Question about Computers & Internet
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?

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.

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.
