My beloved SL510 is on life support ...

2016-12-29, 18:17 PM



I recently ran a system diagnostic and received a warning about the RTC on the motherboard.  As my computer usually runs very well, I was surprised because I had no idea there was an issue.  I am constantly updating drivers and software, maintaining my computer is my top priority!


According to an Internet search it is referring to the system battery, BIOS, etc. 


Can someone tell me what to do about this problem?  IS it a PROBLEM?  Do I need to buy a new computer before my baby dies?


Please help...
