That's exactly what is wrong.

You will need a new battery.

ASUS ALL IN ONE computer ET2221i-b85 The time is not correct and keeps losing time. I want to replace the cmos battery .


Keeping time has always been a problem for computers, as their internal clocks needed something to synchronize with. If you have an Internet connection and use Windows, you can get the time adjusted regularly using a time set function from Windows online. The CMOS battery will have little to do with time settings, unless it goes bad. Then, not only will your date and time go out of sync, so can many other settings in the CMOS. So, unless you are getting a low battery warning, or both the date and time are out of sync, you probably don't need a new CMOS battery and replacement probably won't fix you time drift issue.

In Windows 10, to get auto time sync, go to "Settings", then select "Date and Time". Under this you will see an option to "Set Time Automatically", as well as to select your time zone.

Cmos battery error failure


The CMOS (BIOS) battery keeps the computer'a comfiguration and the Date & Time settings in the CMOS (BIOS) chip in its memory. When the CMOS (BIOS) battery is flat these configuration information is lost.
Replace the CMOS battery with a new one, in most cases this battery is a lithium 3 volt battery type CR2032 and it is coin size battery 18mm in dia.(check it to make sure the type of battery is installed on your motherboard).
When you replace this battery then go into the BIOS and set the Date & Time etc.

I have an intel g41 motherboard....every time i switchon d pc...it shows check cmos error and the time and date are set to defaluts


This error occurs when the BIOS battery is flat. Replace the BIOS battery, most motherboards use a lithium battery type CR2032, this is a coin size battery. Check the BIOS battery type used on your motherboard before you purchase the battery.
After replacing the battery go to the BIOS setting and set the Date & Time etc. and you will not have this CMOS error.

Hi, iam ramesh i have problem in my intel 845gvsr , when system boots it displayed error message date & time not set , i have changed new cmos battery.


There are two reasons for this issue
1. It is battery - but you have replaced it. 2. It could be your BIOS is degraded try the following steps
a. Reset your settings to defaults by using the jumper and try b. if the issue still persists you can try installing the upgraded BIOS version (but be cautioned - since failure during BIOS upgrade may lead to motherboard failure).

My computer's bios doesn't save anything


Here's the manufacturer info link
http://www.intel.com/products/motherboard/DG31PR/configs.htm

BIOS Loses Date and Time (or Changed Settings Not Saved)
A coin-cell battery (CR2032) powers the real-time clock and CMOS memory. When the voltage of the CMOS battery drops below a certain level, the BIOS Setup program settings stored in CMOS RAM (for example, the date and time) might not be accurate. If you find that date and time is incorrect or if you make BIOS setting changes but they are not saved, replace the battery with an equivalent one. Caution Risk of explosion if the battery is replaced with an incorrect type. Batteries should be recycled where possible. Disposal of used batteries must be in accordance with local environmental regulations.
To replace the battery, follow these steps:
  1. Turn off all peripheral devices connected to the computer. Disconnect the computer’s power cord from the AC power source (wall outlet or power adapter).
  2. Remove the computer cover.
  3. Locate the battery on the board. battery1.jpg
  4. With a medium flat-bladed screwdriver, gently pry the battery free from its connector. Note the orientation of the “+” and “-” on the battery.
  5. Install the new battery in the connector, orienting the “+” and “-” correctly.
  6. Replace the computer cover.

I am working on a inel. The 5V light on the MB was blinking and of course, the PC wouldn't turn on. I replaced the P/S and the issue seemed solved - now the 5V light is on steady but the PC has an issue...


It sounds like your CMOS Battery is dead. As soon as you power down, your cmos loses it's information, however, keeping the battery in the motherboard completes the circuit and prevents it from restarting. Your best bet is to look what kind of battery your CMOS runs off of, this is common amongst almost all motherboards, albeit I can't remember which one it is off the top of my head. Anyway, Buy a new battery and replace old CMOS battery with new one. This should resolve your problem. If you still have problems after this, your motherboard might be damaged and you should look into getting it repaired or replaced. I hope this helps.

Im getting a boot time error called CMOS error and then i have to enter the sytem date and time every time i start the pc. After that it shows me an error like Invalid System Disk. wht does tht mean?


The CMOS error is caused by a dead motherboard battery. There is a small battery on the motherboard Usually a 2032 battery. The dead motherboard battery could also cause the Invalid system disk because a dead motherboard battery will also cause the motherboard to lose the Hard drive settings.

Bios


Hi, if you're system does not keep the correct date & time it is possible the cmos/bios battery on the motherboard has reached it's max life span. The bios battery recharges only when the system is on. In many cases even when the system is on & you correct the date & time & notice the time is off the battery needs replaced.
