My Acer Aspire 5100 clock keeps falling behind...

Hi, I keep resetting the clock of my Acer Aspire 5100 laptop and it keeps slowly (over a few weeks) falling behind. I was just wondering if anyone had ever had this problem and if anyone knows a potential solution. I have had a few people say that it is the internal battery, but I'm not sure.

And help you can offer?

If the clock is consistently being resetted then most likely you have a failing cmos battery. you need to dismantle the laptop in order to have access to the cmos battery. you need to fina a COIN type battery.

Clock will not keep time comp..is only 4 weeks old plus the touch pad freezes up from time to time


Hi,
The reason the clock won't keep time and date is because the CMOS battery is dead, this battery inside the laptop keeps the date and time in the BIOS even when the laptop has no power to it.
I recommend you take the laptop back to where you bought it from or call the manufacturer as you are still covered by the warranty.
They will either arrange for the laptop to be sent in or send you to a service center.
It's also a good idea to mention that the touchpad freezes too.



Regards.

Power cuts off for acer aspire 5100


Hi,
I,d suspect your problem will lie with, the systems CPU ( Processor ) or a component Overheating on the systems Motherboard. I would,nt suspect the Power Supply personally. unless your batterys not charging.

Acer Aspire 5100-5840 USB Problems


Is your laptop still under warranty? I would go to the manufacturer first if it is.
If not:
the system clock is run by the CMOS battery. When low will cause a host of problems. Change it and let me know if this fixes your problem.

If you are able, when the pc is booting up keep pressing F8, this will take you to safe mode and not allow the graphics driver to run. When in the safe mode options, select either Last known good configuration or start windows in safe mode. Last known good configuration should find the last good system settings, when it reboots. Start windows in safe mode allows you to go into windows using the administartor account, and then you should select system restore and restore back to the day before or just before you updated the graphics driver.
