    Unhappy Toshiba T3200 issue

    Hi. I hope someone can give me some good advice. I have an old unit, a Toshiba T3200 Laptop. Heavy as all hell, but this is not the issue. I receive the following errors on this laptop:

    **** Error in CMOS. Bad Check Sum ****
    *** Error in CMOS. Bad memory size ***
    Check system. Then, press [F1] key .....
    Warning: Default setupwill be set into CMOS memory.

    Hit F1

    "When I hit F1 this is what I get next"

    Bad or missing command interpreter


    What is the issue? Bad CMOS battery possibly?

    Any Help is appreciated
    Thanks

    I have the same startup problem with CMOS except I get
    **** Error in CMOS. Bad Battery **** as well.

    The "Bad or missing command interpreter" should indicate that there is no COMMAND.COM in you root directory. You should be able to use a bootdisk to access the HD and maybe reinstall the OS.

    After searching the entire net for T3200 I found ways to get into the BIOS for almost every other computer on the planet but not the T3200. But stubborn as I am I tested all kinds of key combinations and the one that worked was: Ctrl+Alt+F10 - not much to change except what HD you have, installed memory and if you have an external display card.

    I'd really like to max my T3200 out, but I guess the only way to do that is to look for damaged machines for spare parts...
