Time and date changes daily to january 3

I correct the time and date daily. The computer is 4-to 5 years old. Could it be the battery? It went from monthly to weekly to daily and always says January 2003.

Date problem


When the Date and time error message comes up during booting up the computer, it means the BIOS requires configuration.
If this occurs every time you boot up your computer after changing the Date and Time then, this is caused by a flat BIOS battery.
The BIOS battery is ususlly a 20mm dia. 3 volt lithium battery type CR2030
Replace the BIOS battery and then configure the Date and Time and you won't get this error again.

I can't get into the Bios of me ASUS A7V8X Motherboard. I hit del and nothing happens. until i stop hitting del, then it just starts windows xp up normally. Every now and then it enters the bios on it's...


Probably the battery. Easiest way to check is first disconnect from internet, then check date in xp, if says year 2000, your bios has been reset to default, probably from dead battery. Check by unplugging computer and pressing power button 2 or 3 times, then remove button battery and move pins to clear cmos, after 10 seconds, replacd pins and reinstall battery. Bios should then boot to default settings. In General tab, set correct date. If xp still shows incorrect date, you have a dead battery.

Every time i turn my laptop on the time and date keep changing and going back nearly 3 years,i have been told it is the CMOS battery is this right?


Hi,

What you have been told is correct. When the real time clock battery (CMOS) runs out then the date and time will revert back to the day the bios was programed, in your case 3 years ago.

You can set the date and time while you are using Windows but each time you power the laptop down it will loose this information.

A quick workaround is not to power the laptop off but put it to sleep instead until you have got a CMOS battery for the laptop.



Regards.

No POST/Black Screen


Believe it or not, clearing the CMOS might actually help. Make sure you do it right by completely unplug the power cord or turn off the PSU, then take the battery out.

It also sounds like the CPU might be too hot. Look under the fan of the heatsink and see if there is any dust that will block the airflow. When the computer is on, touch the heatsink and feel if it is really warm. If it is really warm, it's a good sign, you might just need more airflow. If it is cold, you might need to reinstall the heatsink/apply new thermal compounds.

I suspect the on-board battery because I did some minor maintenance and when I re-booted the computer the time and date were at January 1, 2004 at 12:00 a.m. I have the SG-80


Hi,

Thanks for using Fixya.

If your system BIOS time keeps on going back to Jan. 1, 2004 without you changing it. There is a 95% chance that you have a bad battery. All you need to do is to replace it. If replacing it doesn't help, try checking the battery terminal if they are still good. I hope this helps.

Thanks and have a nice day.

I have a Dell dimension 9150 which is 2 1/2 years old. Does it have a battery that I need to be concerned about replacing. I remember that used to be a problem with computers but don't know if that is...


Hi,
Every PC motherboard has a battery. That battery serves two purposes: to feed the configuration memory (also called CMOS) and to feed the real time clock of the computer (the one that show the date and the time).
An indication it is time to change the motherboard battery is receiving one of the following error messages when you turn on your computer: CMOS CHECKSUM FAILURE, CMOS BATTERY STATE LOW, CMOS SYSTEM OPTIONS NOT SET and CMOS TIME AND DATE NOT SET. Another indicator of a low battery is a clock that, after being set, runs well while the computer is on, but shows the wrong time when the computer is turned on the following day (it is late).

Cmos settings


CMOS is a memory chip on your computer that stores BIOS information as well as system clock. It powered by a 3V backup battery. If your computer is more then 3 years old it is possible that the backup battery on your PC needs to be replaced. Replace your battery then go to BIOS setup and adjust your date and time. But it is also possible that the clock is a bit off, so first your can just try to adjust your clock without replacement of the battery. You can also do it inside the windows from control panel. Be sure you have a correct time zone.

Good Luck!

Update of time and date


If you change it in the bios. make sure you save the settings.
If that doesnt work the battery may be bad.
