    Hey all. I have an "Lappower" P II 233mhz with 32mb ram and 3gb hd.

    and my probs with it is that every time ill turn it off and then on it forgets its hd so i have to press f2 @ boot to enter bios and set hd as user.

    and if i dont do it it says cant fin os
    WHY does it "forget" the hd settings everytime ? and it is just the hd not clock ore something ells like date ..

    Welcome to the boards nebelosa!

    Yep that's the CMOS battery allright. If you're in Sweden (since you got a Lappower) you could probably get a new one at Elfa.
