The most possible cause for that is the cmos battery at the mainboard. Open the case and try to locate a round small battery like this

Remove it and using this as a sample buy a new one (it's about 2-5Euros cost). Repalce with the new one and you are ready. After changing the battery a good advice is to get into the bios settings and check them, because sometimes are resetting at default after changing the battery.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

Laptop date and time setting get disturbed automatically when i reboot my laptop


When you boot up and the Date & Time is wrong then you correct the Date & Time, then when you shut down and boot up again the Date and Time has changed. This is an indication that the BIOS battery is flat and you need to replace the BIOS battery. Install a new BIOS battery, go into the BIOS setting and set the Date & Time etc. and the new battery will keep your settings stored in the BIOS.

Cmos settings do not remain


g'day!

perhaps there is something wrong with your CMOS battery that's why the settings does not save. to find out, see if the time and date on your CMOS is not correct. You then have to change the battery. Once the battery has been changed, power up the computer and go to the BIOS settings to reset the settings to the settings you want. press F10 to save the changes you have made. once done you can reboot you computer.

cheers mate!

When powering up the computer I sometimes get an error code 271 check date and time.


If the pc boots - in the lower right systems tray - there is time displayed - - change that time to the correct time AND day - -if the pc doesn't boot - - DO a reboot - and as right after you turn the machine on - tap DELETE -- don't worry it won't delete anything - - -once you do that [ it may take 2-3 even 4 or 5 tries - you will end up in the BIOS - see the time? Top one - first page - set the time to the correct time and DATE -- then select - save changes - reboot and you will good to go.

I THINK YOUR MOTHERBOARD BATTERY MAY BE DAMAGED OR DOWN. YOU HAVE TO REPALCE THE BATTERY AND TRY AGAIN TO START THE PC.

Why my acer laptops 2303 nlc date changes every


Go into your BIOS and change the date there and the save changes and exit. Hopefully on the reboot when you get into windows the dtae will read prroperly If it does then turn off the laptop and then turn it back on and see if the date is still reading properly. If it does then you know it was a BIOS issue.

If the date still doesn't read properly then you know that the BIOS battery is weak and not holding memory and so the battery would need to be replaced.

My PC does not boot when I press the power button on. The power comes alright but it will not boot and load files unless I leave it on for a long time and later reboot it again. This has been the problem...


You need to clear cmos usually on board is a little coloured jumper,but also first disconnect power plugs from board which come from the big psu,normally have a little clip you have to squeeze,find cmos normally 3 pins with a littl jumper move it from one set of pins to next set of 2 pins,you normally have i pin exposed,so move left or right and hold for 10 seconds make sur e you put back as it was,reconnect psu plugs ,reboot enter the bios normally Delete button or what it says on your screen normally setup button ,reset your time and date and make sure you save your settings before you leave bios page

Can not save to bios


windows and the bios needs to know that the operating system can be shut down through windows, so when you go into the F2 or Del on boot up, go into advanced cmos setings and look for ACPI and make sure it is enabled. This sets the motherboard to support shutdown. Save and exit settings and reboot. Now go to control panel>performance and maintanance>power options and set the correct instruction for shutdown to shut the pc down. Remember evertime you remove the cmos battery or reset with jumpers you have to reset date and time and anything else you have changed to suit your set up
