I have a PC Intel Pentium 150 Windows 95. he clock has been working accurately since early november. Suddenly the last three days the clock stops the moment the computer is turned off and on restarting shows the time the computer was turned off. That does not sound like a battery problem as I do believe the clock would revert to some default time and also I would lose my settings in BIOS. Ichecked the time in DOS on startup and it is the same so it is not a Windows problem. Can,t find any settings in BIOS that affect the clock.

muschep...

You are right in saying that this is not a battery problem.  I have seen this problem this week on a client machine (2 months old).  We had it inspected and it turned out to be a little chip on the motherboard is defective.

Now I don't know what kind of motherboard you have, but chances are that they will not be able to change the chip itself, they will instead change the Motherboard.

Have your system checked from where you got it.
Hope it helped

Don't count out a battery problem. The clock and bios settings are not kept on the same chip, but however they both rely on the battery while the computer is off...

Good Luck

Of course, a battery problem is not overruled, but in some cases is unlikely.
