    Hi, I have just replaced the motherboard in my nc6320 hp laptop.
    Bios revision f08.
    Chip t5600 1.8 dual core
    2 gigs ram
    New cmos battery.

    Will not load to w7, which is still on drive, will not reinstall windows xp or 7 32bit.

    I can't find a way to alter time and date in bios, is there a manual way to do this (using dos or command prompts?).

    Have no idea on flashing a bios on a laptop, but believe the current bios is upto date.

    Totally flummoxed, I thought the hard part was over.:confused:

    Have you tried to set the bios to load default settings or "Load Bios Defaults" , "Load Setup Defaults" , "Safe Settings", "Load Optimized Defaults",
    You say you have replaced the motherboard. You will need to goto the bios and carry out the above

    On my bios, it's restore defaults and it didn't help. Still won't load to windows, after showing 163 time and date not set.

    Ok, i used windows repair option, when this failed, i used advanced system restore options and opened command prompt.

    i typed: date 04-18-10

    enter

    then typed: time 21:09:00

    enter

    This fixed the problem. :)
