Two possibilities for this are
  • Another low battery
  • Possible corrupted bios


What is the make and model of the system? I can check to see if there has been a issue with the date and time with the system and if there is a resolution for it.

Asus 1005 HA

I didn't replace the battery yet. I did open it yesterday. The battery is quite different than the pic u posted yesterday. This one is wrapped in rubber and has positive and negative wiring with a white plastic connector piece that inserts into the female end on the motherboard. I fiddled with it trying to unplug it from the MB and the end piece of the battery (white plastic) broke off so I couldn't remove it. I called a repair shop and they said to tape it down with electrical tape and it should stay in place.No biggy. If I have to replace the battery I'll just take it over to a shop where they have the tools to remove the stuck piece of plastic.

OK that is the newer type and though it looks different on the outside it is the same battery on the inside. The connections are different but that is ok.
Yep with that old battery you will continue to get the error message until you replace it.

A computer shop should have the battery in stock. Disconnect the battery from the mobo and take it to the shop. They should be able to match it up for you. If not they should be able to tell you where to get one.

It's ok. I'll email Asus and ask them to give me the part number and then try to find one locally. I'll check back
