Hello,my machine was having trouble loading the bios,so i removed the cmos  
battery and cleaned it,and when i put it back,the machine behaved as if  
the power cord had been pulled,completely dead.So then i removed the  
battery,and it turned on with a battery warning ,circumventable by loading  
default cmos settings with F2.Why does the battery in place,even if dead  
,kill the machine like that?And can i go on forever using F2 if this  
problem persists even with a new battery (which i haven't tried  
yet)?Thanks for any ideas,michael
