Asus S-presso loses time?

  I. T. Mastermind 18:01 17 Nov 2006


My Asus s-presso keeps losing track of time every time the system is shut down or reset, I've replaced the motherboard battery to no avail, and its really annoying me. Can anybody please advise me on how to fix this problem, i've updated the bios to 1007 revision to no avail. Any help would be much appreciated.

Does anybody have any ideas? Any help would be great

The lack of response is probably due to the fact that you have already done what would most likely have been the first suggestion i.e. replace the battery.

yeah, i guess your right, but in the bios the clock is frozen, i.e. the time doesn't go forward apart from in windows, is this a bios release issue?

i'll try an older bios and see if that works.

I presume you have tried resetting the time, date etc in the Bios and then Saving and Exiting?

Using an earlier version of the Bios is unlikely to make any difference and just might cause other problems elsewhere.

the older bios didn't make a difference, i've tried re-setting the time and that hasn't made any difference either. Is this a hardware problem do you think?

It could be that the bios chip is damaged in some way. Did you flash the bios to try and cure this problem or is the problem prevalent after the bios flash.

Only way you could check is to replace the bios chip, but for the price of that you may as well change the motherboard.

the fault appeared before the bios was flashed, also can you buy replacement motherboards for the asus s-presso?

I've contacted Asus about the problem but I am still waiting on a reply.

" also can you buy replacement motherboards for the asus s-presso"

The motherboard is a Asus P4P8T, if you can find one. Asus may sell you one.
