Toshiba Portege R100 CMOS/BIOS PROBLEM at startup.
I am working on a Toshiba Portege R100 laptop. When I got it, the RTC batteryWas stone dead. I replaced it with a new one.When I turn the machine on, The Toshiba screen flashes on for1 or 2 seconds, then it goes to either one of two different screens. One screen says ( RTC battery is low or CMOS checksum is inconsistent !! ) Press F1 KEY to set DATE/TIME. If I hit F1, I go into the BIOS, but can do nothing at all in there. The other screen I get , once again, at startup, the Toshiba screen flashes on for 1 or 2 seconds, then it goes to a DOS LIKE screen, but only displays 8 or 9 characters i
