Sounds like your cmos 3 volt battery is dead and needs replaced.
its a very small coin size battery located/hidden inside the laptop.
you will have to google the placement or just find it.

How to change dates on my personel computor


Click on the Date at your taskbar. When the analog clock shows up, click change date and time settings. A popup windows will appear.

Then, click change date and time, and seti it as your preferred. Click ok and it's all done.

But if you restart the laptop or pc and you date reverse back to previous one, then you need to change the CMOS Battery inside.

Generally, the battery is the flat one used in the watch but the size might be different for some model.

Now click on the time zone tab and select your country and time zone. after doing that click on the Internet time tab and select a server that you wish to synchronize your computer with from the drop down menu and then click on apply then click on ok. If your time changes after shutting down and restarting your computer you might need to get your cmos battery tested or replaced. I hope this helps.

Could be a bad solder connection or a bad / dusty connection on some internal cable. It could be a bad IC which functions as the controller to each pixel, but when you press on the monitor to fix it, that suggests it is a physical connection issue.

When i open the laptop which is lg with model number lgc50,a message appear,and it says press f11 to begin lg recovery,and suddenly another message appear that says.....disk read error


Please check if you have any disk in your CD/DVD drive, if not then the issue is likely with the hard disk drive (which has all your data). We have to check if the hard drive has gone bad completely. Please take your computer / hard drive to a local technician and ask them to backup your data if possible. Then you have to replace your hard drive.

Digitizer Pro Exception Access Violation Exception code c0000005, Exception flags 0, Exception address 01697E72, Number Parameters 2,Start up Address 004011A0, offset 01296CD2, Digitizer pro was running...


Hello,

Turn on your PC in safe mode by Pressing F8 on the keyboard immediately the PC is turned on or at start up.

A booting option will come up, choose safe mode and press enter on your key board.

Wait a while for it to boot up. After booting perform system restore.

System restore helps to back date your system to the time when the Digitizer pro was working perfectly. YOu can back date the system to like 1 week ago.

Follow below procedures to perform the system restore;
  • Start => All Programs => Accessories => System Tools => and click the System Restore. System restore will run and here you should see the Welcome System Restore page appear. Click Restore my computer button to an early time if it's not already selected. Click next to continue the steps.
  • There is on your laptop screen a Restore Point page appear, you can select it and then click the most recent system checkpoint it, click a restore point list. After you click the Next button, System Restore message may appear that lists configuration changes that System Restore will create. Click OK.
Your computer will be restarted after the restore and that would be all.

Try the Digitizer pro again, after the system restore is complete.

Good luck.

I have several 600's and they all have the same issue. They are giving 161 192 163 errors. I replaced the battery in them and then go to try and setup the time. However, instead of letting me set the...


Hi,

161 = CMOS configuration lost (battery has died).

163 = CMOS error; Clock is not updating.

192 = System fan is faulty, not plugged into the system board or the system board itself is faulty.


Whe you replaced the RTC (real time clock/BIOS battery) did you make sure that the CPU fan was working?

If it is then go back into the BIOS and reset it to defaults. Save the changes and reboot, then go back into the BIOS and try to set the time and date.


Regards.

I get the message "Bad check sum (CMOS)" Model toshiba tecra 730XCDT


hi friend,

Probably a dead Motherboard battery. Need to enter the BIOS screens and reset values. Especially the time and date. Maybe the boot order and if using USB KBoard enable legusy USB devices. This will occur each time your friend shuts down and reboots until the battery is changed.
Issue
When you turn your Toshiba computer on, you see an error message like: **** Bad RTC battery ****
**** Bad Checksum (CMOS) ****
Check system, then press [F1] key The Real Time Clock (RTC) battery provides power for the internal clock/calendar and for maintaining system configuration settings.
This error can occur when a machine has been left turned-off for an extended period of time (around a month), and is the result of a depleted RTC battery. Other symptoms include not being able to execute Windows Update properly, errors/problems executing application software (like Norton Antivirus), and the appearance of the Windows XP "Desktop Clean Wizard".
Resolution This condition is easy to fix in 3 basic steps: Reset the BIOS defaults
Set the correct date and time in Windows.
Charge the RTC battery Please follow the detailed instructions in the next section.
Procedure Set BIOS defaults Press the [F1] key as instructed in the error message:
**** Bad RTC battery ****
**** Bad Checksum (CMOS) ****
Check system, then press [F1] key In the BIOS setup screen press the [Home] key to restore the default values, then press the [End] key to save and exit, then the [Y] key to confirm and restart the system. Set the correct date and time in Windows As Windows starts-up, you may see an error message about an "Invalid System Time". Go ahead and click "OK" to clear the error dialog. Open the Windows Control Panel and open the "Date and Time" control by double-clicking its icon. Set the correct date and time, then click OK to save. Charge the Real Time Clock (RTC) battery To charge the RTC battery, connect the AC adapter and turn the computer on (both the DC IN and Power LEDs must be green). Leave the machine on for approximately 24 hours to ensure a full charge in the RTC battery. Please note that the RTC battery does not charge while the PC is turned off, regardless of whether the AC adapter is connected or not. Other Information: If, on subsequent reboots, the "Bad RTC Battery" error persists, it's quite likely that you actually do have a bad RTC battery. If that's the case, you should contact a Toshiba Authorized Service Provider to have the system serviced. Windows XP Desktop Cleanup Wizard The first time you reboot Windows XP after resetting the system clock, Windows XP may try to run the "Desktop Cleanup Wizard". Simply Cancel the "Desktop Cleanup Wizard" at the first dialog. If you do manage to clean your shortcuts from the desktop and want to recover them, you will find them in a folder called "Unused Desktop Shortcuts". You can recover them as follows: Double-click to open the "Unused Desktop Shortcuts" folder
Click to expand the "Edit" menu, and click "Select All"
Drag the selected items back to your desktop
Close the "Unused Desktop Shortcuts" folder. You can delete this folder if it is empty.

thank u for using fixya
