How come I need to keep going into my BIOS to tell my computer to boot from IDE? 

by on November 9, 2012

Q: Windows 7 Home Premium
Processor: Pentium(R) Dual-Core E5300 @ 2.60GHz 1.60 GHz
64-bit OS

My problem seems to be a hardware issue. My desktop runs just fine while it is on and everything seems to be okay.

The OS is an upgrade version of Win7 and it is installed on an 80GB IDE hard drive. I also have a 500GB SATA drive that holds all of my regular stuff. The reason I have the OS on the IDE is again, because it was an upgrade from an older computer. Otherwise, I’d rather have it running on the SATA.

Where I run into my issue is when I shut-off/restart the computer. On boot, the PC doesn’t recognize the drive to boot to Windows. I have to go into BIOS each time to set it boot to the IDE drive. Once the computer sees the drive, it boots up just fine and runs great.

Do you know what my problem is? Any help would be amazing.

How come my computer keeps going back to Post after installing more RAM? 

by on September 22, 2012

Q: I have a Acer Aspire NAV50 (532h-2588 running Genuine Windows 7 Starter. It has been running well on 1GB of RAM but when I try to upgrade it to 2GB (which the bios sees just fine) it cycles back to the Post after trying to boot to windows. If I put the old stick back in … it works fine. I even upgraded to Win 7 E and it still does the same when using the 2GB stick. This is the memory that Acer recommended for this model. Any thoughts?

How come my motherboard does not keep the time correctly even after changing the battery? 

by on February 14, 2012

Q: I recently acquired a Motherboard with a problem.
The Clock/calendar does not operate and changes made in the BIOS will not save.
I replaced the battery and tested battery socket and determined that battery-voltage is getting to BIOS chip. I can not find any bad solder connections at IC.
The Mobo jumper is in proper location.
I think the BIOS IC is defective but was wondering you knew of anything else that could cause this problem?
