Hi,

It seems you need to replace the CMOS battery. Is it a Desktop or Laptop?
Can you post the brand and model of the computer so we can search for more specific information?

Thanks for reply. System is Win 7 Ultimate, X64, OEM edition. All else works ok. System has no sensors to read the battery, but SIW system info says there is one. It can't read it either. WIll remove it and check with multimeter. oldguy81

Hi,

I don't know of any software that could give you the information about the CMOS battery using a multimeter is a very good choice. :thumbsup:

If the machine is a laptop in some of them replacing the CMOS battery could be difficult...
