Dear friends. Please help. The computer time in my machine periodically goes back to January 1, 2003. I don't know why? Sometimes, after 4 or 5 or 3 days, it goes back to that time or it resets time on a past date/time. Is this symptomatic of something? How can I correct the situation. I am able to correct it though, but the problem recurs after several days. abchua7
thanks rik from rce and barryt. Time to visit local computer shop here really now. I shall keep you posted on the development. Give me about a month (or less, if my sched permits) to accomplish this. Many thanks. Perhaps only then can we mark this as solved? abchua7
Finally got the chance to drop by computer shop, and got the much needed battery change. Rik from rce had mentioned a bios battery change in her rejoinder to your first reply, but the shop technicians insisted what i need to replace is the cmos battery. I just had to say ok. Change the cmos battery. In your reply you just mentioned battery change.
If in seven days the date and time does not revert back to 2003, then we'll mark this thread solved and closed.
Am really hoping that would be the case, as I have three more issues. One of them is currently displayed in the storage forum. You just might want to have a look there. It is about a free agent external hard drive that had hidden my files.
Would be most grateful and appreciative, as I am allready now.
Yes dear friends, the shop technician did set the time for me. He was there to check up on the computer, and did what he had to do, I suppose. He asked me though what exact time I have, and informed me that he will set the time for the new cmos time, if one might call it that. When I reached home though, I synched the time to the international internet time, and there was just a small difference. Perhaps what our three friends (the last three threads) are saying is for all intents and purphoses, this thread is solved? I don't have to wait for 7 days to verify that the malady's been addressed. The credit should go to barryt, and I thank him.
