I have a ASUS M5A99X EVO R2.0 motherboard. When I went into the BIOS, the only thing I see is the clock in the upper left hand corner. If I move the cursor the screen will ,one very big pixel at a time,...

I would definitely update the BIOS on your ASUS PC from the Windows Operating System.

Perhaps updating the BIOS will fix your current issues on the currently-installed BIOS.

You can find the BIOS updates on this site:

ASUS Eee Box EB1501P how to replace battery

It very hard to find the battery. You have to remove the motherboard totally from the plastic case. There is a screw under wifi microcard so you have to unscrew that first on the left hand side when you have the pc the connection side (hdi, vga, power etc) facing you.
The CMOS battery is on the rear side under the side where the RAM, HD, CPU fan and the CPU is located. I managed to bend it up enough to get a screwdriver into the holder and release the battery. Good luck.

Dell 4600 clock battery location

The Clock/time is kept with the aid of a silver 3Volt button cell. This cell also provides power to the BIOS/CMOS. It is found on the computer mainboard.

If you do replace it, be sure to enter the BIOS to set the time and other settings that may need ot be set.
The button to push to enter the BIOS is usually delete or F12.

Keep Well!

My computer will not keep time. is there a battery that needs to be replaced to fix this.

Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the side-panel to expose the motherboard.
Look for a silver-coloured object, about the size of a US $0.25 coin.
This is the battery that helps the clock on your motherboard keep the correct time.
Look closely: one side of the battery shows engraving, and the other side (which you cannot see is blank).
Gently remove the battery.
Take the battery to a computer-store, to buy a replacement.
Press the new battery into the socket, orienting that engraving to match the engraving on the battery that you removed.
Restart your computer.
Press DEL to enter BIOS SETUP.
Click "Load BIOS defaults".
Reset the date/time.
Click "Save and Exit" from BIOS SETUP.

Clock loses time. Have downloaded latest BIOS update but did not fix problem. Do I need to install a new battery and, if so, how? Computer is a HP Pavilion a6030n running Vista 32 bit.

it is advisable to change your CMOS (complementary metallic oxide semi-conductor) battery. this battery helps save and keep up to current your settings even when your shutdown your machine. if it is weak, then it might not keep the settings properly

I have a e system desktop the clock keeps running late

Computers have an internal battery on the motherboard that helpd the board retain certain data when the computer is off. If the battery is low or dead it will cause this problem. The easiest way to replace the battery is to open the side of the computer when it is off and remove the battery from the battery holder on the motherboard. The battery looks just like a watch battery. Replace it with the same kind of battery (available at most drug stores) once you have replaced it turn on your computer and reset your clock.

How to I change the battery on my acer aspireL100

First, ensure that your power adaptor is consistantly powering your system and watch for intermittant operation with the adaptors green light. (This rules out cord breaks for shorts)

Second, all laptops have a removable battery: You can find a replacement at

Laptop batteires serve to power your CMOS (Carbon Metal Oxide Semiconductor) on your laptop, and keeps your internal BIOS clock accurate. On Desktops, it's a lithium battery on the mainboard.

Also, check to ensure that you do not have a battery recall on the unit as well, as you may be able to get a free replacement.

If your clock is off by a few minutes, change time servers in the windows clock option. Just double click the time on the task bar, click internet time, and you can this one if you don't have it listed: Some are overloaded due to requests. That should keep you with arc seconds on the actual usno time clock.

Good luck.

Good luck.

Evesham quest a240 looses the clock settings when switched off

Needs a new bios battery. Mine lasted 6 months before giving up. However you can leave the laptop plugged into the mains power when computer is switched off and the date/time will be kept. Otherwise change the bios battery or reset the time each time you use it. I phone Evesham and they said that the bios battery is soldered to the chassis on this model and so would need to be returned to the factory for this to be replaced. Since Evesham are now defunct you would need to get a PC repair shop to replace the battery. Is easy to do.
