good day,

your cmos battery is weak(low voltage) it does not save your bios settings every time you configure it or set it to default settings, it will always display cmos error every time you shutdown your PC, try replacing it with a new one, check the old battery model and buy it in your nearest computer shop, commonly used battery in Motherboards is CR2032 Lithium battery..

Hope this helps.

Clock loses time. Have downloaded latest BIOS update but did not fix problem. Do I need to install a new battery and, if so, how? Computer is a HP Pavilion a6030n running Vista 32 bit.

it is advisable to change your CMOS (complementary metallic oxide semi-conductor) battery. this battery helps save and keep up to current your settings even when your shutdown your machine. if it is weak, then it might not keep the settings properly

If this is an older PC (3-5 years or more) then most likely the backup battery on the motherboard has become weak.
On many motherboards this is a coin cell, which can easily be replaced (on others it is soldered in, though), just have a look.

Open your computer BIOS. To do this press F8 when start-up and then once your in the BIOS settings, enter power management section and then look for any settings there relating to temperature automatic shutdown. Save changes and restart computer. If it doesn't solve the problem. Reset your motherboard BIOS to do this, open your computer casing and then look for the BIOS jumper setting, it should be near the CMOS battery. Refer also to the motherboard manual to do this.
Hope this could help..Please don't forget to rate me..:-) Thanks..

Clock not keeping correct time

The CMOS battery keeps the laptop configuration stored in the CMOS chip and the main battery has no effect on the CMOS.
If the date and time drift off, it indicates the CMOS battery is nearly flat and needs to be replaced.
If you had ticked the Daylight saving box in the Time Zone tab in Control Panel - Date and Time setting then the time would automatically adjust for Daylight saving.

Hi stan_z4, do you have the manual for you're board?
I'm showing the P4VMM2 is made by ESC = EliteGroup.
Which is not listed above (Intel D845EPI).
If you do have the board EliteGroup P4VMM2 than turn to page 11 in the user manual. The jumper for the cmos/bios JBAT1, Pins must be set to 1 & 2. If JBAT1 is set to pins 2 & 3 you will reset you're bios every time you boot up.

Don't have you're manual? Click on the link.
