Change the date in the bios and not stored help me plz.. THNX


The date is not stored because the BIOS battery is flat. Replace the BIOS battery with a new one, most likely it is a 3 volt lithium battery type CR2032 then go into the BIOS setting and set the Date & Time.

Computer start but monitor goes in power safe mode . What can I do ?


Typically, this happens on a computer which is a few years old, since its batteries will have run out after such a long time.

The motherboard battery is used to store various settings, such as date and time, when the mains power is off. When your computer detects an empty battery, it goes into a low-power mode.

The solution is to replace the button-cell battery on the motherboard of your computer:

  • open the case of your computer;
  • visually locate the motherboard (the main electronic circuit board) of your computer;
  • visually scan the motherboard for a button-cell battery (it looks like a digital watch battery, but a bit larger);
  • remove this motherboard battery from your computer;
  • restart your computer: it should now power up normally (you may get some warning messages during the start-up sequence, but ignore them);
  • set the date and time of your computer using the "Date and Time" control panel;
  • you can now use your computer normally, but you will lose date and time settings when you disconnect the computer power cord, since there is no motherboard battery present to store them;
  • take the motherboard battery to an electronics store and get a replacement;
  • install the new battery in your computer;
  • restart your computer, and set the date and time again; the settings will now be saved using motherboard battery power.

It sounds like the CMOS battery(s) are dead. They hold the most recent boot information including current date. Assuming both machines are on the older side, it's entirely possible the CMOS batteries no longer are providing enough power to retain this information.

Battery to change as do not keep the time date.


Hi:
Your compaq mini tower has a coin type battery that is mounted to the motherboard that keeps the time and date. It usually is a cr2032 , but you need to take the side cover off of your tower, with the tower unplugged, and locate the battery. take note of how it is installed. It is a 3 volt lithium battery that you can buy at most stores for about $2-3 and is easy to swap out.
Give it a try, and your computer will remember after you reset everything!

CMOS battery is bad.
You need to change the CMOS battery. The battery is on the motherboard. It is the size of a quarter. Ussually has the number 2032 on it. You can purchase it in Best Buys or an office supply store.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Dell monitor dialog box says monitor is in the power save mode


Actually, it most likely is not the monitor which is in "power save mode", it is the computer itself.

When you cannot get a computer out of "power save mode" by any other means, typically the cause is that the button-cell-type battery of your computer, which is located on the motherboard, is empty.

Usually, this happens on a computer which is a few years old, since its batteries will have run out after such a long time. (The motherboard battery is used to store various settings when the computer power is off, such as date and time. When your computer detects this battery is empty, it goes into a low-power mode).

The solution is to replace the button-cell battery on the motherboard of your computer:
  • open the case of your computer;
  • visually locate the motherboard (the main electronic circuit board) of your computer;
  • visually scan the motherboard for a button-cell battery (it looks like a digital watch battery, but a bit larger);
  • remove this motherboard battery from your computer;

  • you can now use your computer normally, but you will lose date and time settings when you disconnect the computer power cord, since there is no motherboard battery present to store them;
  • take the motherboard battery to an electronics store and get a replacement;
  • install the new battery in your computer;
  • restart your computer, and set the date and time again; the settings will now be saved using motherboard battery power.
