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.

CMOS battery failure


This is a very easy and money saving tip for all,whenever your PC on starting shows CMOS battery failure it means nothing so complicate has stopped working just a button cell has lost its charged and needs to be replaced because if don't do so there will be lots of problem such as if you open a mail lets say Google it wont open because CMOS battery stores Time details and if it has stopped working time will be wrong and Google mail wont work so the solution is to just open your PC and you will see a small button like cell which you can remove easily and can be changed.
Hope this tip will help you in your problem.

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.

CMOS battery in the motherboard much measured .3 volt which is a Lithium coin cell battery.check whether the battery gives the correct measurement (recomend to use branded battery like from sony).

Low battery warning


That is because while a computer is in sleep mode, it is still using power to keep the memory. The battery is only used when the computer is turned off. You should replace the battery as soon as you can in order to keep your computer running properly.

Have to set date n time on every start of my computer.Already replaced the battery of the board.But no fruitfull result!


what you need to do is replace the CMOS battery on your motherboard.
unplug the power cord from the wall.
take the cover off your tower by removing the screws and sliding it back and up.
on your motherboard you will see a small ni-cad battery about the size of a nickel.
remove it from its clip and replace it with the same battery number. these are available at any radio shack, walmart, best buy, curcuit city.etc
rplace the cover and boot your computer. set your date and times one last time and it will stay now.
Good Luck
do not do this with the computer power on...

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).

Bios date and time problem


You need to replace the cmos battery in your computer. Theu are usually Cr2032 batteries which you should be able to pick up for about £1.

unplug your computer and open the case.
When you look at the motherboard you should be able to easily locate the cmos battery cliped onto the mobo.
Take the old battery out and insert the new one.
put the case back on and plug the pc into the mains again.
You will need to re-enter the date etc the next time you boot up, but the settings should be retained after that.
