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!

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.
http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules


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.

Start-up and shut down problems, When starting up it says, press f1 to continue, f2 to run set-up.... F1 works but I am getting tired of doing this. Now when the computer starts, it stops at...


Hi names Rui,


For your problem the computer may display a prompt to press F1/F2 or any other key to enter setup each time the computer boots as a reminder on how to enter CMOS. However, if the computer asks to press F1/F2 (or another key) to enter setup and does not continue, this may be caused by any of the below reasons.

  1. New hardware has been recently installed.
  2. Error or confliction with settings in CMOS.
  3. CMOS battery is bad or failing.
Solution:

New hardware has been recently installed

If new hardware has been recently installed into the computer, it is likely that you are receiving the prompt "Press F1 or F2 to enter setup" because CMOS needs to verify that the new detected hardware is properly being setup in CMOS. Enter CMOS setup and save the settings and exit. If you continue to get errors continue to the next step.


Error or confliction with settings in CMOS

If no new hardware has been added or you continue to get this prompt verify no error or conflictions exist in CMOS. Press the key to enter setup and verify that all settings are correct.

If your time and date are not set correctly, your battery is more than likely bad. Try setting the correct time and date, save the settings and then reboot. If after turning off the computer the time and date get reset again replace the battery.

If the time and date are correct and everything else appears to be correct try resetting the CMOS values to the defaults.


CMOS battery is bad or failing

If you continue to receive the prompt to enter setup each time the computer boots up and you have attempted to follow the above suggestions, your CMOS battery is bad. We recommended that the CMOS battery be replaced.


hope this will help you.

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,

AFTER SWITCHING ON, SCREEN STAYS FROZEN AFTER SAYING CMOS CHECKSUM ERROR- DEFAULTS LOADED


Hi there,

When starting your PC, the following error message is displayed:

CMOS wrong
CMOS MEMORY size WRONG
CMOS Checksum Bad
CMOS checksum error defaults loaded
Warning! CPU has been changed please re-enter cpu settings in the cmos setup and remember to save before quit!
You are prompted to:

Press F1 to resume
Press F2 to load default values and continue


This is due to the fact that the CMOS, which contain data related to the BIOS, has been reinitialized and that your PC has been reset to factory settings.

Solutions:

Reinitializing the BIOS
  • Change BIOS battery
    • If the problem persist this may be due to the fact that the battery powering the CMOS (when the computer is shut down allows the CMOS to store information), is depleted.
    • The CMOS battery is a small pin found on the mother board, you can refer to the manual provided with your motherboard to change it or have the nearby computer technician change it for you if you don't want to risk any damage.
    • More information with: Replacing the battery of your motherboard (CMOS battery)
Post back if it is not working we will be happy to help you.
Hope this helps.
Cheers!!!!

When i turn on my laptop it gives me the option to hit f2 for setup. i restored default settings and still i get nothing. waht is wrong with it?


Usually this will be prompted with this if your CMOS battery on your laptop motherboard gone weak. Just replace the CMOS battery which is inside your laptop by yourself or by giving to a service center. Then after that restore the default settings and restart your laptop. It wont prompt you to press F2

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).

MY LAPTOP(hp compaq presario v2000)BEEPS TWICE AND DISPLAYS PRESS F1 TO RESUME OR F2 TO SETUP!pls help


Hi, and welcome to FixYa
The computer may display a prompt to press F1/F2 or any other key to enter setup each time the computer boots as a reminder on how to enter CMOS. However, if the computer asks to press F1/F2 (or another key) to enter setup and does not continue, this issue can be caused by any of the below possibilities.
1. New hardware has been recently installed.
2. Error or confliction with settings in CMOS.
3. CMOS battery is bad or failing.
Solution:
New hardware has been recently installed
If new hardware has been recently installed into the computer, it is likely that you are receiving the prompt "Press F1 or F2 to enter setup" because CMOS needs to verify that the new detected hardware is properly being setup in CMOS.

Error or confliction with settings in CMOS
If no new hardware has been added to the computer or the new hardware has been removed and you continue to receive the error, it is likely that there is an error or confliction with the CMOS. Press the key requested to enter setup and verify that all settings are correct. If everything appears to be correct try resetting the CMOS values to the defaults and/or Reset Configuration Data. Additional information about how to do this can be found on document CH000976.
If all settings appear to be correct, save changes and exit CMOS setup. If the error continues to appear, enter setup again and restore all CMOS values to default.
· See our CMOS page for additional help and information with the CMOS.
· Additional information about getting into the CMOS / BIOS setup can be found on document CH000192.
CMOS battery is bad or failing
If you continue to receive the prompt to enter setup each time the computer boots up and you have attempted to follow the above suggestions, it is also possible that the CMOS battery may be bad or failing. Generally; when this occurs, the computer is not holding the time or date correctly. If this is occurring it is recommended that the CMOS battery be replaced.
