Even i had this problem..i tried changing my battery.. but later thought it was a virus..but while it wasn't so.. it had time update on..because of which the moment it connects through net it resets the time.. you must be facing any of such problems only..try fixing your problem with changing batery only.. pen up your side panel and you will find a small battery..take out that and fix a new battery. all the old records of time and date will be automatically reset.. so this time when you swich on your computer press 'de;' to entr set up and then go to BIOS settings and there change the date and time to the normal.. i guess this helps you out.. belated Merry X-mas and Happy New Year :)

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.

Clock not accurate


Hello,

If the clock keeps on getting out - dated, the most probable cause would be the CMOS battery. It is a small circular battery that is located on the motherboard that keeps the time and of your system up to date even when it is turned off. Replace the battery and it should work fine.

Cheers!

My computer will not keep time. is there a battery that needs to be replaced to fix this.


Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the side-panel to expose the motherboard.
Look for a silver-coloured object, about the size of a US $0.25 coin.
This is the battery that helps the clock on your motherboard keep the correct time.
Look closely: one side of the battery shows engraving, and the other side (which you cannot see is blank).
Gently remove the battery.
Take the battery to a computer-store, to buy a replacement.
Press the new battery into the socket, orienting that engraving to match the engraving on the battery that you removed.
Restart your computer.
Press DEL to enter BIOS SETUP.
Click "Load BIOS defaults".
Reset the date/time.
Click "Save and Exit" from BIOS SETUP.

My computer time and date keeps resetting itself to a different time. I'm connected to the internet but that is all. Why does it do this?


the clock microchip inside you motherboard is run by a small lithium battery model # CR2032 ( the size of a small coin) this is embeded in the motherboard, this can be replaced with a new one by removing the PC's cover and looking for it on the motherboard .....once replaced the clock can be re-set to the current time....once the machine displays the Desktop screen....

How do I set my clock on my computer? It says that the time is 6:45PM when it is actually 9:36PM eastern stander time..


double click the clock/time in the system tray in the lower right of your computer screen, then click on the time zone tab and select the eastern standard time zone and tick off the box in the lower left of that box for the automatically adjust for daylight saving time, then select apply in the bottom then ok...now recheck your time..it should now read the correct time.

Clock needs to be reset every time I switch on.


There are 3 reasons for that.
  1. Your CMOS battery ran out of charge. You may have to replace it. (Note: You can check whether it has no charge by using a Muti-meter or your mouth).
  2. You are Synchronizing the Clock from a Different Time Zone. Double click on Time panel in the task bar. Go to Time Zones and check. Check the Internet Time to check whether you Synchronize with a proper Time Server. (Note: You can try to start the PC without internet and check whether the time is changing)
  3. You have installed a Patch / Crack to a Software and it resets your Timer. Probably a Patch to an Anti Virus Software, Game or any other Application. You may have to Remove it to keep the clock Steady if it matters you.
If anything gives negative results what you have to do is to check the Event Viewer for any System/ Application related errors. To get the Event Viewer: Start -> Run (or hit Win key + R) and type in Eventvwr.msc and hit Enter key. Go to System and Application and Sort them using Date / Time (usually it is the default). Then watch for errors related with the System Clock. (Note: errors are in the color of Red with an X mark. Warnings are Yellow with an ! mark). If you are unable to understand let me know. You can Copy and Paste Here.

Low battery warning


That is because while a computer is in sleep mode, it is still using power to keep the memory. The battery is only used when the computer is turned off. You should replace the battery as soon as you can in order to keep your computer running properly.

Not keeping time


Go into the BIOS by pressing F2 when you first turn on the laptop. In the main screen you should be able to change the time and date. After you do that save the changes and exit and go into windows and see if the date and time is current.

Let me know how it goes.

I have to keep resetting the clock


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
