    The system clock is going slow nowadays on my Windows based Dell Inspiron notebook. Even after I reset the time to the original, it gradually gets slow causing inconvenience. What is the solution for this problem?

    USE THE FOLLOWING STEPS

    1. There could be problem with CMOS Battery of your computer. But as clock is running that means CMOS is running .

    2. You should first try to correct time zone and time of your computer. If it does not prolong to time you will set then refer following points

    3. Try to delete all temporary files in your computer . I also happens due to unwanted temporary files in your pc

    Command for delete temporary files

    * press windows key +r and type and Type "prefetch" and Hit enter
    * press windows key +r and type and Type "%temp%" and Hit enter

    4. Try to reinstall your windows

    5. If all these stated points does not work then you have to replace your CMOS battery It is not costly its availaible for Rs.15-20/-

    Dear friend,

    First make sure that the button cell on your motherboard that drives the clock, is not dead.
    If you are getting a time of 12 o’clock, every time you boot your PC --indicates that the button cell is dead.
    In this case you should replace it with a new one. It costs around Rs. 10-Rs. 20.


    If the button cell is OK, then you should check the time zone, on your computer. Incorrect time
    zones always change the clock of your system according to itself and you always get a wrong time.
    To set the correct time zone:
    >Right click on the right bottom corner of the task bar and choose adjust date and time.
    >Click on Change time zone.

    >Select according to your demo-graphical location. And your problem will be solved.


    Thanks!

    hi dear friend..........this is the problem because of the CMOS battery


    Every mother board has the real time internal clock...and these clocks are worked by the CMOS battery power only


    If the CMOS battery gets Damaged or expires ... then the internal clock does not work


    which results the Wrong time or showing some specific date and time every time or not updating time......and slow running.... issues will be generated


    and to fix these issue .....simply replae your CMOS battery


    there are many CMOS batteries available in the market .....then Buy NEW one


    And turn of the PC and remove old battery(CMOS) and replae the NEW ONE


    then turn on the PC and set the time and DATE


    then your problem will be resolved

    ALL THE BEST
