Inspiron laptop clock occasionally reverts to July 2008


There is a small 3 volt battery on the motherboard which is the backup for the circuit clock .So if the battery has gone low in voltage the clock will be reset as the CMOS setting will be reset. The clock will then go back to the time of the laptop set-up which is in july 2008.
Replacing and then correcting the CMOS set- up on booting will set the clock to work to the current time/date.

I have an Averatec 5400 laptop. It will not hold its cmos settings. Everytime it boots up it reverts to January 2003 and I have to reset the settings. Any help would be appreciated.


You need to replace the CMOS battery. This will be under a "Flap" under the laptop. It is a small round thin Cell. 3.6 v similar to a Watch battery. link below to see what I mean. http://www.alllaptops.co.uk/Cmosbatt/Averatec.htm

I have a satellite A105 and When i turn it on it asks for password but I don't have the password. So how to I get past this to be able to use it again?


just remove the cmos battery

the bios stores the password and the cmos battery provides it power to store it

if you remove cmos battery the bios reverts to factory settings and the password is removed

cmos battery is different than the laptop backup battery

cmos battery is found inside the laptop case on the motherboard, you will have to open the laptop to remove the cmos battery

Hi,

cmos battery is what keeps you system date. It sound like the cmos battery might be bad. If it's under warrenty I would definitely send it back. less headache to try to troubleshoot yourself.

Not boot from factory CD -where is CMOS battery?


Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Based on your post/description:
  • Toshiba Satellite 1415-S173;
  • new HDD;
  • would install WinXP.
Your concerns are:
  • media/cable fault;
  • CMOS battery;
  • laptop battery.
  • will not complete format;
  • will not install OS (WinXP).
Proposed course of action and other ideas:
  1. double check the new HDD, verify that the pins are not bent and are seated correctly. If all else fails, return the new HDD and have it replaced;
  2. try partitioning/formatting the new HDD in another PC using a 2.5 IDE to USB external adapter;
  3. clean the lens of the DVD/CD ROM drive;
  4. remove the dead laptop battery and use only the AC power when installing;
  5. most current laptops do not use a CMOS battery;
  6. if you want to revert CMOS/BIOS settings to default, it could be done by pressing on ESC or F1 or as indicated in the display (depends on the version) and set all possible settings to default. Verify that it is set to boot from the CD drive.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

two things possibly, first, the cmos battery is flat causing cycling reboots, or you need to press and hold the power button while its booting up to turn it off to bring it out of restart
