Check the manufacturer's website concerning replacing a possible BIOS battery! Some laptops have them as well as the power battery. If not that model then you will have to see about a possible new power battery.

Note....Laptop batteries sometimes require that a special installation proceedure be performed in order to get the laptop to accept the battery. Again you need to visit the manufacturer's website to view the instructions for doing so.

Change Is Good
