    No CMOS access after battery change Phoenix/Asus desktop.

    For time sake, I put a screenshot on a free photo host site at:
    [​IMG]

    Hope the IMG shows.

    anyway... That's the only screen on startup, tried holding "delete", F10, and F1. Nothing happens.

    This is an older desktop but my beloved beast. running VistaPro.

    I really don't want to dig into my harddrive jumpers if I can avoid it.

    Sincerly, Thanks for any help.

    I must be getting old, used to do PC tech help a decade ago.

    The solution was too easy.
    When CMOS went to default, it ignored my wireless keyboard, thus nothing worked.
    Plugged in an old standard wired keyboard and got access.
    I feel so dumb. Lol
    Disregard my plea for help.
