Having problems with your Acer Aspire One PC Notebook ?

My hp laptop 22mths old wont keep time. very time i switch it off it wakes with time it was switched off at? is it the cmos battery? no warranty.


Answers :

It must be the cmos battery? Get the manual of your laptop and locate the battery. If it is easily accessible then swap for a new one. Contact HP if you are not sure!
Hi

Thank you for your query

From your description, indeed it does sound like the CMOS battery, however the vest way to check is next time you start the Laptop do the following

1)When loading the laptop there will be a message that says hit F12 or hit the del key etc etc to get into bios, press the appropriate key, if there is no such messgae try the keys F12, del or esc

once in Bios check the time if it is incorrect then it is the CMOS battery, if it isnt then it is windows related

However from what you are describing it does seem to be the CMOS battery

If this has been useful please leave positive feedback/vote/testimonial as this will help me greatly - Thank You again

I have an Acer 24" wide screen LCD monitor. When it sits idle for awhile it puts itself into sleep mode. Usually you would only need to touch the keyboard or mouse & the monitor would revive, a week ago though when I do that action nothing happens. Black screen. the only way to wake the monitor is to push the power off & on several times until the the monitor displays the desktop. At first it only took 3 or 4 times & it would come up, lately it is anywhere between 9 & 14 times before the monitor
