Yes, Laptops do have a battery for the BIOS. That maybe what kicked off
the problems in the first place.

That did occur to me when I saw the thread. My son's new motherboard
seemed completely unusable, sometimes the BIOS would see the drives,
sometimes not. Much of the time the POST wouldn't complete, even with
nothing attached to the board.

Putting in a new battery and making sure the CMOS was cleared at the
same time fixed it. Not a bit of trouble in several years since.
