Emachine T 5212, when i turn it on,, a siren sounds,,then computer shuts off


In your computer (as well as other gadgets), the battery powers a chip called the Real Time Clock (RTC)chip. The RTC is essentially a quartz watch that runs all the time, whether or not the computer has power. The battery powers this clock. When the computer boots up, part of the process is to query the RTC to get the correct time and date. A little quartz clock like this might run for five to seven years off of a small battery. Then it is time to replace the battery.

This does not explain why your computer would not boot, however. You would expect the computer to boot fine but have an incorrect time and date. The reason your computer would not boot is because the RTC chip also contains 64 (or more) bytes of random access memory (RAM). The clock uses 10 bytes of this space, leaving 54 bytes for other purposes. The BIOS stores all sorts of information in the CMOS RAM area, like the number of floppy and hard disk drives, the hard disk drive type, etc. If the CMOS RAM loses power, the computer may not know anything about the hard disk configuration of your machine, and therefore it cannot boot.

Many more modern computers are not quite so dependent on the CMOS RAM. They store the settings innon-volatile RAM that works without any power at all. If the battery goes dead, the clock fails but the computer can still boot using the information in the non-volatile RAM area. I would change the battery and make sure unit is unplugged and my other hand is touching the metal frame on the computer to stop static discharge. Blow out the inside of the computer completely.Start computer with case off and make sure all the fans run and don't sound like a siren.Replace anything not running.It may not boot if the BIOS can't see the hard drives. You might have to start computer and watch the screen and when it asks you to hit a key to get into like the bios do it and see if you can reset it. If nothing seems be running right maybe the power supply went out they are real cheep at Tiger Direct.

Set computer clock three hours later


Hi buffaloman...
To set your computer clock go to the time in the bottom right hand corner of your desktop screen.
Left click on the clock and a window will open, you will then click on "Date/Time Properties" and it will let you change the time of your computer clock.

I have forgot my BIOS password


The only way to reset the bios password is to reset the bios itself. Depending on the make/model of your computer, there might be a little button on the back of the unit which you push with a paperclip. Turn the computer on and while the BIOS is booting, press the Pause'Break button on your keyboard. That should stop the BIOS boot...Or attempt to get into it so that it waits at the bios password screen, then press the button. It should reset the computer, then when it comes back up (you might need to hit it twice, then turn the power on), it will say something about the clock being wrong, enter the setup to fix it. Go ahead and enter the setup, reset the clock, then (if you need to) reset the password to something you'll remember.

If there's no button, then you'll have to reset the bios using a jumper on the motherboard. The jumper's location varies based on the make/model of your computer. If you respond with said make/model, I should be able to look up how to do it, and I can respond back with the specific instructions.

My computer time and date keeps resetting itself to a different time. I'm connected to the internet but that is all. Why does it do this?


the clock microchip inside you motherboard is run by a small lithium battery model # CR2032 ( the size of a small coin) this is embeded in the motherboard, this can be replaced with a new one by removing the PC's cover and looking for it on the motherboard .....once replaced the clock can be re-set to the current time....once the machine displays the Desktop screen....

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.

By changing the clock, you are unable to get files back.

There is a difficult workaround

Good luck.
