How can I check my system ' clock

Separated from this thread.

How can I check my system ' clock.    and my CMOS BATTERY?   Help!

First question: laptop or desktop?

Desktop computer.  Very easy.  Go down to the store and buy a 2032 button battery.  I buy them in the stores to a dollar when they.  Turn off your computer completely. Remove the power cord.  Hold the button for 7 seconds.  Open the case.  You will see the button battery.  Use some kind of very small eyeglasses screwdriver to remove the battery.  Push the new.

Restart your computer and press F2 to access the CMOS and set your clock.  The computer may take longer to start because he will have lost all of its original settings and will have to restore them.

These batteries last about 5 years and then start to fail.   The symptoms are difficult to diagnose.  I have change in my desktops at least every five years.  When I change, I use a felt fine to mark the month and day on it.

Laptop: not so easy.  It depends on where it is in your computer and how it is difficult to make.  Some of them are under the cover that you lift to access the hard drive or memory.  Others require the partial dismantling of the PC.  Most of them is the same 2032 batteries, but is locked in a plastic cover with the cold of wire soldered to the battery.  The sons have a plug on the end that must hold the plug on your computer. These you can find on Amazon or the OEM.  They won't be cheap.

Check the clock:  Click once on the clock/calendar at the bottom right. Click on change.  Click the Internet tab.  Click on change settings.  You will find the app that will automatically synchronize your system clock every week.  I use the option of time - b.nist.gov.  Who uses the clock Atomic US Government time labs.

    operating system 64-bit to 32-bit operating system, it's because the processor went from 32 bit to 64 bit?

    I know that 64-bit is faster and more efficient than the 32-bit processor, but why os 32/64 bit too? OS working elbow-to-elbow with processors?

  • How can I check if my computer is ok? I got an unsolicited phone call and allowed them to access my computer

    This morning, I got a phone call from an Asian man, saying: he has worked with microsoft, I found it very difficult to understand what he was saying and to rehearse a lot, he mentioned "Alureon" and says that my computer is one of the computers on crash today... He then wen on say that they should do support remotely. to help solve the problem, stupidly and against everything I've known I have allowed him... .it all seemed very alarming... it said my computer was about to crash in a few moments and I had to buy the red shield to protect... I hung up, but they called back... ultimately I told them I wasn't buying any and at this point, he got quite angry and asked me why I was wasting his time. How can I check my computer to make sure they did not hurt? and they can access my computer later? I'm asuming that Microsft had nothing to do with it.

    Hello

    It's a scam.

    If you gave them remote access and you do Internet banking, contact your bank, explain, and change passwords.

    If you use your online credit card, cancel and get a new one issued to you.

    And the only way that willl you know that you are free to them is to backup your data and do a clean install of your operating system.

    Either these so-called "Microsoft" Tech companies want to sell you a worthless software, or remote access to your computer to try to steal your credit card and bank information and also achieve an identity theft on you.

    Microsoft does not contact you unless YOU have made prior arrangements with them to do.

    There is an article in the link I'm you provide at the end of this one

    Read this Information from Microsoft:

    "Avoid scams to phone for tech support.

    http://www.Microsoft.com/security/online-privacy/avoid-phone-scams.aspx

    Don't be fooled of unsolicited calls. Don't provide personal information.

    Here are some of the organizations that cyber criminals claim to come:

    • Helpdesk Windows

    • Windows repair center

    • Microsoft technical support

    Vista and Windows 7 updated drivers love then here's how update the most important.

    This is my generic how updates of appropriate driver:

    This utility, it is easy see which versions are loaded:

    -Free - DriverView utility displays the list of all device drivers currently loaded on your system.
    For each driver in the list, additional useful information is displayed: load address of the driver,
    Description, version, product name, company that created the driver and more.
    http://www.NirSoft.NET/utils/DriverView.html

    For drivers, visit manufacturer of emergency system and of the manufacturer of the device that are the most common.
    Control Panel - device - Graphics Manager - note the brand and complete model
    your video card - double - tab of the driver - write version information. Now, click on update
    Driver (this can do nothing as MS is far behind the certification of drivers) - then right-click.
    Uninstall - REBOOT it will refresh the driver stack.

    Repeat this for network - card (NIC), Wifi network, sound, mouse, and keyboard if 3rd party
    with their own software and drivers and all other main drivers that you have.

    Now in the system manufacturer (Dell, HP, Toshiba as examples) site (in a restaurant), peripheral
    Site of the manufacturer (Realtek, Intel, Nvidia, ATI, for example) and get their latest versions. (Look for
    BIOS, Chipset and software updates on the site of the manufacturer of the system here.)

    Download - SAVE - go to where you put them - right click - RUN AD ADMIN - REBOOT after
    each installation.

    Always check in the Device Manager - drivers tab to be sure the version you actually install
    presents itself. This is because some restore drivers before the most recent is installed (sound card drivers
    in particular that) so to install a driver - reboot - check that it is installed and repeat as
    necessary.

    Repeat to the manufacturers - BTW in the DO NOT RUN THEIR SCANNER device - check
    manually by model.

    Look at the sites of the manufacturer for drivers - and the manufacturer of the device manually.

    How to install a device driver in Vista Device Manager
    http://www.Vistax64.com/tutorials/193584-Device-Manager-install-driver.html

    If you update the drivers manually, then it's a good idea to disable the facilities of driver under Windows
    Updates, that leaves about Windows updates but it will not install the drivers that will be generally
    older and cause problems. If updates offers a new driver and then HIDE it (right click on it), then
    get new manually if you wish.

    ===========================================

    Refer to these discussions because many more excellent advice however don't forget to check your antivirus
    programs, the main drivers and BIOS update and also solve the problems with the cleanboot method
    first.

  • How can I check my backup burned restore disc filled properly or does not?

    How can I check my backup burned restore disc filled properly or does not? He ran for 12 hours. My info is about 117 GB. He did not say, he just says no longer copy of backup disk in the process. I think 12 hours is a long time without a full review. When my hard drive failed after six months, my copy, I did not restore anything. More many times I tried to make a record to get an error just before the end. I want to be on the safe side. I don't have an installation disc since I bought this laptop pre-programmed Walmart.
