Your laptop contains a small battery (aside from the regular battery) that saves CMOS information like time/date and a few other settings. When your computer loses all AC/battery power, the settings are reset to factory.
You'll need to replace this battery, normally it is a regular disk battery that can be purchased at any hardware store. If you're not tech savvy, you can have a professional technician open up your macbook and it won't cost much more than $100.
Problem is not with Dell E197FP LCD Monitor, it happens sometime and the culprit usually
is an empty battery on the motherboard.
The motherboard battery is used when the mains power is off. When your computer detects an
empty battery, it goes into a low-power mode.
The computer will then display as message, like "Power save mode - press
any key on keyboard or move mouse". Better to replace battery:-
open the case of your computer;
visually scan the motherboard for a button-cell battery (it looks like a digital watch battery, but a bit larger);
remove this motherboard battery from your computer;
restart your computer: it should now power up normally (you
may get some warning messages but ignore
set the date and time of your computer using the "Date and Time" control panel;
you can now use your computer normally, but you will lose date
and time settings when you disconnect the computer power cord, since
there is no motherboard battery present to store them;
replace the battery or buy new;
install the new battery in your computer;
restart your computer, and set the date and time again; the settings will now be saved using motherboard battery power.
In another forum I found a solution:
Remove the watch battery from the camera Carefully bend the contacts inside the camera toward the opening that the battery fits into. - I used a heavy safety pin to bend the contacts. Put the watch battery back in.
A bad checksum can be caused by a flat or near flat BIOS battery. Replace the battery and set the date and time.
Also set the BIOS to the default setup, ie go to reload default settings, or remove the BIOS battery for 1/2 hour the insert the battery and set the Date and Time.
BIOS Loses Date and Time (or Changed Settings Not Saved) A coin-cell battery (CR2032) powers the real-time clock and CMOS memory. When the voltage of the CMOS battery drops below a certain level, the BIOS Setup program settings stored in CMOS RAM (for example, the date and time) might not be accurate. If you find that date and time is incorrect or if you make BIOS setting changes but they are not saved, replace the battery with an equivalent one.
Risk of explosion if the battery is replaced with an incorrect type. Batteries should be recycled where possible. Disposal of used batteries must be in accordance with local environmental regulations.
To replace the battery, follow these steps:
Turn off all peripheral devices connected to the computer. Disconnect the computer’s power cord from the AC power source (wall outlet or power adapter).
Remove the computer cover.
Locate the battery on the board.
With a medium flat-bladed screwdriver, gently pry the battery free from its connector. Note the orientation of the “+” and “-” on the battery.
Install the new battery in the connector, orienting the “+” and “-” correctly.
your question is very basic.
if you need to master reset the system to it,s bios default settings.
remove the power, remove the left hand side panel. locate the cmos battery.
remove the battery for 10 seconds, then replace it. replace power lead and reboot.
if you get a message stating cmos settings incorrect, enter bios setup. change time/date settings.
save and exit. Problem Solved.
after changing the battery the problem is suppose to stop but since it continues i think u have to set the date and then save the changes made after saving cos is not all about changing batteries most times too the new batteries u just bought may be bad as well. so set the date and time then save changes i think it shoukld work well.
That's the 2nd time i hear that kind of problem. Your mboard battery is new, and you did not press "f1" at first start.
so i guess , the cmos time is not change, try go to the bios setup and load "bios setup default." after that change the time setting on the bios. please find time setting and set it with a current ime in your area. after setting press 'F10" to save and exit the setting, the system will restart.
