    I did not replace the Laptop bat. but I did replace the CMOS bat I coulodn't find the exact one Maxell ML1220 but did find the cross ref to Energizer 1216, after replacing the bat, I did download from acer the win BIOS ( the flash program) as well as the latest BIOS version, when attempting to install it, it stated that the BIOS was already that version and wouldn't continue. is there a jumper? where if so, I just got this a few days ago ( 3rd owner) and honistly know very little about laptops, they aren't like the PCs that I build, I've only poped the case just enough to see and change the CMOS bat, and thats about it. so I dont know know to take it all apart.. I ordered the restore set, so Id kinda like it running right before I use it, I have a temp OS on it now... should I go in and use defaults? just not sure I guess, Ive never had this issue before that wasnt fixed with the bat..

Advent 5431 date keeps changing back to 2008


IS your TimeZone is Correct?
Right click on your clock, choose Adjust Date/Time.
Click Time Zone Tab. Make sure your Time zone is correctly set.


Boot into the BIOS (setup) screens and check the date and time there. If the date is off by years then that verifies you need a new CMOS battery. Do not confuse the CMOS battery with the large external battery you run the computer with.

My htc freestyle keeps changing the order of my texts. it puts all texts ive sent on top and ones received on the bottom, how do i change it?


try going to menu, settings, date & time, and make sure the information is correct where it says "set date" and "set time." if either is wrong, enter the correct information. that should fix it.
what happened is your phone thought you were sending a message earlier or later in time than you actually were, while whoever you're texting was sending messages on time. soooo all of your messages end up clustering at the top or bottom depending on if your phone's date & time is set early or late.

Date time not set


When you change the date and Time to the correct Date and Time and when you next boot up the laptop the Date and Time is lost. Then this is caused by a flat BIOS battery which cannot keep these setting stored in the BIOS.
Replace the BIOS battery then go into the BIOS setting to set the Date and Time and this will fix your problem.

Laptop date and time setting get disturbed automatically when i reboot my laptop


When you boot up and the Date & Time is wrong then you correct the Date & Time, then when you shut down and boot up again the Date and Time has changed. This is an indication that the BIOS battery is flat and you need to replace the BIOS battery. Install a new BIOS battery, go into the BIOS setting and set the Date & Time etc. and the new battery will keep your settings stored in the BIOS.

I set date & time on my acer aspire, but it will not stay set it just stays on the date & time ive set. help! fred.


Welcome to FixYa!

-try doing these steps.
1) Enter the CMOS setup
-to enter the CMOS or BIOS setup, shutdown the computer completely -then once you press the power button to turn it on, keep on tapping on F2. (for some computer its F1, del, F10)
2)In the main or system setup screen you should be able to see the date and time. Using your arrow keys, navigate to the date and change the date. Once highlighted on the month, day, or year, press your arrow keys or your page up / page down keys to change the date.
These steps may vary for your BIOS; additional help, information, and simulations can be found on the BIOS help page.
3)after you have configured the time and date, save your settings and exit.
4)if it still would'nt hold the time you have setup, it could be a possible virus issue, or the CMOS battery on your computer could be degraded.
Hope this steps would help!
Have a great day!

Easy way is to run the setup utility and clear the date and time - else go into BIOS and change the date and time to the correct ones. If it keeps reverting then you need to put a new battery in.

Batterie


Your internal CMOS battery(button battery) needs to be replaced. That keeps your date & time always working. Therefore when your main Battery runs out and external power is not present the date and time goes back to the date of manufacture.....sodeep
