755 SFF, wont go beyond BIOS start


My Optiplex 755 will not go beyond the BIOS loading stage. It says Press F1 to continue, F2 for Setup and F5 for system diagnostics. None of these 3 options work and then when I press any of the option keys a beep sound is heard. 

THe exact message is "System Battery Voltage is low. Press F1 to continue, F2 for Setup, and F5 for System Diagnostics." This problem did not occur earlier only now its not going forward.


Yours sincerely,

Re: Optiplex 755 SFF Wont go beyond BIOS start

It won't ever boot again until you replace the DL2032 battery.

These systems fail to boot when the battery is bad.  I can get these at the grocery store because blood sugar meters use the same battery.

Once battery is replaced and CMOS reset it will be ok unless there are other physical issues.
