In my PC one problem is very bad. When I switch on my computer, it does not update my time and date automatically. I think it is a problem of CMOS battery, but I don’t like to replace it with new one. I have to repair it. Can I do this at home or do I have to buy a new battery? Thank you for solving my problem.

  • akkil

    When I plug my PC to the's power button light on for 2 seconds and off it and light on it again
    for 2 seconds and off before I switch on. when I switch on the PC it's BIOS screen says
    "The firmware has detected that a CMOS battery failure occured. press the enter to continue"
    after pressing enter it's says
    "The firmware has detected that a CMOS checksum error the enter to continue"
    after pressing enter again and it's says
    "The firmware has detected that the system date/ time has not been the enter to continue"
    after log on by pressing enter then my date is set as 01/01/2007 and time set as 12.00AM
    there for every time after log on I have to set the correct date and time.
    I changed BIOS as default setting and replace a new CMOS battery and update BIOS . also I reset BIOS jumper but nothing happend.
    then I changed my power supply unit and plugged it to the electricity but result is same.

    how can I solve this? please help me.

    The battery cannot be repaired and the cost of a replacement is hardly anything. Do as Bruce suggests and replace the battery.

      I also have the same problem like this.So i buy a new battery and i've replace the battery. But after i'd replace the battery,my pc wont be able to start.What should i do?

  • Bruce Epper

    Just replace the battery. It is a simple process that anyone can do. Unless it is an extremely old computer that has the battery soldered in (highly unlikely).
