Hello, I apologize for the delay. I have seen battery issues cause a lot of computer logic issues. I would recommend to disconnect the positive and negative battery terminals, jump the two cables together and keep this way for at least ten minutes. Make sure and do not come in contact with the battery post when doing this. Try this out and reply back to me with the results. Thanks for letting me help, Mr. B

just touch positive negative cables...
Expert:  mr. b. rector replied 1 year ago.
Correct, either jump the two cables together with a wire connected to each cable end or if they will reach each other, just hold them together for about ten minutes, again make sure they do not contact a battery post when doing this. Computers sometimes can get a logic issue when there has been a battery voltage issue, doing this resets the computer, just like a computer at home. Mr. B
