I wanted to get my back-up PC(ZT Affinity w\ core i-7 cpu) working since I haven't used it since I bought my Gateway w\ a second gen i-7 CPU) so I could install Win-8 on it. Unfortunately it's
intermittent as sometimes it won't boot at all or it will boot all the way but takes forever to do so. I don't know if it's because a problem that developed when the movers packed it a few weeks ago or because I haven't used it for over a year.
I tried to boot it from a WSin 7 rescue disk that I created from the control panel but it didn't help.
Can someone give me advice on what to do?
Btw, what are the symptoms if a CMOS battery is either going bad or is bad?
