I have a 1998-99 (a guess) era computer (mobo MS 6117 version 1.1 LX6) that I’m trying to put back together and get working. This computer was given to me (I have no documentation). The mobo does have 2 USB ports so that may help determine the age of the computer…just a thought.
Here’s a concern of mine if I can get the mobo and everthing else hooked up correclty (the mobo was only partially attached to the case when I go it)…The CMOS battery is gone!! This means the CMOS settings have not been saved.
And that means the computer is not going to know how to configure the computer if and when I get it put back together.
As a result, it’s not going to be able to boot the computer until the “settings” are restored.
Any good advice for me (other than saying dump it)?
What can I do? I’d really like to get this thing going again.
