How do i fix my Personal computer bios problem?

After shutting down my PC the time and date was wrong. When it restarted it required me to have to press F1 to start the computer. To try to cure this problem, I reset the BIOS to standard and re-installed Windows and then ESET Security and replaced the BIOS Battery. But I'm still getting this problem.

You can try and go to the manufacturer's support site and look for the updated BIOS as when your CMOS battery died it flashed the bios back to the original and that could be the problem? If you post the Make, Model of your PC then I may be able to link you to the updated BIOS for your PC?
Let us know?

SOURCE: computer starts up with bios screen

I guess there is error saying wrong RTC Time Press F1 ... or something along those lines. You need to get replacement battery for your MB. This is a battery that provides power to the CMOS chip with all BIOS settings.

SOURCE: bios date and time problem

You need to replace the cmos battery in your computer. Theu are usually Cr2032 batteries which you should be able to pick up for about £1.

unplug your computer and open the case.
When you look at the motherboard you should be able to easily locate the cmos battery cliped onto the mobo.
Take the old battery out and insert the new one.
put the case back on and plug the pc into the mains again.
You will need to re-enter the date etc the next time you boot up, but the settings should be retained after that.

Double click on the time and a dialogue box will appear called date and time properties.
Click the arrow V after the month and a drop down menu will appear click on the correct month of the year .click on the up or down arrow on the year to select the right one. then click on the calender to select the right day .Now click on the up or down buttons beside the digital time to change it to the correct time . once you have done this click on apply changes. Now click on the time zone tab and select your country and time zone. after doing that click on the Internet time tab and select a server that you wish to synchronize your computer with from the drop down menu and then click on apply then click on ok. If your time changes after shutting down and restarting your computer you might need to get your cmos battery tested or replaced. I hope this helps.

Laptop date and time setting get disturbed automatically when i reboot my laptop

When you boot up and the Date & Time is wrong then you correct the Date & Time, then when you shut down and boot up again the Date and Time has changed. This is an indication that the BIOS battery is flat and you need to replace the BIOS battery. Install a new BIOS battery, go into the BIOS setting and set the Date & Time etc. and the new battery will keep your settings stored in the BIOS.

Please run setup invalid configuration information

If this error message comes up when you boot up the computer, it means the BIOS requires configuration, usually the Time and Date is wrong.
If this occurs every time you boot up your computer and have changed the Date and Time then this could be caused by a flat BIOS battery.
If so, replace the BIOS battery and then configure the Date and Time and you won't get this error again.

My new HP notebook won't turn on. I've had it for one month. There is a light on the side where it is plugged in, but it won't turn on

Unplug the AC adaptor. Remove the battery. Hold down the start button for 1 minute. Replace the battery and plug in the AC adapter. The computer should reboot.

My computer went back to older clock date as 1610

try starting your computer in safe mode and see if you can do anything productive there, like scanning for viruses or spyware. also check if you can do the following:
CTRL+ALT+DEL (open task manager)
goto Start>Run>Regedit (open registry editor)
goto Start>Control Panel>Display>Properties (change display settings)
right click on clock at tray and change the current time to correct settings

if you cannot do any of these activities, then your computer may probably been compromised by a virus or malware.

Can not save to bios

windows and the bios needs to know that the operating system can be shut down through windows, so when you go into the F2 or Del on boot up, go into advanced cmos setings and look for ACPI and make sure it is enabled. This sets the motherboard to support shutdown. Save and exit settings and reboot. Now go to control panel>performance and maintanance>power options and set the correct instruction for shutdown to shut the pc down. Remember evertime you remove the cmos battery or reset with jumpers you have to reset date and time and anything else you have changed to suit your set up
