The system clock will not stay set, when I turn off laptop the clock stops and calendar stops . I reset it every time I turn it back on so I receive all up to date updates . Windows updates are set to ...

You need to set the correct date and time in your system BIOS. To access that you need to press the correct key when the computer is first booted (usually DEL or F10/F2/F11).
Most computers will have a message stating press xx Key to enter setup or etc.
If this problem persists even after setting the correct time in your BIOS, your laptop needs a new CMOS battery. I recommend having a professional do this.

My latptop's internal clock getting problem after some days its reset to year 2002.

The CMOS battery is responsible for the internal clock. If it automatically resets itself to 2002 (motherboard manufacturing date) then you need to have it replaced (it's really cheap to have it replaced).

My Acer extensa4420-5963 has been acting funky for the last three/four days. Started out my date and time went haywire. Clock kept losing time as soon as laptop was turned off and reverted to battery. Then...


First of all the RTC (real time clock, BIOS/CMOS) battery has run out. This means the computer cannot keep the date and time when its turned off and disconnected from the mains. You will need to take the laptop to a reputable PC repair store and have them fit you a new CMOS battery.

As for the power on problem, this well could relate to the CMOS battery being drained but also could be a number of different reasons why it won't power on properly.

In my experience laptops that have problems powering on is either to do with the DC adapter on the laptop that has a dry solder point or the power board is failing.

Either way i would take the computer to be looked at.
