It is possible the internal system battery is dead.
Replacement battery for your model can be found here
They can be replaced yourself if you are comfortable entering the innards of your laptop?!

Hi Rmellon,

I understand that your PC time and dates keeps changing. I suspect the issue is due to the CMOS battery. I suggest you to change the battery. It will not cost you much. I have included the link which clearly shows a video on how to change the real-time clock battery. Please getin touch with me if you need clarification. It is specific to your dv9000 model.

I am pretty sure it is due to the CMOS. Let me know whether it fixes your issue. If you don't wish to do the above you could also try the following

I have an hp pavilion a320n desktop and once turned on it boots through the bios and then stops leaving a cursor blinking in the top left corner


Have you tried your onboard diagnostics? Stop the boot process after your machine boots through the BIOS, with F12 (I believe) You want to get to the boot menu. There you should see diagnostics. Run that.

The other possibility is a bad hard drive. You can test it with the onboard diagnostics. The easiest way to do it is to get into your BIOS and have a look at your boot devices. Your hard drive should be the first device.

How to fix bios setting on hp pavilion a6110n


The best way to reset the BIOS back to the defaults (if there isnt a setting to install the defaults), is to remove the BIOS battery for 15mins. This will drain the charge from the BIOS, insert the battery and then go to the BIOS setting to set the Date and Time.

How do i know if my bios is corrupt


I doubt that you have corrupt BIOS - the BIOS code is held in an EEPROM module which is unlikely to have been altered unless you have suffered some form of electrical failure such as a power surge or lightning strike.

If your computer does not boot nor show the initial boot messages from the BIOS such as memory count, device detection, USB devices or a HP splash screen, then you may have a more fundamental hardware problem.

To reset your BIOS configuration, you could just remove the CMOS battery - usually a CR2032 button cell fitted on the motherboard - for a couple of minutes then refit it again - this will set the BIOS configuration back to default and if the computer does boot, you should get an error message because the Date and Time need to be set again.
Note: make a note of the way the button cell battery is fitted and ensure you put it back in the same way.

open it ...remove the Ram memory ..put it back ...after that remove the bios battery for a few seconds and that is all...when you will reboot will ask to go to bios and set the date and time ....but all you have is to press f1 to go there ..and after that press f10 to save changes and set the date and time when you get in windows cause it is much more easy...

HP Pavilion notebook Model No DV2224EA Product No RY395EA. On pressing the start button almost immediately there is a long beep followed by two short beeps. The computer than seems to stop functioning. ...


this doesnt mean that it's the motherboard, you could have other hardware probems that the beeps refer to depending on bios version, sometimes pressing F1 continues the boot, if so then the time and date should be checked, if wrong, then it's a cmos battery replacement thats needed, this beep can refer to also the graphics or the memory, so if you are able to locate the memory bay, remove and reseat the memory and try again

My hp pavilion dv9000 notebook is lock do u know the unlock code for it?


Hi errol245,

When you say it's 'locked' do you mean you can't access the BIOS (System Setup) information when the computer first boots, or are you unable to get into Windows?
