    Windows 7 bad CMOS - Linux Ubuntu Problems?


    I never noticed this while using Ubuntu, but I got a bad CMOS. Could this infect many programs while running Linux? Especially updating programs? Reason I could never get many items to properly work?

    Good or bad CMOS will not affect the actual functionality of an operating system.
    CMOS only holds BIOS information. So once you are booted up, you could, theoretically speaking*, remove the CMOS battery and never see a difference.




    *Don;t do it, though. Static discharge and all that... Fried MOBO doesn't smell very good.
