CMOS is a memory chip on your computer that stores BIOS information as well as system clock. It powered by a 3V backup battery. If your computer is more then 3 years old it is possible that the backup battery on your PC needs to be replaced. Replace your battery then go to BIOS setup and adjust your date and time. But it is also possible that the clock is a bit off, so first your can just try to adjust your clock without replacement of the battery. You can also do it inside the windows from control panel. Be sure you have a correct time zone.

Good Luck!

What is mean CMOS battery use for in computer motherboard ?


CMOS stands for Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor. It is basically a chip in the mother board that stores information such as your system hardware settings and date and time. It is powered by a battery the size of a small coin. Without the CMOS battery, your computer will revert to original manufacture hard ware settings every time you turn on your computer. If you keep having to set the correct date and time of your computer every time you turn it on, then it's time to replace the CMOS battery. I hope that helps.

Clear cmos how to;'?


What type of computer and motherboard ?????
WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.

Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source.

Power down the system and disconnect the power cord.
Wear an anti-static wrist strap to avoid electrostatic discharge damage to the Asus motherboard or CMOS chip or other sensitive components.

Remove the cover and locate the CMOS coin cell battery and remove it from the system by gently pushing on the retaining clip and popping the battery out although on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

Discharge the CMOS chip by leaving the battery out of the system for up to an hour, depending upon the particular chip and motherboard combination.

Replace the battery and replace the cover on the system. Connect the power cord and boot the computer.

Save changes if prompted by the BIOS for system memory, drives detected, and other settings, and set the date and time if prompted at this time, or alternately set the date and time when the operating system finishes loading.
If your computer does not have a CMOS battery or you're unable to find it you'll need to do a hard reset on the CMOS using a jumper or dip switch on the motherboard.Information on finding these can be found through your computer or motherboard documentation.
or you might set failsafe or optimised defaults
Restart your computer
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key
this will vary depending on your computer and operating system

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaultsor load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

P4P800 - VM BIOS Version 1012 to Upgrade 1018 Now CMOS can't save Date & Time


I'm sorry to have to say this but your CMOS battery connection is bad. There is basically nothing you can do other than replace the whole motherboard if it is too much of a problem.

One of my many computers is like this as well. I'm lucky in that as long as I leave that computer plugged in (it doesn't need to be turned on just plugged in), the CMOS won't reset its self. If you aren't that lucky then I would seek out a replacement motherboard.

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

How to connect cmos cables for this motherboard series?


The date and time are incorrect. The CMOS battery may need changing unless you haven't set the date and time.

Press either F2 or Delete on boot.

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).
