netbook has a minor fault


needs the F2 key pressing to continue start up and looses it's time and date every restart


I know its probably the Cmos battery (think watch battery) or possibly not


worth taking it to staples?


or get a pc techie buddy to pop it open and stick a new watch battery in

I wouldn't ask anyone to open it up just yet, as that could possibly void any warranty you may still have on it (depending if it has tamper markings). That does definitely sound like the CMOS battery has failed (a common fault) and is a simple fix. However if you took it back to Staples, the most they would do is send it away for repair which may take weeks. Having someone else look at it would be much quicker and shouldn't cost too much, but may jeopardise your position should the netbook suffer a more serious fault in future.
