Re: Not keeping time
Go into the BIOS by pressing F2 when you first turn on the laptop. In the main screen you should be able to change the time and date. After you do that save the changes and exit and go into windows and see if the date and time is current.

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.
There is a small 3 volt battery on the motherboard which is the backup for the circuit clock .So if the battery has gone low in voltage the clock will be reset as the CMOS setting will be reset. The clock will then go back to the time of the laptop set-up which is in july 2008.
Replacing and then correcting the CMOS set- up on booting will set the clock to work to the current time/date.
double click the clock/time in the system tray in the lower right of your computer screen, then click on the time zone tab and select the eastern standard time zone and tick off the box in the lower left of that box for the automatically adjust for daylight saving time, then select apply in the bottom then ok...now recheck your time..it should now read the correct time.
It sounds like your CMOS battery is dead. The CMOS battery keeps the date and time current as well as your BIOS settings when power has been turned off to the system. Check your system for the current type of battery your Toshiba uses. It either uses a disc type of battery that sits in a socket, or it has a disc type that is in a covering and attaches to the motherboard via a small cable.
Go into the BIOS by turning on the laptop and pressing F2. In there i believe on the main screen you can change the time and date. Do that, save changes and exit and then go into windows and see if it keeps the right time and date.
Hello, Your computer system has a RTC (Real Time Clock) Battery that usually stores the correct time and other settings of the motherboard when you power down. If this battery is dead or faulty, it will reset Get it replaced and set your time once and it should remain correct as long as the battery is good.
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.

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.
