    Hi,

    Please change your battery............that is what runs the CMOS RTC (Real Time Clock)
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    Yes....a little watch style battery usually found on your mother board that maintains the time on your computer even when it is off and unplugged.

    Don't be too worried about the cost either...........that battery has probably been in since day one [1998 = SEVEN years]

    I think it has WELL earned a rest
