My clock is constantly blinking and won't go on the right time. I unplugged it and plugged it again, it just keeps blinking.


Hello
Check the bckup batteries in the clock first. If they are weak, backup function will not work properly, and the display will blink after a mains power failure.

Auto Clock Set

You do not have to set the clock time as a

built-in automatic time set system is

equipped in this clock powered by 3V (2

X AA batteries, included). All you have to

do is to plug this clock for power and

current time will be shown automatically.

However, the batteries can also be

exhausted and we recommend that you
replace the batteries every 2-3 years

Before You Plug for Power

1. Setting Time Zone

You may slide the TIME ZONE selector at

the back of the unit to Eastern (EST),

Central (CST), Mountain (MST) or Pacific

(PST) (refer to the maps on the right).

2. Daylight Saving

You can slide the DST switch at the back

of the unit to turn on/ off in areas

observing/ not observing such time

change.

WARNING: Please avoid playing with

these buttons after entering the
Clock/Alarm set mode.

Setting Clock

1. Slide the switch /WAKE1/WAKE2/

on the top of the unit to clock position.

2. Press REV or FWD to set the clock

time. The time decrements or increments

will follow by a faster rate when you press

and hold the buttons. The ":" between

hour and minute time flashes when you

are setting the time. AM or PM icon will

also beside the time.

3. Slide the switch /WAKE1/WAKE2/

on the top of the unit to position
when finished.
OK.

double click on the little speaker icon next to the clock at the bottom right corner of the screen and open the "mixer" and see if it is checked or muted, did you load the device driver for your audio device? if no, go to acer web site and get the drivers.

You need to set the correct date and time in your system BIOS. To access that you need to press the correct key when the computer is first booted (usually DEL or F10/F2/F11).
Most computers will have a message stating press xx Key to enter setup or etc.
If this problem persists even after setting the correct time in your BIOS, your laptop needs a new CMOS battery. I recommend having a professional do this.

My ps3 says error 8001050f when i log on, how can i fix it so that i can log on


Here’s what’s going on right now: something with the PS3’s internal clock has borked in some pre-slim models. This is not a PSN issue; it has to do with your PS3’s clock. This clock is NOT related to the OS clock. It seems to be a leap year bug. Setting your clock ahead will do nothing. All PS3s around the world were affected at the exact same time.
Does this affect me?
-If you have a Slim PS3, you’re good to go. Continue playing it as normal.
-If you have a “fat” PS3, you may be affected. Some fat PS3s have worked ok, but it seems a good majority have been bugged.
What does this bug mean?
-If affected, your date and time has been set to a random past date. This prevents you from signing into PSN, playing any PSN games, or using any DLC. Your trophies will also not display correctly or be able to sync.
How do I fix it?
-You can’t. Even if you don’t sign into PSN, it won’t help. This is a hardware issue.
So, what do I do?
-Wait 24 hours. Other products that have had similar bugs have corrected themselves after the “bugged” day. On Monday around 6pm central time, all PS3s will automatically correct themselves…maybe.
-If that doesn’t work, we’ll need a firmware update from Sony, which should be a pretty important priority for them right now.
Did I lose my data/themes/etc?
Your save data/games/dlc/themes are fine. They’ll be fixed when the PS3 is fixed. Trophies are uncertain right now, but they’ll be fine if you’ve synced them before the PS3 was bugged. Unsynced trophies are an unknown right now.
If I have a bugged PS3, can I still use it?
It’s probably not a good idea, as I have no idea what will happen to the trophies you earn during the bugged time. Movies/media will work fine.

did your clock stop for a period of time.
if so you may need a new CMOS battery on your motherboard.
This battery is a flat battery that is the size of a nickel. It keeps information fro being deleted when the computer is turned off. It saves the CMOS settings in windows.
But it won;t delete files
However, your computer will act up and lose info to make it run right.

How to log off


If you log off you only close your user session under windows, not turn off the computer.

If you suspend you turn off almost everything in the laptop like hardwire, cd or dvdrom and most peripherals but the computer stays on the consuming power.

If you hibernate what windows does is to store all in memory in a temporary file in the hard drive and turn off all the computer so when you turn it on again it will be as you last session with all your programs and documents you left open.

And if you turn off the computer it will close all your programs, close windows and turn off all the hardware.

Help daylight savings time is not here yet


I am going to try changing to time zone 7 (Hawaiian Time). Hawaii does not observe DST so this should turn the clock into a regular clock that ignores DST and you need to set yourself twice a year.
