Question about IBM ThinkPad i1200 1161 Notebook
Everytime i turn my laptop on & off it resets the time & date to january 1, 2000. Why is it doing this and how do I fix it?
You have a small battery inside the laptop on the motherboard (Looks like a watch battery) that has expired. If you replace this battery your problem will disappear.
Your bigger problem is getting to this battery. Usually you can "lift up" the keyboard and get to items like the memory, etc. Check around these areas and see if you can find and replace this battery. Should solve your problem.
