Cannot get BIOS setting change to "take" on IBM NetVista

Discussion in 'PC Hardware' started by Richard Vaughn, May 26, 2004.

  1. Hello All:

    In the BIOS of an IBM NetVista running XP I am setting
    the floppy drive to 3.5-inch/1.44Mb, but the save doesn't "take".
    It keeps returning to 5.25-inch.

    Is there something/somewhere that can keep a BIOS setting change
    from taking?

    Thanks in advance,
    -Richard Vaughn

  2. Try new CMOS battery. Are you saving on exit? Try resetting BIOS with clear
    jumper.

    MIke.
