comment Fujitsu Amilo D7830 Laptop frequently won't boot
The CMOS batter is, now, as flat as a pancake - but the machine has been sitting in a cupboard with no main battery for the best part of two years, and didn't show any of the normal symptoms of a flat CMOS battery when the above problem first started occurring. I thought that wouldn't prevent it from booting anyway, just cause it to lose its settings each time power was lost?
