Even a new computer could have a bad CMOS/motherboard battery and you should be able to replace the battery yourself for about $5. A bad battery will create a problem where BIOS settings will fail to be "remembered". See the link below:
How To Replace The CMOS Battery In Your PC(Procedures and Pictures)
After replacing the CMOS battery, if you continue to have problems with the BSky wireless adapter, please remember that third party devices need to bring their own drivers to the party.. Windows frequently doesn't have them on the computer..Therefore, visit the wireless adapter manufacturer's website and download and install the driver for the USB device.. (Usually, there is a CD that accompanies the adapter and that CD should contain the needed drivers. Use the CD if you have it.. If not, the manufacturer's website should have the newest version.)
Hope this helps.
I have a number of problems going on right now with my niece's desktop.
Firstly and more annoyingly, it just shuts down when it wants to. When I first booted it up it said that it had a low battery voltage and to pick F1 to continue on or F2 to config. It's a new Dell so I looked up this problem on line since I had never seen that before.
Turns out it's one of two things or both.
One. It doesn't like some surge protectors and you have plug it into the wall or a better more high end version.
Two. The battery on the mother board is the problem. It can be loose or needs to be replaced. There were a high number of issues with the batteries from Dell lately. So it's believed that they got a bad batch.
Now that was just FYI. Now I'm looking for an answer to the name of this post. I plugged in a GSky USB wireless adapter and of course the computer wanted to install it, but this computer hasn't been on line since we got it a month or so ago.
So I let it look for drivers hoping that they were all ready on the computer, but they weren't. Then I did a dumb thing. I saw the balloon notice with the question if I wanted to stop any further notices of finding this hardware. I said yes thinking that I could just go to the device manager and see it there once I got the drivers on my usb drive to install the wireless adapter.
No dice. I can't find this anywhere. So my question is how do I turn back on, what I turned off and shouldn't have?
Has anyone come across this problem and know how to fix it?
