Hello,

Try this 1

Unplug the power cord --> Remove the battery from the laptop --> Then

remove CMOS battery from the laptop for 10mins and place it back properly -->

Plug the power cord and turn ON your laptop.

(1) Go to BIOS --> Load default settings --> Set the date and time --> Save the

settings and exit from the BIOS.

If the problem still exists then change the CMOS battery and follow the

instructions given in (1)

Good Luck
