that means the little watch battery that is on your motherboard is not working, that might throw off your computers clock (the time).

Default Re: a problem?

if its just a desktop it is usually a standard button battery

whereas if its a laptop chances are it will be different

all the cmos battery does is keep the time up to date when the pc is switched off

The error message you get is just telling you this battery is not functioning properly, chances are it needs replacing
