Date Changes on XPS One Every Day

Date/time changes every day. I shut down every night. Once it went back to 1/2009. I can detect no pattern. I have reset the time and the internet choices to the ones suggested by this forum and I appreciate the info. If the CMOS battery is going/gone, can I change it and if so, how? If I change the battery, what will the computer lose?

Many thanks!

RE: Date Changes on XPS One Every Day

Read page 41 in the manual.

If the date isn't holding, BIOS has probably been reset to its default settings, but nothing else will be affected by changing the battery.
