Yes, this battery maintains the laptop BIOS information including the date and time. If the time slows down it indicates the battery is nearly flat and needs replacing.

Rtc battery is low or cmos checksum is inconsistent


The RTC battery is a rechargeable Li-ion "clock" battery that's buried underneath the keyboard - it keeps date and time going when your computer is turned off. If you're getting this message, you should go follow the screen prompt, hit F1 to enter Setup, and set the date and time, leave the computer on for several hours to charge it (the clock battery recharges only with the computer turned on) and it should go away.

In the rare event that your RTC battery is bad, it's really up to you as to getting it replaced or not - it's a lotta work, and not all the battery vendors out there is competent enough to sell you the right kind of battery (installing a non-rechargeable Lithium battery will kill the thing outright, and there are actually people selling these....). Not having a working RTC battery doesn't really interfere with the workings of the computer - you'll just have to set date and time every time you start it, and you can do so manually or by downloading some freeware such as Atomic Clock Sync to automatically do it for you.

How do you make it work with the 9 volt battery?


The 9-volt battery is a backup battery. It will keep the clock running and the alarm working when the power goes off so you won't be late for work.

The clock on my laptop keeps setting to zero when I shut down. It seem to happen after a windows update. I'm running vista. Can anyone give me a solution. I have to keep putting the computer to sleep...


It sounds like your CMOS battery is dead. The CMOS battery keeps the date and time current as well as your BIOS settings when power has been turned off to the system. Check your system for the current type of battery your Toshiba uses. It either uses a disc type of battery that sits in a socket, or it has a disc type that is in a covering and attaches to the motherboard via a small cable.

Clock Issue


I would recommend getting your laptop professional cleaned first before trying to replace your battery.

Replacing your battery on laptops is not always an easy task and can require several hours of labor.

It sounds like the battery on your computer is dying, and the battery cannot keep the clock running. If Dell's warranty is still valid, contact Dell, to get your computer fixed/replaced.

The RTC (Real Time Clock) battery charges when the computer in on (operating). You can plug the electrical cord in and let the computer run for 24 hours by temporarily suspending any sleep mode or automatic power saving features. This should sufficiently charge the RTC battery.

System time clock looses time


hello
here is a guide to disassemble the laptop
http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-A105/remove-motherboard-1.htm
Some motherboards have the battery soldered on ,i am not sure if yours is or not ,the batteries usually look like watch batteries.
you could always get a quote from an authorised toshiba support agent if you are uncomfortable opening the laptop.

The information on the hard drive will not be lost as it is saved on the hard drive itself.

My laptop freezes often and clock stops running


i would recommend a fresh install of windows and if that doesn't solve your problem then check that your processor isn't loose and while you check inside the laptop give it a good hoovering to get rid of any dust. i think maybe it freezes because it gets too hot so i would recommend hoovering inside and buying a laptop cooling platform off ebay (fans that the laptop sits on.

I have a e system desktop the clock keeps running late


Computers have an internal battery on the motherboard that helpd the board retain certain data when the computer is off. If the battery is low or dead it will cause this problem. The easiest way to replace the battery is to open the side of the computer when it is off and remove the battery from the battery holder on the motherboard. The battery looks just like a watch battery. Replace it with the same kind of battery (available at most drug stores) once you have replaced it turn on your computer and reset your clock.
