Question about Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook

1 Answer

Date and clock doesn't remain changed

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.

Rtc battery is low or cmos checksum is inconsistent


The RTC battery is a rechargeable Li-ion "clock" battery that's buried underneath the keyboard - it keeps date and time going when your computer is turned off. If you're getting this message, you should go follow the screen prompt, hit F1 to enter Setup, and set the date and time, leave the computer on for several hours to charge it (the clock battery recharges only with the computer turned on) and it should go away.

In the rare event that your RTC battery is bad, it's really up to you as to getting it replaced or not - it's a lotta work, and not all the battery vendors out there is competent enough to sell you the right kind of battery (installing a non-rechargeable Lithium battery will kill the thing outright, and there are actually people selling these....). Not having a working RTC battery doesn't really interfere with the workings of the computer - you'll just have to set date and time every time you start it, and you can do so manually or by downloading some freeware such as Atomic Clock Sync to automatically do it for you.

My Computer system clock (time) is in a loop, between 12:00hrs and 14:00hrs (Date will not change). I have tried to change the settings in BIOS and also restored the system to a date before the problem...


Hi mutumbac. Please check the battery on your computer's motherboard. All motherboards have a small (clock-type) battery that powers the internal clock even when the computer is turned off. These batteries are good for about 2 years, and after that they should be replaced or else the computer will reset the date and time every time it boots up.

Clock in computer will not maintain time and date


Yes it very probably is the CMOS battery, time is kept counting electric pulses, when the computer is turned on there is power and memory to do this, but when it is turned off it relays on the battery to keep this an some other settings, maybe you're receiving a warning at boot time. Check this guide for replacing such batteries:

My computer is changing the time back to 31/12/02 every time its turned on


Your motherboard backup battery is gone.
This is a watch type battery mounted on the motherboard that powers the chip (CMOS) that retains basic information (BIOS) about your computer while it is turned off.
The battery is gone and not holding the time and date.
The battery is very easy to change, do you have a tower computer or a laptop and are you OK with looking inside the case for the battery?

Can't read the date/time


There may be a simple explanation. Here are two possible reasons this is happening: * You may have disconnected the power source before turning off the power to your camcorder. If you remove the power source from the camcorder while the power is on, all settings and selections will be erased. Make sure to turn the camcorder's power off before disconnecting the power source. * This is particularly an issue for some early VHS-C camcorders – those with model numbers beginning with a "6" and ending with a "2" or "3" (i.e. CC6xx2 … CC6xx3). These camcorders have a consumer-replaceable clock battery that may be exhausted. If that battery runs dead or is removed and the main battery or AC is not connected, the camcorder will lose all its Date and Time settings. * In some models, the date and time display is designed to do this. When you turn on many VHS-C and digital camcorders, the Auto Date mode will display the time and date. When recording begins, the date is recorded on the tape for 5 seconds and then disappears. In the viewfinder, the date will then be replaced with the words AUTO DATE but they will not be recorded. They remain in your viewfinder so that you know this feature is on. On full-size or VHS camcorders, the Auto Date feature is very similar. When you first turn on the camcorder, the date along with the word AUTO and a Clock icon appear in the viewfinder. When recording begins, the date is automatically recorded for 10 seconds and then disappears. In the viewfinder, the Clock icon and the word AUTO remain but they will not be recorded. They remain so that you are aware that this feature is on. When using the Auto Date feature, be aware that the time is only recorded when you first turn on the camcorder and begin a recording session. It does not record each time you press the record button. There are a number of time and date display and recording options. Since these vary by model number, please refer to your owner’s manual for more details.
