Question about Computers & Internet
Please make sure that you change the onboard battery as it is the problem for making your bios lose the time. Also note that later on it might lose other settings such as hard drive settings etc.
To change your battery
1. Please refer to the manufacturer's manual of the motherboard ... you can download a pdf version of the manual from the website of the motherboard.
2. Locate the battery and make sure it's powered off and the power chord is out of the Power supply.
3. Remove the battery using a delicate plastic lever of the size of a tiny screw driver. I said plastic so you don't short circuit anything in the process.
4. Do not touch anywhere on the motherboard with your bare hand due to static electricity.
5. replace the battery with new one
6. Go to CMOS and change settings and save them
Hope this fixya was of help to you :)

Reboot the computer.
If error still occurs after rebooting the computer enter CMOS setup and check all values, this includes verifying the time and date are correct.
During the boot process you will see on the screen a certain key to press to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
You will also need to set the time and date
In the main or system setup screen you should be able to see the date and time Using your arrow keys navigate to the date and change the date. Once highlighted on the month, day, or year, press your arrow keys or your page up / page down keys to change the date.
Once everything has been verified and changed make sure you save and exit CMOS setup.
If everything appears to be correct and the issue persists try resetting the CMOS values to the defaults or Reset Configuration Data.
If this issue continues to occur after you turn off your computer off it is possible that the CMOS battery may be failing or already bad. Before considering replacing the CMOS battery try leaving your computer on for several days.
If a BIOS update has been run on the computer the values stored in CMOS may have been reset. Enter CMOS setup re-enter all values and then save and exit CMOS setup.
If you're unable to enter the CMOS setup or after running a BIOS update your computer no longer keeps its values the incorrect BIOS update may have been installed for your computer or the version downloaded may be corrupt. We suggest trying to update the BIOS again or reverting back to an earlier version.
Hope it helps
