Having problems with your Sony VAIO Notebook ?

Laptop will not keep current date/time

\015 Since spilling about a tablespoon of water on my keyboard my date/time will not keep current. It is a SONY VAIO that is several years old. After letting the machine dry out, everything works great except the date/time. I reset it and while surfing it will keep time. After letting it go to sleep and then turning it back on, it won't be right. The next day the date will be behind at least one day. Is there a setting that I need to reset or adjust on it? \015

Answers :

The BIOS battery is nearly flat and this is causing the time to drift.
\015\012Replace the BIOS battery with a new one, then you will need go into the BIOS configuration to set the date and time.
