CMOS clear quite frequent

By ramlinks_gcm ·
hi all

i have a i810 chipset motherboard which worked well for quite a long time now its giving strange problems. After shutdown it won't boot again. processor fan just starts and stops. i tried changing SMPS, RAM and stripped all hardware except motherboard-processor-RAM but nothing found out. when i cleared CMOS it started and worked as usual. but when i shutdown and restarted it gave problem. i clear CMOS again .... it worked. it requires CMOS clear after every shutdown or restart to work. on booting it worked perfectly for few hours until i shutdown. what might be the problem??? can anybody help me plz???

Check or Replace the CMOS battery

by TheChas In reply to CMOS clear quite frequent

You can get this kind of strange issue when the CMOS battery is getting weak.

What can happen is that the battery does not have enough voltage to maintain the CMOS data, but has enough voltage so that the data becomes corrupt.

Change out the battery, and all should be well.
