I have a STCK1A32WFC running Windows 10. The clock had stopped at a date from over a year ago. Bios updated within last 2 days to see if this would fix. Has helped when unit remains powered. However when disconnected from power the clock stops. This unit is stored unpowered for use with data logging equipment. I believe the internal battery is meant to keep RTC running. No "low battery" warning from BIOS during POST at start up.
Thanks for your reply.
Both clocks are affected.
The unit hasn't been powered for over 18 months and that was only when setting up. It was on WiFi and updating automatically and so I didn't notice problem.
On performing a BIOS recovery. Since your reply I have downloaded the Bios recovery file. F4 Bios recovery was not an option on the Bios menu so I reloaded using F7. A quick test shows this has not fixed the problem.
How long should the CMOS battery last?
The unit was bought over 2 years ago and so would be out of warranty.
Are there instructions available on how to change the battery?
The last response from you was:
· That the battery had more than likely gone flat
· Intel don’t provide instructions or any other details on how to change it – even what battery to source as a replacement.
· To browse the web for third party DIY instructions on how to replace the battery.
While I’ve had a quick browse, I haven’t had a project since where I’ve needed to use the Computestick and so haven’t attempted to change the battery.
I expect to in the next month or so.
I’ll update you once I’ve done so
