    Re: Clock slowing down gradually in Windows XP in Acer notebook

    If your Windows Clock is slowing down gradually in Windows Xp, then it may have certain reasons for this problem.

    1. Your CMOS battery of Notebook may be low or too old. In this case, you will have to replace this battery with the new one. Don't replace it yourself. Refer to your Acer Service Center for changing CMOS Battery.

    2. There may be error in the Settings of your Windows Time. Firstly, open Windows Date and Time Settings and then click on Time Zone. Check whether your Time Zone is correct or not. If it appropriate, then your Windows Time settings are ok.

    dear friend,

    There are several reasons behind this kind of issue.

    But the main issue is CMOS battery.

    Replace your laptop battery with any test battery.

    If you see that the clock is not getting slow then you must replace your CMOS battery as soon as possible.

    Overuse of battery may go through leakage which will seriously harm your computer.

    If you face the problem again after using the test battery then go to date & time settings in the control panel.

    Seems like that different time zones has been saved in your computer.

    Set your local time as default & click on OK.

    Then restart your computer.

    Hope these guidelines will help you a lot.

    Dear friend,
    The clocks present in our computer run continuously without any power supply.
    I guess that clock has to be replaced in your laptop.
    So, go to Acer service center and get new clock or battery fixed according to problem.

    hi my dear friend...............the Reason behind the issue is CMOS battery Expires


    IN the computer The mother board contains the real time clock

    when the CMOS battery expires ....then there is a problem in the INTERNAL real time clock

    Because the clock works .....with the CMOS battery only

    and To fix this issue .......turn of the system .....replace your CMOS with the NEW one

    then your problem will be resolved,,,,,,,,,,.....ALL THE BEST
