HI I am experiencing a problem with the system clock. Basically the laptop in question, an asus, had its battery removed a while ago. A few months ago, I noticed something was wrong with the clock. Everytime I unplug the adapter - when the laptop is off - the system clock default to 00:00 and the date to 2009. This seems to have implications with negotiating the connection and browsing websites (I get a certificate error quite often). ANyway, I can easily reset the clock in the bios and it works fine, untill, again, I disconect the adapter. On booting, there is a message coming up, something about a file missing.
What do you guys reckon this is due to? Not entirely sure how to fix it. It looks like when the power source is cut off the clock goes crazy, so I am thinking to put the battery backk even if it doesn't hold any charge, and try with that. Failing that, what dco you reckon I should do?
