    does the date remain constant?

  • Anonymous Mar 20, 2014

    I made an error in trying to start up for the first time. How can I get back to the very start of the settings? Each time |I try to do so now, usually a clock with the wrong time starts up.

Not sure if this will help as my previous experience is that the clock starts at 12:00 each time it is started up.

In my case it was a flat computer battery that keeps the BIOS active when shut down, hence it was losing all it's settings each time it was shut down.

Note: This does not explain the looping, so this answer may be one "just to try" if no other answers come up.

Lock ibm bios 0271 error


You need a replacement battery for the CMOS system on your computer.

The CMOS system contains the BIOS settings configuration and also runs the real time clock. If the real time clock does not stay in sync, this can have a negative affect on your installed operating system ( for example, a windows computer will not allow ANY system updates if the difference between your system time date, and the update servers current time and date is offset for 24 hrs. or more)

I have a password problem on my laptop,but not window password it board password please help my out.


If you are talking about the password that is just ask when the comp starts....You can try this...



The power-on password prevents use of the computer until the password is entered. The
setup password prevents unauthorized changes to Computer Setup. To clear the
passwords, you must remove all power from the system board. If you do not know the
passwords, use the following procedure to clear the password:
1. Remove all battery packs.
2. Disconnect the AC power.
3. Remove the real-time clock battery.
4. Wait thirty minutes.
5. Reconnect the AC power. DO NOT INSTALL THE BATTERY!
6. Restart the computer. During Power-On Self Test (POST), a â 162 System Options
not setâ message appears.
7. Shut down the computer, then disconnect AC power again.
8. Replace the real-time clock battery.
9. Install the battery pack(s).
10. Reconnect the AC power.
11. Start the computer.

Time is wrong after turning on the PC


Hi,
Please make sure that you are in the correct Timezone. For example if you are leaving in London the Timezone should say UTC +0 London, Lisbon, etc.
To do this double click on the clock in the tray and set the timezone.

Hello,
The CMOS battery supplies energy to the Real Time Clock when the computer is not connected to the electrical socket, and does not have the battery inserted. It should not prevent the computer from starting up. You will however be asked to reset the time and date of the computer.
Hope it helps.

My laptop compaq armada1700 ask me power-on password what can i do?


Follow the instructions of the service manual for the Armada 1700 (you need to have some skills):

2.2 Clearing Passwords
The power-on password prevents use of the computer until the password is entered. The setup password prevents unauthorized changes to Computer Setup. To clear the passwords, you must remove all power from the system board. If you do not know the passwords, use the following procedure to clear the password:

1. Remove all battery packs from the battery bay and MultiBay, if applicable.
2. Disconnect the AC power.
3. Remove the real-time clock battery.
4. Wait five minutes.
5. Reconnect the AC power.
6. Restart the computer. During Power-On Self Test (POST, a "162 System Options not set" message appears.
7. Shut down the computer, then disconnect AC power again.
8. Replace the real-time clock battery.
9. Install the battery pack(s).
10.Proceed with the troubleshooting procedures.

Point 10 means you need to do the setup via disquette to set the date and time again, to avoid the "162 system option not set" message of the POST.

Troubleshoot Computer Clock


To me that still seems that you may have a virus. A lot of times when you run Norton, Macafee, Spybot the virus knows what you are trying to do and hides it self.
Sometimes you have to use a kinda unknown Anti-Virus program (unknown as in, a lot of people really never heard of it). If I was you I would try this program and run a full scan.

The Program I want you to run is called Malwarebytes, it is a free program.

Steps to run it.

1. install (everything is set as defualt, so just keep pressing next or ok)

2. Run a full scan in normal mode (not Safe mode)

3. You should see something that says Objects infected (if that turns red, and there are number next to it. That is how many virus the program has found) If it does find virus please continue to the next steps, if not you are all set.

4. Once the scan is all done, you will see a button that pops up saying "scan done successful" press the ok button to continue.

5. Now on the bottom right you will see will it says "show results", press that button

6; Next you will see on the bottom Left "delete infected files" make sure you press that button.

7. You should see a note screen pop up, that is just telling you what the software found, just "X" out of that, restart your computer and you should be find.

8. after you restart your computer, the time might still be set as 1899, just fix it and then you should not have that problem again.

I hope this works for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

Forgot BIOS password.


1.) Unplug AC, take out the main battery.

2.) Take out /disconnect the RTC (real time clock) battery for app. half an hour (the period of 5 min as specified in the MSG normally is not long enough).

3.) Plug in the AC adapter (batteries still removed); computer should boot automatically, if not use the power button.

4.) The machine will boot and show the 162-error-msg "system options not set". Use F1 to save the settings.

5.) Shut down the computer and disconnect AC power again.
6.) Re-connect the RTC-battery.
7.) Install the battery pack(s).
8.) Restart the computer.

Caveat: All settings are set back to factory standard.
You'll have to enter a correct date/time and change the settings to your needs.

Note: pls strictly keep to the sequence.
Re-starting with the main battery and or RTC-battery inserted will spoil the job.

Problem running the restore disk for Toshiba A85-S107


I have the same model and i just reformatted the hard drive with the original restore disk and it does loop around several times. That is the way it is suppose to do on this particular restore disk. So don't be afraid if it goes around several times because it is doing different tasks each time it loops.
