Can't reset time and date/computer freezes

My computer's date is March 14, 2006 and the time is 12+ hours off. Everytime I try to do something, I get a message that says the computer doesn't have the ability to do that due to the date. When I try to change the date, it freezes completely. HELP! I called Acer's tech support and they told me I'd have to pay $30 for a disc in order to reinstall the operating system (Vista, ugh). I have an Aspire 5610-2328 laptop.

Why does my Dell Dimension E310 w/XP Home Media. Locks up shortly after booting?

It's a memory faulty -- not a hard drive error. Move the DIMM to the other socket (or swap it with the other one if there are two). Re-test. If the error follows the DIMM, the module is bad - replace it with a new one. If the memory occurs with the other module in DIMMA, it's the socket that's bad and you'll need to replace the system board.

Everytime my notebook gets started up it freezes about 45 seconds later

It seems alot of people have had similar issues with these PC's.
Sounds like it could be a virus or registry error. But could also be a hardware error. Does the machine run hot? If so, try cleaning the vents and running it on a hard, flat surface. If that doesn't work I would try running an anti virus and/or anti malware program (in safe mode if that's on option) If that doesn't find anything, then you could try reinstalling the O/S.
Is there a recovery partition on the hard drive?
If none of the above works, then it is probably a hardware issue, hard drive or RAM error, something like that.

Toshiba L655 has been freezing up since downloading new updates from windows. How can I reset the computer to a previous date before the downloads? I have restarted, and removed the battery.

Hello tammy_goss, the best thing to do to "Undo the Update;" is to do a "System Restore."
Follow these instructions carefully, and you will have no problem at all. The first thing you want to do is click on the "Start Button,paul7of9_50.jpg" from the Desktop. Next, click on "All Programs," scroll to find "Accessories," next select the "System Tools."
You will see in the next window that open, System Restore. paul7of9_51.jpg"Now this is very important!"
Once you click on the [System Restore] "shortcut" it will start to look for the last known time of a change in your computer, example: New Updates.
The System restore can take as long as a 1/2 an hour to run, so be patient if you want it to work. "Do not try to do any type of work, don't even touch the keyboard for any reason, just let it run!"
Once the System Restore finds the correct "Date and Time"of the event; choose the Date closest to the time of the occurrence.paul7of9_53.jpg Now once again, there will be a message telling you not to do anything with the computer, and please don't.
The System Restore will "run" for a while, so once again be patient. paul7of9_52.jpg
The computer will then "Shutdown and Restart," Lo-gin if you have to; but!
Do not touch the Keyboard once the Desktop window open, because System Restore is
still running.
Wait! Until there is a message letting you know the Restore of your System was successful!
Take your time.
'I hope all goes well, please let me know by giving a "Helpful Rating." Thanks for using Fix'Ya, paul7of9

My computer, a Dell Inspiron 1525, keeps freezing. Everytime I turn it on, it'll freeze at least once before I'm able to use it.

Try to 'recover' or 'restore' to an earlier time. Look under help in the start menu in order to find links to make this happen on your laptop.

Or, try to get Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit, and install it through the DVD drive, if so equipped to overwrite the old operating system that is giving you trouble.

One may also try to download the Windows 7 operating system, if a DVD drive is not available, but an Internet connection is.

Good luck on this repair.

My time & date stops. Have to reset them everytime.

Computers use a button type battery to keep the internal clock running when powered off. It's time to open it up and replace the button battery ;-)

Not sure if the rtc error is the cause of my problem. Laptop will not boot up after it has been shut down for a few hours. It will turn on and get past the acer screen then simply sits there and does...

You are right on your first assumption...the RTC battery is dead and keeps resetting the cmos control settings. The operating system however is updated to the present and that is where things don't want to play nice together. Change the battery, boot the laptop in safe mode with networking, adjust the date and time. When the laptop loads and is stable, then try to reboot normally into windows.

Below is the link to the service manual for that laptop, you can either click on or copy and paste into the browser address bar. It is free to use, copy and print.

Date and time never save if I restart the computer.

Yes, the small battery on the motherboard is dead. Turn it over and start unscrewing all the screws, you'll find it.

Computer freezes when i plug in usb

If this has all happened recently, go into system restore and restore to a date prior to the problems starting. That will reset all registry values back to that date. Often a quick fix.

If it helps, can you rate answer so that other people know if it's worth trying or not
