Inspiron laptop clock occasionally reverts to July 2008


There is a small 3 volt battery on the motherboard which is the backup for the circuit clock .So if the battery has gone low in voltage the clock will be reset as the CMOS setting will be reset. The clock will then go back to the time of the laptop set-up which is in july 2008.
Replacing and then correcting the CMOS set- up on booting will set the clock to work to the current time/date.

Clock not keeping correct time


The CMOS battery keeps the laptop configuration stored in the CMOS chip and the main battery has no effect on the CMOS.
If the date and time drift off, it indicates the CMOS battery is nearly flat and needs to be replaced.
If you had ticked the Daylight saving box in the Time Zone tab in Control Panel - Date and Time setting then the time would automatically adjust for Daylight saving.

OVERCLOCKING FAIL/CPU FAN ERROR


First approach shold be the CMOS utility, check in FAILSAFE DEFAULTS that the error settings for shutdown are either null for overclocking or disabled if you don't have the failsafe defaults on your CMOS utility then set your settings to best performance (should be found on the main page of the CMOS utility). If you are unsure of touching the CMOs then you could try to remove the CMOS battery (small 3 volt battery about the size of a 20 cent coin) located on the motherboard this should reset the CMOS and fix the problem. hope i could help,thanks:)
