After booting always to F1

The F1 key is often a notice that something is not right in the part of the computer that runs before the operating system (i.e. Windows). What is wrong is usually displayed in the rest of the message. It might be that your "floppy" drive is not working (you may not even have one), or that the "date and time" are not set, or that the chip that sets up your system before Windows starts has been reset to incorrect settings for your configuration.

On most systems there is a key you need to push, usually the DEL key, as the system first starts. (It may also be the F10, F2 or F1) Push that key several times...about 1 time a you start the system. This should take you to the BIOS screen (BIOS being the name of the chip that runs everything before Windows takes over). In there you can look at the date and time...if they are not current, or close to current, your BIOS chip has a problem. If they are current, if you restart and carefully read the message that came up with the F1 key you will know where to look in the BIOS to fix the setting.

If the date and time are not correct you need to have the CMOS battery replaced. This is not the main laptop battery, but the little watch battery used to keep the date and time (and other settings needed) when you have shut the system off and/or disconnected the larger laptop battery.

If it's this problem...the time and date will probably want to take it into a shop and have them change the battery. The little CMOS battery is only a few dollars (under $10) and the labor should be reasonable if that's all that is needed.

I restored my computer and now my clicksmart 420 doesnt work

If you set a restore point then do as --
To set a System Restore Point...
  • Open the Start menu
  • Open the Programs menu
  • Open the Accessories menu
  • Open the System Tools menu
  • Finally, start System Restore
  • Pick the option for setting a System Restore Point and click on the Next button
  • Fill in a name for the restore point so you can find it and click on the Create button
  • Click on the Close button when done
In Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7, if booting all the way into normal mode causes problems, such as features that don't work, freezes, etc., it is possible to backdate Windows itself to an earlier state when it was working properly by restoring a restore point created automatically or manually by or in System Restore.
You should know that System Restore does not back up and restore non-system files or third-party software or any changes made by such software. It also does not involve restoring the data files on the computer. Only the essential files required to get Windows running are involved in the creation of its dated restore points that take the system files back to the date on which a particular restore point was created. Nor does System Restore clean up files left over by a botched software installation, which is a common cause of corrupted system files, and it can't be used to restore selectively files that have been accidentally erased. In other words, System Restore is a very handy tool that has saved my PCs on numerous occasions, but it is not a substitute for a full system backup, such as the creation of a disk image of the system, and should never be relied upon as such.

Some time ago, after installing Windows 7, my Dell 1525 started changing internal clock as it wants: yesterday there was 2010, today is 2021... But it wouldn't be a serious problem if the laptop worked...

Go to and download the latest BIOS update for your system.

Please remember NOT to power down your system when flashing the BIOS.

Reset your system time inside windows and see if system time won't change by it's own. If time is stable, then you fixed it. If system time changed again, the you have to other choice but to replace the CMOS battery.

My computer is no longer coming on.

Try starting in save mode (start tapping F8 after you turn the computer on) and see if it will boot there. If it will, try taking it back in time:

Start > Help and Support > Undo changes made to my computer > Restore my computer to an earlier time. Select a date that is before you flashed the bios, and follow all screen instructions.

The time in my sega dremcast stops when the power to the system is switched off. so the next time i switch it on, the time starts from the time i turned it off last. why does the time not continue to count...

It sounds like your bios battery is dead. There is a small watch type battery that is inside of all the systems. This battery powers a low voltage chip that hold constantly changing information, like the time and date. When this battery dies or is almost dead, this function of the system will no longer work or will act odd till the battery is totally dead.
So, in short, have this battery replaced. I hope this helps.
