Not recording time

Hey gang,

For the past few days my laptop has stopped counting time and it will either slow down or stop on a fixed time until the computer is rebooted. I manually have reset the time and date on Windows and the problem persists. Also the laptop fails to recognise there is a charger inserted. The only way to remedy this is to hard shut down the computer, take the battery and reboot. I have a feeling this all points towards the CMOS battery which in time will fail to recognise the hard drive such as other things.

Any ideas on how I could fix this?

  1. If the laptop is running and on wall power, it should not cause issues with time, unless you have BIOS issue, which is more than just a bad battery.

    Cheapest thing to try is a new battery. Get one, replace it.

    You should also check if there is a BIOS update for your model and run that.
