    How to reset bios on np300 sansu ng

    What do you need to do that for, it will not "do" anything apart from make the system look for hardware and real time for the on board clock. Download the latest bios firmware from Samsung and install it. Then you will have the latest version.

    How to fix Time-of-day clock stopped

    Is it actually stopped or does it return to a default time when the laptop is unplugged for a while?
    I assume you have already reset the clock, it's located in control panel under Date & Time. You can also set the clock in the BIOS.
    If the time does not advance at all, your motherboard will have to be replaced as the clock chip is not replaceable.
    If the clock just needs to be reset every time you use the laptop, you might try leaving it plugged in overnight to recharge the clock battery. If that doesn't help, the clock battery is bad.

    My asus 1005ha computer wne powering up goes from the grey asus page to a post? page. i have to either press f1, which takes me to the bios settings or f2 which says start with current settings. Have no...

    Your CMOS battery may be dead or dying, or just has been reset. It is a small watch-like battery that keeps track of the time and BIOS settings. Your BIOS settings may have been reset because the battery cannot hold enough of a charge to store the settings and time. Also, it could have just been manually reset in the BIOS settings. If you go into the BIOS settings, adjust your date and time, and the POST screen setting, and the settings stay that way, your battery is good and was just reset. If you change the settings and they reset again, you have a bad CMOS battery. If it is the battery and you need instructions to replace it, let me know.

    Inspiron laptop clock incorrect

    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.

    Let me know how it goes.

    IBM thinkpad T30 wont load up

    Pressing F1 is usually so accept the bios settings. This will happen if it loses all power and the BIOS internal Clock gets reset.

    If you hit F1 it should get past that and let you set the clock in windows or you can hit DELETE key right as you tune it on and try and get into the bios. Some systems its F10, which ever gets you in the bios.

    Then reset the bios to defaults, set the clock and reboot and see what happens.

    Let me know whatever you can as far as details so i can try and help you the best i can.

    good luck

    Bios lock, ERROR CODE 0271

    Error code 0271 - Date and time error. Neither the date nor the time is set in the computer.
    Run BIOS Setup Utility to reset the time and date
    It sounds as though your computer has the wrong time in the CMOS. The CMOS (Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductors) is the chip that holds the basic startup information for the BIOS, system and its peripherals while the system is turned on and off.

    If you can get into the BIOS check the date and time settings and make sure they are correct.

    It may also be a case of the CMOS battery going out. When this happens your computer will tend to not keep the correct time. They are cheap and relatively easy to replace. Before buying a new batter your can try to take it out and let it sit for about 10 minutes or so to reset the CMOS and then go put the battery back in and go into the BIOS and reset the clock.

    Hopefully taking the batter out or replacing it will get past your lock icon asking for the password. Just search for CMOS or BIOS default password for your brand of laptop.
