I'm working on an older Compaq nc6320 laptop and I can't get it to keep the correct time. I've installed WinXP Pro SP3 on it. Anyone know a solution? Thanks.

The most likely cause is a dead or dying RTC (Real Time Clock) battery, which in this system (and most others) is a standard CR2032 lithium coin cell. Scott.

Is this the same battery that's used in desktops? Looks like dime.

Yes, you will also find CR2032's in many things other than PC's often used in car remote locking and alarm key fobs

Yes, most desktops also use this type of battery. It is sized more like a quarter than a dime. Scott.
