On your motherboard there is a small battery called a CMOS battery. It looks like a small watch battery. This battery is what keeps a small amount of electricity on the motherboard when your computer is shut off so it can keep the right time and date. So the CMOS battery is losing power, consequently your time is off. So need to get the battery changed and it will be back to normal.

Hope this helps; please don't forget to vote on this solution. Thanks.

Most probably your CMOS battery needs replacing.

Gateway MT6840 unexpectedly shut down and wouldn't


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

My clock loses time


Your cmos battery (in the notebook) is about to run out. Changing it is not so easy, so use windows time correction to keep your computer on time.

The Toshiba Tecra A8 S8413 laptop cmos battery (or capacitor?) does not seem to be working. Symptoms: I set the date and time. As long as the laptop does not sleep or go into power save mode the clock...


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.

Computer clock


Not sure if this will help as my previous experience is that the clock starts at 12:00 each time it is started up.

In my case it was a flat computer battery that keeps the BIOS active when shut down, hence it was losing all it's settings each time it was shut down.

Note: This does not explain the looping, so this answer may be one "just to try" if no other answers come up.

Laptop Clock loses time


This is a sure sign that your CMOS battery needs replacing, but you may need to take to a qualified repairer as the battery can be hard to access or even locate.
