please why: Computer date always resets to October 28,2003. If I were to set the date to the current date at BIOS, at bootup, shutdown and reboot in like 5minutes, the date goes back to October 28,2003.


please why does this happen. Is this a sign of a weak Bios Battery? or

Well, it could be either a voltage problem that is resetting the time constantly or the RTC itself (BIOS chip). I am not sure how to fix it if those are the problems. My guess would be to get a new mobo.

I also have a time problem. Every time when I set my clock on my computer, the next day, it's one hour behind. How can I fix that?

Check the battery on your motherboard. Its a little watch battery, like $0.85 at cvs.

also check this~~
1>disable any option about "daylight saving time"
2>check for virus that may change you date and time (so that your AV software will shut down itself)
3>disable any option about "synchro local time with a time server" or so...

give it a shot~ and good luck

Just replace the CMOS battery like GT500Shlby said, that should definitely fix any time problems...if its just reseting itself. And if that fails, Check Here

And I doubt if the computer is failing because the Y2K glitch. So its probably one of the first three on the article, in the above post.

one solution to those resetting system date is to keep the PC running round the clock. or avoid shutting down. get the PC to Standby Mode instead... do these techniques if you were tad too bothered changing your CMOS battery.

By the may, PCmag.com recommended changing your CMOS battery before it ticks more than two years.
