Question about Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook
When I turn on my computer the date and time seem to have the same date and time as when I turned it off. Could this be a sign of bad things ahead? I have an Inspiron B130 laptop.
Any suggestions will be appreciated.
Inside your computer on your motherboard there is a very small battery. It looks like a watch battery and is called the CMOS battery. The purpose of the battery is to keep a constant flow of electricity flowing through the motherboard so it can keep the time and date program running and also to keep all of your settings. If there was not battery then the date and time would stop when you shut your computer off. So it is time to change the battery for a new one and you will be good. Its not that hard but if you never worked inside a laptop then it is probably better if you found someone experienced to change it.
