How would the battery of the motherboard affect the PC?
 
Every motherboard has a battery. If the battery were to run out eventually, what would be the consequence? How will this affect the PC?

You'd lose all user defined information (like date/time) and force the PC to re-assess the Auto settings every time it reboots. In rare cases it might prevent a post, and/or cause general mahem......

well said sswilson took the words out of mouth

also boot time is longer due to defaults set (auto) and if SLI system would not see it

Heh... I initially considered using the phrase "higildey pigiley" to describe the generally random chaotic acts which can occur from a failed battery, but realised I had absolutely no idea how to spell it, and that a dictionary wasn't likely to help.... ;)

edit: Well.... what do you know.... ;)

You know, the wonderful thing about tabbed browsing is that you can look this sort of thing up while you're writing a response :rofl:
