Whenever I start my computer I have to reset the CMOS, time and other settings. My computer says the battery is weak. I am using a Windows XP 2 computer. How do I fix this?

    follow the suggestion and replace the CMOS battery unless you suspect malwares installed on PC or BIOS problems....

    Your pc is already suggesting, what you should do.
    Purchase a new one, and replace the cmos battery.

    Hello, your description of your issue describes the solution for it.  How old is your computer?  Usually  CMOS battery last a few years. To fix this issue once and for all, make sure to replace the CMOS battery.  This battery holds settings such as time, date and some other important information for your system to work right.  If it is a desktop, it is not hard to do.  Just open tower and look for a battery similar to the ones used with electronic watches.  It should look similar to what is shown in the next link:
