    I had a cmos battery going bad, read a volt lower, 2.3vdc, and it could not keep time.
    But this problem I think only shows up if PC is off?
    Replaced and now pc keeps the right time.

    Had the same problem. Replaced CMOS battery but that didn't work. This did - take the CMOS battery out for at least 10 minutes to drain the motherboard of memory, replace the battery and reboot. This solved the problem for me. Hope this helps.

    This issue is on a LINX10103G tablet. I can't see any easy way of getting the screen / back off to get to the CMOS battery (if it even has one?!).

    If it was desktop PC that would have been one of the routes i'd have gone down. Nothing seems to fix the time on these tablets though...

    To differentiate software from hardware problems please boot using a bootable Ubuntu/Linux drive.
    Monitor the time using Time.is - exact time, any time zone
    time.is website always displays the difference between the computer's time and the real time in your location.
    If the time is accurate you will see: Your time is exact!
    Monitor the computer for as long as you can using Ubuntu and reboot using Ubuntu.
    Report into the thread the findings.

    Is this guide for or similar to your unit?

    If so, There isn't any indication of a CMOS battery in the technical information section.

    Post #29 "LINX themselves suggested I looked into the BIOS however when I asked where to look in there they came back with I don't know"
    --- What BIOS is in your system?
    --- I don't know if it's possible to look up a BIOS technical details etc. but it might help if it's possible.

    Yes, that's the manual that comes with the device but it doesn't really have a lot of information as you can see!

    Those are the options when you hold volume up & power on startup.

    Boy you've got that right. I also tried to find a maintenance manual also but no luck.
    Is it possible to go to the manufacturers website and see if they have the ability to identify your device and provide a diagnostic capability?

    The website for LINX is: Linx Tablets but that isn't helpful either.

    They are the ones I contacted to see if they could help but was told:

    "Our engineer has suggested the following:

    Make sure date/time is correct in BIOS and not Windows. If Windows is unable to contact the online time server then it will revert to the BIOS date/time which might explain why it goes out of sync."

    I replied with where can I check this, to get back: "Sorry I don't, no. Press and hold the windows icon gets the command prompt options but that all I know I'm afraid."

    Well here's a thought out of the box: disable Fast Boot.
    Boot to UEFI Firmware Settings from inside Windows 10 General Tips Tutorials
    Shut down. Boot back up and ensure the LINX Tablet doesn't boot up in Fast Boot.
    Correct your time and date settings like you have been and verify the time and date settings hold while you use the LINX Tablet.
    Shut down, start back up. See if the time holds.

    The reason I mention that idea is because googling computer issues has included that in some cases even though there wasn't a technical reason to do so. Some attempts were mentioned to do what I just mentioned, some attempts used restart instead.
    As usual some attempts were not successful, but some were.

    It's unfortunate it isn't possible to check the time settings in the BIOS, it's even more unfortunate LINX doesn't have a clue.
    Is it possible to let us know what BIOS you have if the above isn't successful? ?
