How do you set the system date and time


To set the Date & Time, go into the BIOS setting - date 7 time.
When you set the Date & Time and you get this error again when you next boot up your computer, then most likely you have a flat BIOS battery.
Then replace this battery, it could be a coin size battery - 3 volt lithium battery type CR2032. and then go into the BIOS setting and set the Date & Time.

How to verify that the CMOS battery needs to replace


<p>The CMOS battery is named after the Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor power. The CMOS has the current date and time functions for desktop and laptop computers. It allows the computer to automatically adjust the time, even on computers that are disconnected for long time. When a computer no longer has the date and time and forget it on every boot, the CMOS battery probably needs replacing. Some computers have messages when the battery is weak, while others just lose the current date and time after each shutdown.<br /> <p>Time & Date Errors<span> </span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p>1. Turn on the computer. Look in the task bar at the bottom right. Make sure the date and time is set correctly. Double-click the time and click the up or down arrow to switch to the correct time. Click on the arrow next to month to change the month. Click "OK" when finished.<br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Turn off the computer. Wait 3 to 5 minutes and start the machine.<br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Look on the taskbar to see if time was lost and said a strange date January 1, 2000. Replace the CMOS battery, if this is the case.<br /> <p><br /> <p>CMOS Error Message<br /> <p>1. Look for error messages like "CMOS checksum error", "CMOS Read Error" or "CMOS battery failure" when you start your computer. These errors are caused in the machines shut down for several months or when the CMOS must be replaced.<br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Let the computer on for 24 hours. Restart the computer and find the error.<br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Change the CMOS as the return error.<br />

ASUS Eee Box EB1501P how to replace battery


It very hard to find the battery. You have to remove the motherboard totally from the plastic case. There is a screw under wifi microcard so you have to unscrew that first on the left hand side when you have the pc the connection side (hdi, vga, power etc) facing you.
The CMOS battery is on the rear side under the side where the RAM, HD, CPU fan and the CPU is located. I managed to bend it up enough to get a screwdriver into the holder and release the battery. Good luck.

Bad back-up battery


If the computer cannot keep the Date and Time after you set it and when you boot up next time the Date and Time has changes or not set then the BIOS battery is flat and needs to be replaced.
When you remove the case the BIOS battery most likely will be a coin size 3volt lithium battery, type CR2032.
After replacing the BIOS battery, boot up the computer and go into the BIOS setting and set the Date & Time etc.

Alert! system battery voltage is low


Hello there and welcome to fixya
This is a very common issue with these desktop units the cmos battery will only last from 2 t0 5 years depending on how it is used.
This battery sits on the motherboard so you will want to first unplug the computer then remove the outer cover to expose the internal parts then look for a coin sized silver battery that looks like a watch battery then replace the battery with a new one
radio shack has these then power up the computer and you will have to reset the time and date ok you will get a error about this. here is what the battery looks like

Low battery alert at start up. must always type


The only battery in a desktop PC is the CMOS battery. This is a 10c sized silver disc that is held in a plastic black clip on the Motherboard. It can be clipped out and easily replaced. they are 3.6v and somewhere like Radio Shack etc. will have them.

Date on my notebook keeps going back to 2002?


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.
