Do you still have to enter the correct time, or is the BIOS maintaining this now you've changed the battery?
Thank you for your reply.I will confirm it tomorrow, because, previously, I used to change my BIOS regularly as the changes made in BIOS cannot be held due to the battery failure, after immediate restart or shutdown the old battery kept all the bios changes but not after several hours(say 5-6 hrs). So I will confirm tomorrow.
But as you have advised, the Motherbaord battery just holding the correct information of BIOS, so is there no option to check( say gadget or software or trick) before it gets completely damaged causing the loss of BIOS current settings?
