For the past few weeks, every time I boot up my MESH Vista PC the Set-up screen appears and informs that the date and time are in error. I reset them and work without problems, but they are in error at the next boot up.Is it the American Megatrends CMOS chip at fault or something like a failing battery?

How old is your PC. Sounds like your CMOS battery needs replacing.

Dud cmos battery on the motherboard. Most of them are cheap and easy to replace.

Thanks romanby, computer built July 2007. Thanks wiz-king, you both comfirmed my suspicion of a battery failure. I have not experienced a previous battery failure having had one coputer for over 10 years!
