CMOS Battery Replacement

Is your computer showing signs of date and time errors, unexpected shutdowns, or BIOS settings resetting?

Ensure your device's reliability with a CMOS Battery Replacement

The CMOS (Complementary Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor) battery, a small but vital component on your computer's motherboard, powers the CMOS chip, responsible for storing BIOS settings and maintaining the system clock. Over time, the battery can weaken, leading to issues like date and time errors or BIOS resets.

Reasons for a CMOS Battery Replacement

  • Incorrect Date and Time

  • BIOS/UEFI Configuration Errors

  • Boot Errors

  • Hardware Component Recognition Issues

  • Unstable System Behavior

  • Long Periods of Inactivity

  • Random System Errors

Key Benefits of CMOS Battery Replacement

✅ Stable BIOS Settings: Maintain consistent BIOS configurations for optimal performance.

✅ Accurate System Clock: Eliminate date and time errors caused by a failing CMOS battery.

✅ Prevent Unexpected Shutdowns: Ensure uninterrupted operation by addressing potential CMOS-related            issues.
