    We have Windows Vista Ultimate. The clock time and/or date is wrong. Change it to be correct. Then after a couple weeks or so we will notice it is wrong again. Replaced battery. No change. Computer is only 6 months old.

    Vista home premium on a FZ240 Vaio laptop. Date and time resets after a couple of weeks. After correcting it, it will reset again after a couple of weeks or sometimes after a few days. The reset happens usually the very first time it’s turned on after being turned off overnight.. Bought the laptop just a month ago.

    The system time in my pc used to reset itself to december 2nd, 1998. I went through a few forums and having read that the problem could be with the CMOS battery, I have changed it. Now i have a very strange problem. My system time is still wrong.. and even if i correct it, it resets itself to the last saved time within 30 mins. Please help me with this.

    Windows XP Pro. Upon logging on to a user account as you log in the time is right. An instant later every time it resets the time to 10:01 PM, december 21, 2021. I have not changed mobo battery but i do not believe this is the problem as the time in the bios stays correct while the windows time does not.
