.
    If so,set the CMOS reset jumper to claer for 5 seconds and back to run.
    Do it with the power off.

    thank guys for replyin.

    fisrt of all i`ll try and see if he has the original batt.
    secondly the new batt spec is a 3volt cr2032 + on top and - on bot and it only fits one way as it has to latch on to lock in position.
    like i said i`ll try original batt if he`s still got it and post back later .

    thanks again
