rdave ty ive tried that the system crashes?? ive just found out the BIOS is well out of date and this may have something to do with it, The time on the laptop is way out and when i fixed it the damn thing came up with a totaly differant time.? Ive never used a IBM pc before do you know where i can get the updated BIOS from pls?
Doubt the bios is out of date though might be 5 years old. It's the bios battery that is dead. As it's a laptop I have no idea how to change it on your laptop although if the main battery can hold some charge then the bios time should hold ok.
It's not the BIOS that's at Fault, You need a New Cmos Battery Fitting for it to keep time when running on Battery. Other than that it should keep time if its running on Mains after you adjust the time
It does if its charged but not if its on its last legs that,s why its losing time. that's benefit of a Desktop in that leaving the plug in on the desktop lets power get to the Motherboard CMOS clock. On Old AT systems the Power Button actually cut the main power but not on new ATX systems on ATX the Mains Power stops inside the PSU on AT it went direct to Computer Switch on the front. CMOS battery fills in to keep time when there is not Mains power, this is to keep CMOS settings, that's one of the reasons that the Button Battery should not be allowed to go flat as it loses all the settings for ram speed and CPU speed you name it they are all in the BIOS software program.
On a Laptop you would need to leave the Mains adapter connected, Not a good idea as they run hot and no ventilation
