Looks like you will have to replace the CMOS battery on the motherboard. It looks like a regular lithium battery,and should be available in most computer stores. Please read the following articles for instructions to replace the CMOS:

Reset the BIOS and do a flea power by unplugging the power cord if press down the power button on the desktop for 30 seconds that will release the static power of the system, and if its a laptop then remove the battery, unplug the power adapter and then press down the power button for 30 secs that will release the static power of the laptop. reconnect power and then turn on the system that should take care of the issue and if you still get the error then need to replace the coin battery.

Hope it works all the best.

The CMOS battery is on the motherboard. It is round and silver about the size of a nickel. It maintains the computer's time and bios settings of your pc. It is easily replaced and can be purchased anywhere that sells batteries. It is usually a #2032 but check the battery itself for the correct replacement number.

Chek smos errer


You have described you problem incorrectly. I guess the error mess is "CMOS Cheksome error. " I guess.

This messenger comes due to following situations.
1. CMOS battery low. Check for the CMOS battery (most commonly CR2032) power if it is low this message can appear.
2. BIOS has been reset on purpose or by a fault. Set time date and other settings.
3. Motherboard problem. Rarely motherboard will have this issue with CMOS or with the battery powerline making it to lose CMOS Setteings. Change the motherboard or live with it.

Why do date and time keep setting to default?


Are you sure you replaced the CMOS battery with a fresh one? Did you install it backwards (the plus side should be UP). I've only seen a bad CMOS battery cause that problem. I would try one you know is new and check the installation.

Good luck.

I have hcl notebook p21. Notebook showing simos battery low please give me suggetion what i will do


All AT computers require a small battery on the system board that provides power to the Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) chip, even while the computer is turned off. This chip contains information about the system configuration (e.g., hard disk type, floppy drive types, date and time,bios password and the order in which the computer will look for bootable disks). The CMOS battery allows the CMOS to preserve these settings.

if it becomes low then you can replace this with new one.its very cheap.
you can also replace it yourself.

Cmos checksome error


I don't know what kind of unit you are useing.
You need to watch the screen when it boots up.
It will say check sum error, press ? F-2 to continue or F-1 to enter setup.??
Enter the setup screen and change the date and time.
Save ? F-10 and exit.
I hope this has helped you.

I have a Dell dimension 9150 which is 2 1/2 years old. Does it have a battery that I need to be concerned about replacing. I remember that used to be a problem with computers but don't know if that is...


Hi,
Every PC motherboard has a battery. That battery serves two purposes: to feed the configuration memory (also called CMOS) and to feed the real time clock of the computer (the one that show the date and the time).
An indication it is time to change the motherboard battery is receiving one of the following error messages when you turn on your computer: CMOS CHECKSUM FAILURE, CMOS BATTERY STATE LOW, CMOS SYSTEM OPTIONS NOT SET and CMOS TIME AND DATE NOT SET. Another indicator of a low battery is a clock that, after being set, runs well while the computer is on, but shows the wrong time when the computer is turned on the following day (it is late).

PC start directly


Explain what you mean when you say 'when i open the pc from main switch'.
Also, something you should try is updating the CMOS, or in other words flashing the BIOS firmware. Go to your motherboards manufacturers website and see if there are any BIOS updates for it.

Problem after updating asus bios


The first thing I would try is to clear CMOS. Either set the jumper on the motherboard to do this, or even remove the battery, and wait half an hour or so. When installing a new CPU, and even RAM, you should always clear CMOS.

Cheers
