    What happens exactly, does it completely lose the time where you have to reset it at start up or does it lose hours or minutes? And you say it's plugged in?

If the clock is losing hours but the minutes are correct, then make sure you have the time zone set correctly. If you have to reset the time and date at start up, them the C-mos battery is shot and needs replacing. The C-mos is under the battery. It's in a yellow pouch with two wires leading to a connector. In order to get to the connector you will need to remove the keyboard. You can get a new one at Bestbuy or possibly Radio Shack.

My 5c won't keep correct time and won't stay connected to wifi or Bluetooth


The first thing I would do is to make sure the time zone is set correctly. Right click on time then click adjust time clock. This will bring up the option to change the time zone. Then I would make sure I have all my windows updates. The next task is to download malware bytes and run it along with your virus protection, because a computer infection can cause this. Then if after all that doesn't work, then you will need a new cmoss battery.

Why is my toshiba Satellite P-850 clock loosing time


It *might* be
- that the "CMOS battery" (normally a coin cell about 13mm in diameter) is dead, in which case you should replace it.
- The crystal which stabilizes the RTC has drifted.
- If this problem has always occurred it may be the that the RTC chip is defective, but this is highly unlikely, and even less likely to have developed a fault with time.
- if you connect to the internet frequently (several times per day) the above can be ruled out (I think).

You need to set the correct date and time in your system BIOS. To access that you need to press the correct key when the computer is first booted (usually DEL or F10/F2/F11).
Most computers will have a message stating press xx Key to enter setup or etc.
If this problem persists even after setting the correct time in your BIOS, your laptop needs a new CMOS battery. I recommend having a professional do this.

The RTC (Real Time Clock) battery charges when the computer in on (operating). You can plug the electrical cord in and let the computer run for 24 hours by temporarily suspending any sleep mode or automatic power saving features. This should sufficiently charge the RTC battery.

Laptop's clock runs slow.


A near flat battery will cause the laptop to lose the time and date even if you change the BISO time and date, it will still lose time.
To get into the BIOS setup press F2 as you boot up the laptop.
Check the various settings and you will get to the time and date setting, follow the screen instructions to set the time and date.
I suggest you get a new battery installed before you change the time and date.

Times of day clock stopped when i on my inspiron laptop 1525 times of day clock stopped


you are experiecing with your CMOS battery so:

try taking the CMOS battery out
leaving for 30 seconds
make sure it's all unplugged from the wall
do that first
then press the power button after the 30 seconds
to drain all power
then put battery back in
and plug in and turn on

and if still problem remains then you need to change your CMOS battery.

Thanks and do not forget to rate answers.

Laptop Clock loses time


This is a sure sign that your CMOS battery needs replacing, but you may need to take to a qualified repairer as the battery can be hard to access or even locate.
