This is either an issue with the CMOS batter which may need to be changed, I have seen this error on thinkpads and one way of resolving it is to install an older BIOS, you can download a BIOS from your machine and install it using there instructions

Hope this helps

Presario 1275 win xp sp2 restore and system recovery disks


The presario 1275 was made in 1999, and it is more than likely the CMOS battery. this was the problem on a unit I recently repaired.

Replace the CMOS battery. If you are inclined to do it yourself, you should be able to find instructions online to disassemble the laptop yourself. when you do the job, be careful with the metal heat shield plate. It has many grounding tapes which should be re-secured when re-assembling the unit.

You should be able to find a replacement at Radio Shack (CR1220).

You have to download XP drivers from the manufacturer's website. This normally happens because your harware was designed for the new OS(Vista).

Just go to hp.com and search for the model of your Laptop.

How Do I upgrade my laptop from W98 to Wxp?


Hi,

Most laptops with the original Microsoft OS has a sticker underneath with the 25 character code. That would be what you need for Win98 assuming that it is the original OS installed in the laptop.

For the new OS (Win XP), the new code would come either with the CD installer or on a sticker.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
