I'm having trouble with my aunts computer.
Every time it is turned on it asks to set the date and time. i wrote down everything on the bios screen.

PhoenixBIOS 4.0 release 6.0

254M System RAM Passed

System BIOS shadowed
Video BIOS shadowed
Fixed Disk 0:WDC WD800EB-11DJF0
ATAPI CD-ROM: SAMSUNG DVD-ROM SD-816B
ATAPI CD-ROM: SAMSUNG CD-R/RW SW-248F
Mouse initialized
ERROR
0271: Check Date and time settings
ERROR
0251: System CMOS checksum bad - Default configuration used

Press <DEL> to setup, <F1> to resume

After i set the date and time, i save it and exit. The date/time will stay correct until the computer is turned off, then it has to be set again.

Your CMOS battery (the little round "watch" battery on the motherboard) needs to be changed.
