System Time/Date in BIOS setup not functional

With a new motherboard and fresh windows installation, the time-date display on screen during BIOS setup is frozen and cannot be changed; disconnecting the power supply and replacing the battery does not solve this problem. Any other suggestion?

    Resetting the BIOS with jumper settings (the pin 1 and pin 2 routine) does not solve the problem.

  • Anonymous Mar 21, 2014

    Bought 6 Lenovo M73 Model 10B6, first shipments of a new Intel motherboard for Lenovo. Of three of these machines put in service so far, all three have failed BIOS updates, leaving me with machines that won't boot and don't even display the opening Lenovo logo boot screen. Not sure about the first one, but the last two failed to install a Lenovo-supplied BIOS update.

    That's 3 out of 3, all identical, and all dead. Using the jumper to reset the BIOS to defaults does not work, and I can't get into the BIOS setup screens. No beep codes. Have power, can hear drive spin up. Moved one drive to another machine and it started up without problems. I like Lenovo's and previously had good luck with them.

    Can you confirm that there is a wider BIOS update problem with this new model? I've been a tech for 30 years, and I've never seen anything like this.

My Camera keeps asking me for the date and time every time I turn it on How do i stop this?


Press the m button during shooting or playback to display the setup menu. The setup menu provides access to a variety of camera settings, including options not listed in the function menu, display options, and the time and date. Once you have the date and time set it should stop asking.

My computer dont display any thing . But when i remove smps supply cmos bettery and ram. Then put in each place to run the computer. And gives cmos checksum error. What i do as that.


This error is not the same as a CMOS Checksum Error, which refers to corrupted values of the CMOS settings, the ones you set through the BIOS setup program. This error means the contents of the BIOS code itself are damaged.


During the boot process you will see on the screen a certain key to press to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
You will also need to set the time and date

In the main or system setup screen you should be able to see the date and time Using your arrow keys navigate to the date and change the date. Once highlighted on the month, day, or year, press your arrow keys or your page up / page down keys to change the date.
hope this helps

If you have reset the CMOS memory you need to go into the BIOS setup screen and reconfigure the BIOS. To do that you need to press a key while the computer is booting. Usually F2 but can be other keys. It should tell you on the bottom of the first screen which key to press to enter BIOS setup.

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).
