Need to reset the date and time

My system has decided that it is Jan.4th 2004 and everytime I turn it on, I need to reset the date and time. How can I cure this?


Packard Bell's Web site does not recognize the 'ALT' CO2 as a model.  Despite this, however, PB seems only to provide a 'generic user guide"which is not described the replacement of the motherboard or the battery at all.  In fact, the only thing he has to say about batteries is be careful how get rid you of them.

Your computer is a laptop or Desktop/Tower computer?

If you have a desktop/Tower computer, you can look here--> and see if you can identify the motherboard used in your computer.

However, if you have a desktop/Tower computer, the best thing to do is to unplug your computer from the network and, taking the precautions perfectly static electricity, open the box and inspect the motherboard yourself.

A newish mother on the above site,, shows the battery on the center line vertical and more to the left.  It's just below the 3 PCI slots.  If you have something like that, a Visual inspection should be enough to see how to remove it.  The type of battery will be engraved on the top of the battery.  In the photo, it looks like a model CR-2032, but there are several models of battery on this size.  Battery CR-2032 (or equivalent) is available in almost every pharmacy chain in the United States as well as online and stores like Radio Shack.

The page for an old motherboard,, indicates that the battery is a '3.0V DC Lithium soldered to the motherboard"and if that were the case, it would probably be something that you wouldn't do yourself.  However, this thread is to think that all you have to do for this particular mobo is actually finding the right type of support plug-and - battery.

If you have a laptop, things can get quite a bit more difficult.  If you can find a different model for your computer name, you may be able to find the manual here--> , but some of these manuals can not explain clearly how to get to the CMOS battery.

    Need to show daq reads per second, but only to record a reading every 10 minutes, need help

    You are also looking to taste to 1 Hz data acquisition?

    My approach would be to use the DAQ acquisition to time your loop display reading each acquisition, then use the loop counter to control the logic of your writing to file.  For 1 Hz and 10 minutes write I would use 'quotient and remainder' I / 600; If rest = 0, then write the data point.

    For the date and time, under Calendar palette use the time get in seconds food a DateTime Format to a string.

    You need to replace the battery in time clock (RTC) real of your computer.  It can also be called the CMOS or BIOS battery.

    Many computers, this battery is an inexpensive CR2032 button available in almost every pharmacy corner.  There are, however, some computers (especially laptops) that require a different (and probably more expensive) battery.

    Whatever the expense, almost all of these batteries are easy to replace.

  • Evrytime I connect me, I have to reset my date and time, why?

    Why my date and time do not be saved? Why should I reset each time my date and time?

    Hi NarendraNP.

    Here are three possibilities about why this is happening to you.
    1. The time in the BIOS is not set correctly. Therefore, every time that you start the PC the incorrect time is displayed. To correct, shut down the computer, turn it on and immediately go into the BIOS settings. Check that the date and time is defined, save and exit, then start the computer normally.
    2. The CMOS battery is dead and needs to be replaced. To fix, you have to expose the motherboard and replace the small type CR2032 on motherboard. You can find many videos on YouTube that will show you how to replace a motherboard CMOS battery.
    3. You don't have administrator rights to the computer to change the date and time, or there is a program installed on the computer that locks the system setting changes (an example of a program that does this is Faronics DeepFreeze). The only solution for this is to temporarily disable the program that is to lock the Control Panel, or ask a system administrator set the date and time for you.
    One of these explanations\fixes help it?

    As of the 31 version, why is there still no option of Thunderbird to QUICKLY insert the date and time in the message that you write?

    Literally, saw this option very well needed - and opportunity-"promise" for three years now, and even if there are only one or two formats that could be used, at least the option is there.

    It seems that only is to bind a Macro, and the tool to Thunderbird and do it this way.
