You can't. Computers don't come with atomic clocks so they can be inaccurate. I.e. it is the clock crystal and perhaps not the battery.

You really can't. To insure accurate time keeping NTP is your best bet.

Re: Clock Rate on RP2470

There are 2 batteries in this system, one on the system board, one on the GSP. If you loose settings/time completely, consider to replace them. I assume warnings related to this in GSP logs.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Do you know what s the P/N of the battery on the system board? We must ordered from HP or we can buy it Locally as the battery of PCs?

Re: Clock Rate on RP2470

You can check it again, but IIRC this battery is a standard model, also used in various PCs.

Hope this helps!
