Why is my toshiba Satellite P-850 clock loosing time


It *might* be
- that the "CMOS battery" (normally a coin cell about 13mm in diameter) is dead, in which case you should replace it.
- The crystal which stabilizes the RTC has drifted.
- If this problem has always occurred it may be the that the RTC chip is defective, but this is highly unlikely, and even less likely to have developed a fault with time.
- if you connect to the internet frequently (several times per day) the above can be ruled out (I think).

The laptop is dead.


It does sound like your cmos battery. It is located on your system board. If your confident you can take the laptop apart and get the details from the battery and then goto a pc shop and buy a new one if not take the laptop to the shop and they can replace it for you.

Time of day clock stoped in dell 1525 model


you neede to replace the cmos battery inside the laptop, it is like a battery looks like a dime or nickel usually, that is what keeps time when your laptop is not on....it also is important for it to be working because if it is not, it will cause computer some hardware/software issues. you can pull the battery, and look it up on ebay, they are cheap maybe between 2 and 9 dollars

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).

Times of day clock stopped when i on my inspiron laptop 1525 times of day clock stopped


you are experiecing with your CMOS battery so:

try taking the CMOS battery out
leaving for 30 seconds
make sure it's all unplugged from the wall
do that first
then press the power button after the 30 seconds
to drain all power
then put battery back in
and plug in and turn on

and if still problem remains then you need to change your CMOS battery.
