I am not sure how the CMOS battery would have any effect on the monitor turning on. It will have reset the BIOS defaults though, so perhaps some setting had been changed.


Navigate (right click Computer, left click Open/Explore) to the following folder:

c:\windows\minidump

And if one is there, locate in it any recent minidump(date-somenumber).dmp files created, where "date-somenumber" matches dates of any recent crashes there. If they exist, then just zip a copy of it, and send it to jintan AT malwarecrypt.com as an attachment. Please place "Submitted Files - Krishnaa - g2g dmp" as the email Subject.

I read over here that removing the CMOS battery will help: http://www.pchelpfor...rning-on.57078/ It did seem to solve the problem, for some reason.

There is a low voltage problem here and the computer keeps getting switched off because of it. I'm currently on my laptop. I shall send you the mail as soon as I'm able to switch it on.

I've sent the mail. There was only one file in the minidump folder.

I received the dump file, thanks. Some excerpts of the analysis:

SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED_M (1000007e)

SYMBOL_NAME: bthport!BthLib_CheckForFreBuild+0

FOLLOWUP_NAME: MachineOwner

MODULE_NAME: bthport

IMAGE_NAME: bthport.sys


But did removing the CMOS battery, which would likely restore the BIOS to it's default settings, solve the problem?

Yes, it did solve the problem of the monitor not booting up. But the DLL error is still there, of course.

All that shows of possible significance here is a BIOS update.

Go to Start Search, type msinfo32 in the Start Search box. Msinfo32 will appear at the top of the Menu. Rightclick on it and choose "Run as administrator".

Post back what shows for the BIOS version please.

Should I install an update from there?

Currently under msinfo32 it says "Inter Corp. TCIBX10H.86A.0037.2010.0614.1712, 14/6/2010" under BIOS Version/Date.

Use this BIOS update, which is dated 12/6/2011. Download and run TCIBX10H.86A.0048.EB.EXE, which includes the installer. Be sure to close everything before beginning, and reboot after.

Yes, why not try again. Seems like little chance of a tie in, but check anyway. And post back if the hotplug issue still exists please.
