Re-check your time, date and year. Also run malwarebytes or a virus scan. It worked for me.

Double-check your date/time and make sure the year is set correctly. If you're "sure" that it is all correct, you will need to provide more information regarding the symptoms of your problem.

If all else fails, try a startup repair:

or a sytem restore:

My vista internet explorer won't work, certificate error. No updates, and won't update. How can I get vista drivers on a disk?

You may have a problem with your WINDOWS GENUINE AUTHENTICATION CERTIFICATE. That would tell Microsoft you have a copy of the OS installed instead installed from an original Microsoft Installation CD. No updates, IE doesn't function correctly, and other unfavorable results. You can try to go to Microsoft web page and check the availability of a WINDOWS GENUINE AUTHENTICATION TOOL DOWNLOAD.
First I would like you to visit: . This site is the Windows Genuine Advantage Solution Center and may provide you with recommendations for resolving your situation.

How to a fix cerficates erros using google chrome on window 7

Is this on all websites? If so:

First check you clock, make sure the time, zone and date are all up to date! (Silly I know) but in order to verify that your machine is not hostile it would expect that your PC is not 5 years in the past or the future; it's a little bit more complex than that but this is enough to get by on.

Is this in all web browsers? Chrome, IE, Firefox?

Your PC might be missing some Certificate Authoritys, the people we go to to check whether or not an application or website is secure and approved.

Make sure that your PC is secure and running all the latest patches and updates:

Navigate to this page:

and you'll want to search for "KB931125". This should install all the certificates and not flag programs/websites in the future!

Sony vaio vgn-fs775p laptop real time clock not keeping time


thank you for your query

If the time is not keeping up then it would seem that you will need to change your CMOS battery, this is a small battery found on the motherboard responsible for clocking etc

The battery is cheap to purchase, however I do highly recommned the laptop be booked into a reputable PC shop for replacement as you will need to take the whole laptop apart to get the motherboard

I hope this has been helpful

Erroe codes 8001050f and 80010514

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.

Clock will not adjust properly

Inside the PC is a small lithium cell battery that may be going bad. Or, check for updates on microsoft update to get the clock settings where they need to be. Also check in your settings that you are set to the correct time zone.
