This message is usually due to a low CMOS battery in the Desktop computer. If it is a desktop it is usually a CR2032.


Laptops use all different batteries so there you need to research what battery.


I also would not expect it to make a website freeze as all it does is keep the date and time running and keep settings in the BIOS.

Hi -

I do agree with Roger above, but if this is a Dell, the problem has been reported several times, see below >

Many people have been reporting this recently on new machines.  Normally the small battery on the motherboard does not run low for several years, but because there are so many reports of this problem on new systems, it sounds like mayber Dell got a batch of bad batterys.

If this is not a Dell, please post your computer Make and Model.


Thank You
