Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook
I have a Canadian version of the Acer Aspire and since new it has never been able to hold the correct date and time. no matter how many times we reset it, it just loses days. we have tried syncing it with the internet but this does not work either. Also, its 8 weeks old and now the fan is starting to make a noise.
Its running Windows XP.
Click the icon then remove check from lock taskbar
then click to adjust time and date then set your timezone
then in internet time check automatically syncronize then
time.windows.com then update and then apply
then click icon again and check beside lock taskbar
if this does not hold your time then redo remember to unlock taskbar first this time in internet time click server and change to time.nist.gov
then update and apply
if problem persists change back internet time to time.windows.com let me know if problem fixed please don't forget to rate me

Sounds like the small penny size battery that connects to the motherboard may be faulty which is why it may not be keeping the date and time. Try going into the BIOS of the laptop and set the time there and save the settings to see if that solves that. If it doesn't then its the small battery.
If the fan is starting to make noises, make sure there is no debris in the fan.
That is the fan that goes on top of the CPU. If there is no debris in there then the fan is faulty.
