I been notice that every time I unplug the power cable on my Vostro 400 the system reset the BIOS for some reason without moving the jumper or removing battery from the motherboard. Is this a factory issue or there is a way to fix this? I'm asking because I have a friend that has a Vostro 200 and it has the same issue.
The motherboard battery is dead and needs to be replaced.
CR2032 3-volt coin cell battery, ~US$2.00 at discount stores. Read and follow the directions in the manual to replace the battery.
