Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop

1 Answer

I think I need to change the battery in my CPU

The tag on the PC says 5200 My clock setting does not stay; it changes to different years and dates once I turn off the PC. Sometimes I cannot open documents if I am also on line; I have to turn off the PC and reboot. I am not an expert, but the only thing I can think of is that I have a low battery. I cannot find my Compaq manual to see what battery I need and how to replace it. I will appreciate your help with this. Thank you. Marilyn

Hi there
The Bios battery is located behind the side panel of the desktop base unit, as soon as you have opened the side panel you will see the battery straight away, just pop it out and replace it !!!

Good luck

How to change dates on my personel computor


Click on the Date at your taskbar. When the analog clock shows up, click change date and time settings. A popup windows will appear.

Then, click change date and time, and seti it as your preferred. Click ok and it's all done.

But if you restart the laptop or pc and you date reverse back to previous one, then you need to change the CMOS Battery inside.

Generally, the battery is the flat one used in the watch but the size might be different for some model.

You need to change the internal clock battery. It's referred as a CMOS battery or a system battery. It will most likely be a silver button cell...either a 2016 or 2032. You will most likely find it by removing the main battery and one of the bottom access covers. After you change it, boot up to Windows and change the time and date. It should now retain the settings.

Advent 5431 date keeps changing back to 2008


IS your TimeZone is Correct?
Right click on your clock, choose Adjust Date/Time.
Click Time Zone Tab. Make sure your Time zone is correctly set.


Boot into the BIOS (setup) screens and check the date and time there. If the date is off by years then that verifies you need a new CMOS battery. Do not confuse the CMOS battery with the large external battery you run the computer with.

Can't get the day of the week to go with the month and date


You have to set the calendar for the correct year. To see the year, you have to press the time & month/date buttons altogether. You will see the display change from month/day to year. Use the set+/Set- buttons to change the year to the correct calendar year. This will fix the day to work with the month and date.If you keep having this problem, you will need to change the internal battery. I hope this information help you with your problem.

I have a e system desktop the clock keeps running late


Computers have an internal battery on the motherboard that helpd the board retain certain data when the computer is off. If the battery is low or dead it will cause this problem. The easiest way to replace the battery is to open the side of the computer when it is off and remove the battery from the battery holder on the motherboard. The battery looks just like a watch battery. Replace it with the same kind of battery (available at most drug stores) once you have replaced it turn on your computer and reset your clock.

Wrong date on the radio.


RESETTING THE CLOCK AFTER A TOTAL MEMORY LOSS

If you do not change the built in lithium battery within a reasonable period of time after you see the ‘flashing’ LOW BATT. warning indicator, the lithium battery may become exhausted and will no longer be able to supply back up power to the SmartSet internal computer.

If the unit is disconnected from the AC outlet after the battery is exhausted, or if a power interruption occurs, the SmartSet memory will be lost and the clock will need to be reset when the power is restored. Be sure to install a fresh lithium battery before you reset the clock, otherwise the clock will need to be reset each time the power is interrupted.

If the lithium battery is exhausted and you experience an interruption in the AC power supply, the clock will reset itself to its initial default setting when the power is restored.

The initial default setting is “12:00 AM, Saturday, January 1
(1 1), 2005”.

If you notice that the time on your SmartSet clock radio is completely incorrect, and the day indicator is also wrong, press the MONTH/DATE button to see the date. If the date display is showing “1 1” (January 1 ), you probably experienced
a total memory loss. To reset the clock after a total memory loss, proceed as follows:

1.) Install a new CR2430 lithium battery in the battery compartment.

2.) Connect the radio to your AC outlet and let the clock set itself.

3.) Depress the MONTH/DATE and TIME buttons together. The display will change from ‘time’ to ‘year’. While holding the MONTH/DATE and TIME buttons, press the UP button to
set the display to the correct year, then release the buttons.

4.) Depress the MONTH/DATE button. The display will change from ‘time’ to 'month/date’ (mm/dd). While holding the MONTH/DATE button, press the UP button to set the display
to the correct month and date. The Day indicator will change automatically as you adjust the month/date settings. When the correct month and date appear on the display, release the buttons.

5.) Depress the TIME button and the UP button to set the display to the correct time. Be sure to confirm that you have set the time correctly to ‘AM’ or ‘PM’ by observing the AM indicator.

6.) After you set the time, reconfirm that the Day, and Month/Date displays are still correct. Make final adjustments if necessary.

The SmartSet clock memory is now reset and the new lithium battery will maintain it for the next 5 to 8 years, depending on the number and duration of the power outages you experience.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
After resetting the clock, don’t forget to reset your wake up times, and alarm mode settings, and sleep timer settings as well.
