If you have changed your CMOS battery then it is more likely a hardware failure, mother board. but first check the contacts of the CMOS battery. clean it well and tighten if u can by lifting the contacts a little. if it is a button type battery. if it is a board mount type, then you have to refer to ASUS service to check the main board.

    As mentioned above and also try going into your BIOS and manually setting the date and time. Also check for viruses etc. A long shot but I do remember many years ago there was a virus that was acting in a similar way.

Do I need security to stop hacking on my Asus notebook


If you don't have a Anti Virus on your computer your asking for trouble. Most likely it came with Anti Virus, is it Current? Up-to-date? The best security is a informed/aware computer user. That said, a Good Anti Virus and Anti Malware can't hurt. When your Laptop isn't in use, turn in off. Unplug.

How to reset the hard disk


What do you mean reset the hard disk? There's no such thing. Exactly what is it that you are trying or wanting to do? What type of problem are you having that makes you think your hard disk needs resetting?

Are you talking about Formatting the Disk which wipes it out completely and makes it unusable until you reinstall the operating system?

Are you talking about doing a System Restore which takes your computer back to a certain date and time before you started having problem. And it keeps your documents, music, pictures, videos, programs (unless the program was installed after the date you selected).

Are you talking about a System Recovery which sets your computer back to the first time you brought it home after you purchased it. You will lose all your data, documents, music, pictures, videos and program that you installed.

ASUS U50F Notebook - since purchased January 2010 the date changes by itself sometimes going ahead other times back to November 2009. Wondering if they have a fix for it yet!! Best Buy where I purchased...


Check the timezone if it is right. Timezone must base were you live. For example, if I live in Hongkong, this is my correct timezone - (UTC+08:00) Beijing, Chongqing, Hong Kong, Urumqi. Check also if the the settings of your date and time is set to windows. If it set to windows then the timezone is set to US then you live in Hongkong your date and time will always adjust to the time of US even if you always adjust your date and time to Hongkong. I hope my explanation is clear to you. =)

Date reverting back to 2002


Somewhere inside your laptop is a small watch battery. Refer to the manual to find it's location. This battery powers CMOS. Find this battery and replace it with a new one and it will solve your problem.

The BIOS battery is nearly flat and this is causing the time to drift.

The battery that might be dead is not the main battery. It's the cmos battery, which is a coin cell battery located on the motherborad. It stores the setting in the bios and keeps the date and time accurate. Errors 161 and 163 mean the date and time are wrong. If the cmos battery is dead then, the date and time go back to 1/1/2000 every time the pc is restarted. Thus, you get the "wrong date and time" errors 161 and 163.
