IT is really easy.
Open the side of the computer and on the motherboard you will see a flat silver disc about the size of a quarter.. a little smaller. Take it out and take it with you to radio shack/Wal-Mart or where ever, to get the right replacement. IT just slides back into place.

The clock goes to the wrong time after switch off. I then have to reset it on switch on. Is there a CMOS battery inside my desk top processor? If so, what No battery should I buy, and how do I install it...


Your CMOS battery is most likely dead, therefore you need to obtain a new CMOS battery either from another computer or most batteries are a standard 2032 battery purchased at any drug store. To install open up your computer and look at the motherboard for the battery that looks like a watch battery and install the new on in its place.

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:

Where isw the cmos battery


it's inside the computer, it's a small round, flat, silver battery similar to those in watches and tons of other devices. It stores the clock time when the computer is shut off. You will need to take apart the laptop carefully in order to get to it. Is your clock getting reset everytime you turn it back on? Then yes you will need to replace the battery.

Iomega 1TB desk top won't eject.


Some of the iomega hard drives don't communicate with Windows XP very well. Ejecting isn't needed, but you simply unplug it. Just make sure you are not accessing it at that time. You can also shutdown the computer and unplug it then. Restarting the computer may also allow you to eject it.
Hope this helps! Rate my solution!

Hi ihave a fiat brava 1.2 x reg in the morning the car will not start it turns over rather lazy and only 2 or 3 turns and the digital clock trip meter reset to zero.it has new battery earth wires ok...


It seems the battery loses power over night.
There seems to be some electrical componant chewing up the battery.
Try to remove one of the battery terminal wire at night and thn fix it in the morning and thn see if it will start without jumping, if it does thn the battery is being chewed up overnight.
If after removing the battery terminal at night and refitting it in the morning and it still requires jump start ,thn the battery is faulty.
Hope this helps!

Dacor ecs230 clock button is not working


there may be a backup battery built in to this unit to keep the clock running in case the power goes out. depending on the age of the unit, it may need to be replaced. the battery size and number as well as it's location should be in the owner's manual.

Screen


There are a couple of possibilities.

1. A cable has come loose inside the computer.

2. A cable has become defective.

3. The LCD is defective.

If you wiggle the LCD back and forth and you can get the picture to work again intermittently then answers 1 & 2 above would be more likely.
