The laptop I'm working on wasn't keeping time. I checked the cmos battery
and it was almost dead. I bought a new one and it tested perfect. Why could
it be that the time still isn't being kept when I reboot. It still reverts
to 2002!

Re: *PC Won't Keep Time Dispite New Battery

I read an article about a desktop pc with the same problem.
2 solutions were muted.
The make of the battery and the battery socket.
It turned out to be the socket and after a quick fiddle around with it it
worked fine.
Hope this helps.

Ps just thought that some laptops have a special cmos battery ..
