Question about Acer Aspire 5630 Notebook

BIOS Date and time not advancing

Hi. I have an Acer Aspire 5630 laptop that keeps losing time. When the BIOS screen is selected (F2 at boot) I have noticed that the System date and time stays static and despite upgrading the BIOS to 3.23, it still fails to change. I am able to overtype and update it but clearly there is something else wrong. My guess was that the CMOS battery had died but looking at forums, it would seem that other bad stuff would happen if that were the case. Does anybody have experience of this please? Thank you for any help and advice. Steve

I experience that already, system date /time is loosing, You need to replace the cmos battery and set the time in the bios setup.

Hi,

It may happen if the BIOS setting are corrupted, please load the BIOS deafults, to do so
1. Shutdown the computer.
2. As soon as you hit the power button to turn it ON, keep on tapping the F2 key, it will go to BIOS screen
3. Press F9 (click "Yes", if you are prompted) and then press F10 (Click "Yes", if you are prompted), it will restart the computer.
4. Now, keep on tapping F8 key, now select "Safemode with Networking" from the Advance boot menu. Try to connect to internet. If you are able to connect to Internet then the issue is with the firewall on you computer, contact the firewall manufacture or settings. If you are still unable to connect to Internet, then the internet setting are not correct, you may need to contact the ISP.

Thanks and regards,
Jitha

Hi Charles, I apologize for the inconvenience. In this case what you could try is to get into the BIOS screen for the laptop by pressing the F2 key as soon as you turn on the laptop.Once you are in the BIOS screen please use the right arrow key to select the tab "Boot" below boot make sure that the hard drive is the 1st boot device(you can change the order by using the F5 and F6 keys) and then load the default settings in BIOS using the F10 key and select "YES" and the computer would restart once.In case after performing the above steps the issue still persists then the issue is with the hard drive on the laptop not being detected and if the computer is still covered by warranty please contact Acer and do get the laptop repaired or else you could have a local technician replace the hard drive for you.
Best wishes for your effort.Thank you for your time and patience.

Hi. The clock on my Acer will not keep the correct time any more and it doesnt change dates on the calendar either. Do I need to change a battery in my motherboard?


If you change the BIOS date and time and when you boot up next time and the date and time has changed back or is incorrect, then the most likely fault is a flat BIOS battery. Replace the BIOS battery, it maybe a coin type lithium 3volt battery. this is the most common type used in motherboards is a CR2030 lithium battery.

How can I password-protect all files on my laptop?


Hi there.
You can set a bios and hard drive password either by using Acer Empowering Technology application or entering the bios itself by restarting the computer and hit F2 while its just starting up, make sure you keep your password safe because if you forget the the passwords you may find yourself locked out of your own computer and bios passwords are very hard to crack.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

My acer laptop won't boot pass the acer logo sign.


Try this - go to BIOS (while you see ACER logo press F2 (or other key, it should be shown below the logo)) and select setting called something like "Restore Defaults" or "Load System Defaults" or "Optimal Settings". When it asks "Are you sure", pres Y then Enter. Tell me what happens.

Format pc laptop


if you wish to do a full system factory recovery, on boot up press Alt & F10, or press F2 or Del on boot up, select the cdrom as first boot device and insert windows cd, save settings and exit for a reboot.

When prompted to press enter to boot from cd, do so and the option to repair or install will appear, choosing install will format your drive.

That's weird. can you check that you have the proper timezone settings under "date/time settings" and that your system is not automatically syncing itself through the "Internet Time" tab?
