I changed a battery in a Dell about 8 years ago. I did it with the power cord unplugged, because I am not messing around inside a piece of gear with power connected and never lost anything as far as settings goes. It worked fine when plugged in and I was able to set the clock.

Tapp the Windows Key, then type: Date, followed by ENTER.

If you or, someone else decide to change the lythium backup battery, do not
remove the power cable, when the old lythium battery is removed, because, if
you do remove the power cable with no backup battery inserted, all the bios
settings will be lost.

You can go to the windows settings, date and time settings.
If you have automatically adjust the time then as someone said, your battery
may be going out because it shouldn't slow down.
You can get into those settings and adjust it manually, but I just leave
mine so it syncs with the internet.
I also find it is easier to cope with settings if I put Jaws in Speech on
Demand and launch Narrator.

Hi all,
Can someone please tell me how to change the time on my computer so that it
stays? It's off by at least 15 minutes which is rather annoying. I'm running
Jaws 2018 and Windows 10. Thanks Madison
