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.

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.
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.
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," 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. "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. 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. 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
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.
