Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook
I just had the hard drive replaced and now i adjust the time and it rus for a while then stalls. It is also causing applications such as lime wire to stall it is very frustrating as whenever i open the laptop it is at the date and time i last used it same as if i walk away for a few hours the time will stall. Is there a simple solution
It is most likely that your cmos battery is dying out. You will have to replace it. And as far as limewire and other applications are concerned, many of them will not run right if the appropriate time and date are not set correctly. You can look up your particular laptop online to see what type of cmos battery it takes and order it and replace it yourself. There are many useful sites that will tell you step by step how to replace your cmos battery. Or, you can take it to a service tech and have it replaced, but this will probably be more expensive for a laptop. Good luck.

I'm not sure what you are describing, but I think you mean that your laptop is shutting itself down (likely hibernate or stand-by mode) quickly if you are not actively using it? If so, you can adjust these settings by going to Control Panel - Power Options, and select different timing settings or even entirely disable hibernate and stand-by. Realize that if you are not plugged into the power cable this will use the battery up faster, since that's what these power saving settings are for.
If you are saying that your sysem Clock is freezing, then something else is the problem, and the laptop may have been damaged when the hard drive was replaced.
