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 />

All laptops have a CMOS, or "Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor," battery.
The main purpose for the CMOS battery is to keep the system time, date and BIOS settings even if the computer is turned off or the main battery dies.
Individual Acer Aspire laptop models differ somewhat, but the general steps are the same when replacing a dead CMOS battery.Preparation

Read through the owner's manual for your particular Acer Aspire laptop to determine what kind of CMOS battery you need.
Purchase the battery through Acer or a local or online computer parts dealer.
Turn the laptop off and unplug it.
Also unplug any external hard drives, cameras or other external devices.
Turn the laptop over (bottom facing up), then touch something metal to remove static charge.
Removal
Remove the Phillips screws that secure the motherboard cover (refer to your owner's manual if necessary), then release the cover from the clips on the bottom of the plastic casing.
Lay the cover aside, then locate the CMOS battery cable on the right side of the motherboard. Unplug the cable, then remove the battery.
Installation
Plug the new CMOS battery cable into the motherboard.
Slide the battery partially under the laptop casing to hold it in place, then align the cover with the slots on the bottom of the laptop housing.
Replace the screws, then turn the laptop back over.
Settings
Plug the laptop in and turn it on.
Enter your BIOS (usually by pressing "F1," "F2," F10" or the "Delete" key) before the operating system loads.
Follow the BIOS prompts or refer to your Acer Aspire owner's manual to reset your time, date and desired system settings.
BIOS Reset
Any time the CMOS battery is unplugged for more than a few seconds, your BIOS will be reset to the default manufacturer settings.
If you make any changes to the BIOS that cause problems with your Acer Aspire, unplug the CMOS battery for 3-5 seconds to correct the problem.

Is my CMOS battery the problem to the time and date not automatically correcting itself, or is it something else?


The CMOS battery is the main cause of your time resetting. Although it usually resets further back. Double check your time setting in the operating system itself. If everything is correct then the source of the problem is more then likely the CMOS battery. Batteries are pretty cheap so not hard to replace. If it is a desktop computer (if you're comfortable with it) open up you computer and what looks similar to a watch battery and that is what you will need to replace.
Note* IF it is the CMOS/ BIOS battery it will only reset the time when you lose power to the computer or turn it off.

Everytime I turn on my computer, I have to do F1 and reset the time and date. How do I replace the battery? It has gotten so bad, sometimes I have to press and hold start button, turns off and restart it


Hi philco1977,

Good day. The BIOS prompts you to press F1 key and reset the time and date in your system. This is caused by a CMOS battery that needs to be replaced in your motherboard which is unable to save the time and settings in your computer. In order to replace the CMOS battery, you must open your computer and in the motherboard you may see a coin cell battery. You can take it out using you hand or you may use a flat screw driver or a knife. Make it sure that when you do the replacement the computer must be turned off. Once you are done with the replacement you may have to go again to the BIOS and reset the settings again including the time and date and it will never prompt you anymore to reset you time and date settings.

Thanks,

allanhunt

My date has to be reset every time I turn on my computer. How do I ensure the date and time is memorised thereby avoiding resetting. Thank you.


most of the cases the main reason behind the date time reset problem occurs due to weak CMOS battery on the motherboard. So, you just need to change your CMOS battery on your motherboard to resolve this problem.

Need to know how to reset power on password for hp


If this is a BIOS Lockout Password, then you would need to Pull the CMOS battery From the laptop... Which most likely means Complete Disassembly of the laptop just to get to the battery... You would have to unplug the battery... Make sure the Laptops Charging Battery is also Removed and the AC Adapter is NOT plugged in...
Once the CMOS battery is removed, Hold the power button down for 30 seconds... then replace the battery and see if it is bypassed/removed..

There is a good chance that the BIOS password is on a security chip on the motherboard and if this is the case, then pulling the CMOS battery will do you no good... You will need to replace the motherboard if this is the case...

Bios lock, ERROR CODE 0271


Hi,
Error code 0271 - Date and time error. Neither the date nor the time is set in the computer.
Run BIOS Setup Utility to reset the time and date
It sounds as though your computer has the wrong time in the CMOS. The CMOS (Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductors) is the chip that holds the basic startup information for the BIOS, system and its peripherals while the system is turned on and off.

If you can get into the BIOS check the date and time settings and make sure they are correct.

It may also be a case of the CMOS battery going out. When this happens your computer will tend to not keep the correct time. They are cheap and relatively easy to replace. Before buying a new batter your can try to take it out and let it sit for about 10 minutes or so to reset the CMOS and then go put the battery back in and go into the BIOS and reset the clock.

Hopefully taking the batter out or replacing it will get past your lock icon asking for the password. Just search for CMOS or BIOS default password for your brand of laptop.
