I have to keep resetting the clock

..I feel that there is a short somewhere. I want this issue resolved because I feel there is a greater problem and this computer is just 3 months old.

Like right now, the clock says 12:46pm when it is actually 3:46pm.
I had to reset it approx. 3 days ago. And, this is ongoing.

I have an Acer X Series 1200/3200. That is the info listed on the pamphlet.
Thanks

The cmos battery inside the PC has run out, all you have to do is remove the side panel and look inside at the "motherboard" you will see a battery there, take it out and replace it with a new one, put the side panel back on and set the time and date and it should keep time from then on

hope this helps

kind regards

Why does my bissell vacuum keep shocking me


Likely you have a short in the wiring somewhere. If you have a powerhead with a power cord that runs through the vacuum hose that might be the problelm. Check your cords closely. Is it possible you are just getting a static elecricity shock due to dry weather? If you think you are getting a shock, stop using the product until you have resolved the issue.

Sony IFC-218 clock radio runs 8-9 minutes fast


Hold the 'Clock' button until the display flashes. It will first show the year, next press on 'Clock' with show the month, then the day, then the time. Use + and - to set your time and press 'Clock' again.

Don't expect this clock to set the time by itself. It is not an atomic clock.

2006 Murano the clock keeps reseting itself back to 1:00 every two or three days... Any suggestions


Sounds like you may have a short somewhere or a problem with your battery connection. I would check the battery connection first then check behind the deck. If you still have a problem you may need to chase down the short. Good luck!

1999 a4 horn keeps going off when i turn wheel mainly.


Check your clock spring, and the retainer it's in, if the retainer piece has come apart, it will short somewhere. This can be a very frustrating problem. Take off the airbag and remove steering wheel, then carefully pull steering wheel and check clock spring. Also check horn pad for any foreign object like a screw that could short.

My relay switch keeps tripping and resetting when the key is on, resulting in a draw on the battery and funny running until the battery is dead. I replaced the key ignition but the problem is still there.


You have a dead short somewhere in your wiring. You need to track down the short to resolve this issue. Start by determining which breaker keeps tripping. If it is the main breaker the fault will most likely be in the wires coming from the ignition switch the rest of the breakers. If it is the breaker with gray wire from the ignition switch it will be in the ignition/starting wiring. If it is the breaker that is connected to the gray wire from the ignition switch through a brass bridge bar the short will be found in the horn, turn signal, warning lights, or brake light circuits. If it is the breaker that is connected to the green wire ignition switch it will be in the running lights circuit.
