This is only happening about every 10 tenth time I start the computer. When the computer is turned on, a message is displayed (white text and black background) that the "CMOS/GPNV Checksum Bad, CMOS Date/Time Note Set, Press <F4> to Run SETUP".
Windows XP is started and the time for the computer is set to January 1, 2002 01:00AM. I can manually change the date/time in Windows to the correct time. However, this is happening only occasionally. How can I prevent this from happening?
I have ran anti-virus scan and no viruses were found. Also, downloaded the latest version of Adaware and Spybot Search & Destroy and scanned the computer, nothing was found. Ran Disk Defragmenter and ScanDisk and no errors were found.

This is a first...

A friend was visiting for three days and a few things seemed to change. He shut off my monitor when not using the PC. It didn't come back on when I hit the power, so I hit the menu button and tried to get the thing up & running. I didn't get into the monitor's menu.

That's the only thing that was done differently. Now XP asks for the CMOS setting every time I boot up. It asks for standard (F1) or advanced (F2). When I do the standard setting, my computer starts back to the year 2002 at 12pm.

How can I get things back to normal, when I turn the PC on and it boots up in XP like always?

THANK YOU!
Joe

If the date changes, chances are that the CMOS battery needs to be replaced. Just a co-incidence on timing and your friend, I'd say.

Hi I've run into an issue with my CMOS. I'm using a Lenovo Y40-70 and the CMOS version that is currently installed is 99CN28WW(V1.11) and the EC version is 99EC28WW(V1.11). I had read somewhere that when you start to have problems with the CMOS you should flash it or update it. I tried that and got the following error message: The version of ROM file is the same as that of BIOS.This is true as I checked that the latest update for CMOS is 99CN28WW on the site. So here is my problem... My system is losing the date & time when I shut it down. For instance if I shut the laptop down at 7:40PM on Jan 1, when I boot it up the next day it will still be Jan 1 at 7:40PM. I have to manually go into the CMOS and change the date and time everytime I turn the laptop off and turn it back on. If I do not turn it off, it is fine, but I prefer to turn it off when I'm not using it. I've read that the best way to combat this type of CMOS problem is to install a new CMOS battery.  My question is how do I go about doing that? Do I need a special setup for it? The reason I aks is because I bought a standard CMOS battery at a local store and when I opened up the laptop the CMOS is actually in a black wrapper. When I unwrapped it there were two connectors on the battery itself which leads me to believe that perhaps I need to buy a specialized battery with the connectors already installed. Is that the case? If so where do I get that? If not how do I get those little connectors ... Read more

I have a HP Pav 13 x360 Win 10. The main battery has the CMOS included inside it or it doesnt have one, I have heard both. The error persists with the battery uninstalled, using only AC power.

It all started with plugged in, not charging. Then got CMOS checksum is in invalid on startup. Changed battery 3 times (twice from HP and once from me)

Gave up and set it aside for months. Took it to a tech who could not find anything wrong with it. It was charging normally and told me it just needed to be at 0 for a while and should work fine. It booted with no error.

It is now showing the error again but is charging. Could it be a motherboard error if it happens without a CMOS? I have updated it and flashed the BIOS.

The first thing to try is a new CMOS battery. They are a coin-sized silver battery held under a clip on the motherboard inside the PC.

If this battery fails, the CMOS contents get scrambled. Its worth a try first as its a cheap fix.

It could be a failed CMOS ROM, but until you eliminate a failed battery you cant tell.

Okay, I'm not to sure on this. I've done plenty of searching also with no luck. This is for the 5420 series but I'm sure they're probably similar. Turn the laptop over. There should be a plate above the internal fan that should come off. Once you unscrew it and take it off you should see part of the motherboard. The CMOS battery should be around there.

The error you are receiving means the battery used to maintain the cmos settings is about gone and needs to be replaced. The battery is located on the motherboard and depending on your unit it looks similiar to a watch battery. If you have reservations about removing and replacing the battery then take the tower to a local repair shop and they will do it for you.

I was wondering if anyone could enlighten me on the differences between CMOS vs. VGA vs. VGA CCD. Any help would be appreciated.
 

A:CMOS vs. VGA vs. VGA CCD

Your post is highly cryptic, and therefore difficult to guess just what info you want, and what it relates to.

CMOS=Complimentary Metal Oxide Semiconductor
VGA = Video Graphics Adapter (640 x 480 resolution implied)

VGA CCD = VGA as above and Charge Coupled Device

On a wild guess you are referring to video camera devices, then CMOS are cheap, but do not have the dynamic range of CCD. CMOS cameras "smear" with high contrast images.

CCD are better quality, and more expensive.

And VGA often (but not always) implies 640 x 480 resolution or that it connects to a VGA port on a PC.

Welcome to TSG!
The AGP Master 1W/S Write Enable\Disable function is not contingent on OS or update to SP1. It is a function of the motherboard and the Bios supplied by the motherboard manufacturer. Also if you have a highly proprietary unit such as Sony or Compaq you may have problems in Bios update. You will have to research your motherboard at the manufacturers website and see what is available for settings and if the setting is not available then find out if there is a bios update for your motherboard which has the switch.

Question : Does anyone know if a "faulty" CMOS battery (the CR2032 type) can stop a laptop working?

This is the sequence of events: -

1. Booted laptop from standby as normal.
2. Logged in
3. Everything working as usual for about 30 minutes

Then I stopped working on the laptop to talk to someone. While we were talking I noticed the laptop screen suddenly went blank. From that moment forth the little darling has been as dead as the Christmas turkey.

My experience with CMOS batteries that are about to go play a harp is that they indicate this by displaying the wrong date and time. Even then it can take days or even weeks before the battery finally gives up.

I used my last CR2032 a few days ago, so before I go trundling down to the shops I would be grateful if anyone could tell me if a "deceased" CR2032 can make a laptop suddenly die.

I haven't seen that before.

Clearing the CMOS will only clear your BIOS settings like Boot order, CPU settings, stuff like that. It will not format anything, nor will it reset any passwords. Even if it is a bios password, most manufacturers make sure that it is a little harder then that to clear the password. If you have forgotten your password for windows it will not effect that but there are ways to do that.

I can't get into CMOS because I don't know the password. I heard that you can correct the problem by a temp. removal of the battery and clearing the CMOS.

Or is the password restriction removed?

A:CMOS Problem

Ok, calm down, that's a lot of questions.

Let's try to address getting the CMOS cleared first. By taking the battery out, it's going to clear what the computer remembers about the password, time and date, and the hard drives. (P.S. unplug the computer when you take the battery out, and ground yourself by touching something metal as not to short anything out).

The good news is that there are default settings, but what you'll be doing is going back into the CMOS after you've put the batter back in, and allowing it to refind the drives, and set the date and time, etc.

That's all my brain can handle right now.

A:cmos battery

Replacing the CMOS battery will probably reset the BIOS settings to their defaults. Unless you or someone else has changed the settings, that will be the same as what you have now.

You could use a camera (or smartphone) with the flash turned off to record the settings. Or, you could just use pencil and paper. (Dell typically provides a fairly limited selection of settings. That's not intended as criticism.)
