Pavilion notebook

by angel-54 / January 5, 2005 3:04 AM PST

I bought 2 Pavilion ze4908 notebooks for Christmas. The one notebook does not keep time. Spoke to HP in India today and took me through a few tests. I have to return the notebook to HP now. They say the battery failed. Is this normal with batteries or with HP?

Most comoputers have a Cmos battery

Many computers have a Cmos battery (even an Xbox has one of these but that is rechargeable) and when they fail you have to get a new one.

At least a bad battery is better than a failed motherboard, LCD, etc.

I got hp usa last year on the phone and this is what they suggested I check (Windows XP Home)

Go To:
control panel.
select date and time.
Select internet time.

If the box which reads "automatically synchronize with an internet time server" is checked, delete check mark from box.

This worked for my Pavilion. Hope the same for you.
