Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Date/Time I'm having a problem with the date and time staying correct on my desktop. Everytime I adjust it, close down the computer and turn it back on the time and date go back to being wrong. Why is this doing this and can this be permanently fixed?

    I've already done that. I've also tried to fix it when turning on the computer and going to the system some other way, but that did work either. Any other ideas? Thanks.

    maybe try to input your own URL for Time Server. Google it and find one you like and enter it in the Date/Time properties page.

How to change time and date on my pc


are running a Windows computer you should place the mouse pointer over the date/time, usually at the bottom right corner of your screen. Right mouse click on the date/time and scroll down to "adjust date/time" and left mouse click on that. A window will appear allowing you to reset the date/time. You can also change the time zone to your particular time zone. Some O/S will allow you to select internet time, which automatically keeps the correct time.

How to verify that the CMOS battery needs to replace


<p>The CMOS battery is named after the Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor power. The CMOS has the current date and time functions for desktop and laptop computers. It allows the computer to automatically adjust the time, even on computers that are disconnected for long time. When a computer no longer has the date and time and forget it on every boot, the CMOS battery probably needs replacing. Some computers have messages when the battery is weak, while others just lose the current date and time after each shutdown.<br /> <p>Time & Date Errors<span> </span><br /> <p><span> </span><br /> <p>1. Turn on the computer. Look in the task bar at the bottom right. Make sure the date and time is set correctly. Double-click the time and click the up or down arrow to switch to the correct time. Click on the arrow next to month to change the month. Click "OK" when finished.<br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Turn off the computer. Wait 3 to 5 minutes and start the machine.<br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Look on the taskbar to see if time was lost and said a strange date January 1, 2000. Replace the CMOS battery, if this is the case.<br /> <p><br /> <p>CMOS Error Message<br /> <p>1. Look for error messages like "CMOS checksum error", "CMOS Read Error" or "CMOS battery failure" when you start your computer. These errors are caused in the machines shut down for several months or when the CMOS must be replaced.<br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Let the computer on for 24 hours. Restart the computer and find the error.<br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Change the CMOS as the return error.<br />

Cannot log on to certain web sitesbecause of security certificate issue


Hello, one possible solution is to verify if the date and time is correct on your computer. If the date and time are incorrect the security certificate will appear to be expired. If this is the case adjust the date and time of your system.

Thanks

My computer won't start up right


press F1, when it boots you are going to have to go down to the date and time, and click on it then you will need to put in the correct day date and time. If pressing f2 it will take you into the bios, and you can set it from there prior to booting, unless you know what you are doing, stay away from the bios, it can really screw up your computer. Good luck and Peace,Gym

My computer went back to older clock date as 1610


try starting your computer in safe mode and see if you can do anything productive there, like scanning for viruses or spyware. also check if you can do the following:
CTRL+ALT+DEL (open task manager)
goto Start>Run>Regedit (open registry editor)
goto Start>Control Panel>Display>Properties (change display settings)
right click on clock at tray and change the current time to correct settings

if you cannot do any of these activities, then your computer may probably been compromised by a virus or malware.
