I have a desktop that my brother built so I don't know the specifics.I just upgraded from windows XP to Windows 7 Home Premium.

When you restart the computer you have to reset the time and date? It did this when it was running XP also? What causes this and how can I fix it? Thank you.

Most common reason is the BIOS battery on the motherboard is dying. Cheap replacement. Most likely the battery is a CR2032. About the size of a U.S. quarter.


I never make the same mistake twice....I always make it 5 or 6 times just to be sure!

After replacing the CMOS battery...be sure to enter the BIOS settings and reset the date/time data...and elect all default settings...and save the changes by hitting F10.

Thank you! That was the problem, it restarts and keeps the correct time.
