    Problems When I turn on my PC


    Hello. Whenever I turn on my PC, there is only a black screen with the mouse cursor. When I restart my PC it works but the date is set to some very random date eg. 1/3/2302. This really confuses me and I have no idea why this is happening.

    How old is the PC?

    Sometimes the motherboard battery (coin-cell) goes bad, and causes such problems. You can buy an inexpensive one online, but before you do, you might want to test it. If you have another motherboard lying around, switch them out.

    Hey! It's only about a year old and I built it myself. I wouldn't have any other motherboards unfortunately. Thanks for the reply

    Most motherboards use lithium button cells, type 2032. In the US, they're readily available. The corner pharmacy (chemist) probably has them. I have received musical greeting cards that were powered by them.

    I doubt that's your problem, although it's not impossible. I hope that it's nothing absurd like the clear CMOS jumper being in the wrong position.

    I see. I hope it is something simple. Thanks

    I don't know about the date, but I had a similar problem recently with one of my computers. I believe DRIVERS were the cause. Go now to your motherboard/computer manufacturer's website (Asrock, according to your system specs list), and download all the latest Windows 10 drivers (either 32 or 64 bit depending on your system), then install them as needed in order to update to the latest drivers available to you.

    You built it a year ago, but did you use brand new parts?

    In addition, if you do not leave your PC plugged in, it would be constantly draining the CMOS battery. A year is still too soon though, that's why I question whether you used an existing motherboard.

    No I bought brand new parts, all off amazon, and I always have my PC plugged in
