Quick and easy PC question.
I've noticed that my PC doesn't keep very good time recently. I'm losing about a minute or two every day. Do I need to replace that little battery that I see attached to the motherboard, or is there some other quick fix?

Thanks in advance, ya Poindexters.

1. Yup, the first thing I'd try is that battery.

2. Hmmm... I doubt it's the internal battery.
I had that happen on my old desktop PC, and it got worse and worse. Turned out to be spyware. Do a good sweep for ads and spyware, and reboot.

4. I did a sweep two days ago. No problems there.
My computer is about four years old, and I leave it on all the time.

3. Yes, but.
You'll need to reset your BIOS after you replace it... not a problem if you didn't make any adjustments... if you did, write them down.

This'll help:
