hi, there is a small silver[bios ] battery on the motherboard about the size of your thumb nail ,it needs replacing


@caperjack, Thank you for the reply,...what do you mean?...you mean to buy another bios battery and replace it.


If you tried installating a new CMOS battery and this issue still persits, try updating your BIOS. You can search your BIOS in google and download the update file and flash it.
