Some Palm handhelds will "lose" days if they are not turned on for a period of time. This can be corrected with a soft reset. If this happens to you on a regular basis, you can use DayLossFix Hack to keep your Palm on the right date:

Sony experia m my phone doesn't want to update my watsap, just says my date an my time are incorrect whAt must I do?

it means that your date and time setting are not correct. But sometime that error appeared even when your date and time setting are correct. If so, just ignore it for a day and it will be okay, but make sure you have the exact correct date and time first before ignoring it. FYI: Just using auto date and time doesn't mean your setting is correct the auto can be wrong sometimes

I have finish f1 key in system plz help me


Please provide more details about your problem.

If you are seeing the "F1" prompt soon after turning the computer on, it is likely preceded by details of what has occurred and wants you to confirm the change. Reboot the computer and look at the entire screen and provide the details on the screen so we can help.

Until we get your exact issue, I will cover the basic reasons why you would see

If the message states the DATE AND TIME are incorrect, you will need to replace the small round battery that is on the motherboard. These are typically a battery with 2032 written on them and you can pick them up almost anywhere watch batteries are sold. Replace the battery, boot the computer and then go into BIOS and set the correct date and time.

If something has failed on your PC (like a stick of memory, hard drive, CD ROM drive, etc.) the BIOS would see this change and would prompt you to acknowledge this change and either hit F2 to go into BIOS and fix the issue or F1 to continue booting the computer. IF this is the case, note what has failed and then go into BIOS and either disable the drive or accept the new memory value.

Time and date are not set correctly

When the Date and Time is set in the BIOS setup or in Windows and when you boot up next time and the date and time are incorrect then the problem is a flat BIOS battery. A flat BIOS battery cannot keep the Data and Time stored in the BIOS. Replace the BIOS battery and set the Date and Time etc and the problem will be fixed.

When I turn on the computer, the date and time are incorrect, and mentioned that it is the battery. I need to buy a new or can be fixed?

You need a new cmos battery for your computer, located on the motherboard, it will correct your date and time issues when it is set up, and yes it is worth fixing. Take it to shop you can trust.

I get this message when I boot my computer Strike F1 to retry boot . F2 for setup utility. What does this mean? and what can I do..F1 doesn't do anything and F2 everything looks correct? any assistance...

It means that something is wrong with your setup - my first guess is that your computer backup battery has gone bad, but it may be something else.

Press F1 to retry - if the computer starts, check the system date/time (usually in the right-hand corner of the toolbar - the opposite end of where the Start icon is located).

If the computer does not start, press F2 - you will be entering the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) and you really should not change anythig unless you are familiar with what the terms mean. BUT - it will do no harm to change the date and/or time if they are incorrect.

Exit out and the computer should now boot automatically.

If it DOES boot, then the battery is weak or dead. You will have to shut down the computer, open the case and replace the quarter-sized battery - usually 3volts.

While you are in there, blow out any accumulated dust - and don't forget the power supply.

Close the case and reboot. You will still get the error, but this time, once you reset the date/time the computer will "remember" the settings and you will be good to go for a few more years.

the real date is printed from the computer and the wrong one is the default date from the printer...What you have to do is to get into the settings and correct the date into the printer..Look for the time and date in the main menu ..and select and correct it ..After that restart the printer and the problem will be gone ..This may be an issue resulted from a total reset made or a failure of the internal battery ..
If the dat ewill not be kept set after you correct it means the internal battery need to be changed cause when it is unplugged it will not hold the settings ..

Hi. The clock on my Acer will not keep the correct time any more and it doesnt change dates on the calendar either. Do I need to change a battery in my motherboard?

If you change the BIOS date and time and when you boot up next time and the date and time has changed back or is incorrect, then the most likely fault is a flat BIOS battery. Replace the BIOS battery, it maybe a coin type lithium 3volt battery. this is the most common type used in motherboards is a CR2030 lithium battery.
