Time Keeps Going Back To 2006?!

So my laptops been working fine for 2 and a half years for me now, and then out of the blue two days ago, my laptop switches itself off on me and when I turn it back on, the dates been changed all the way back to Monday 6th February 2006. I have no idea why it's done this, and when I tried to connect to my internet it then said that there was "Low Wireless Signal", which was impossible because I was right next to the router. So I managed to fix the connection problem by re-installing the Wireless Connection Driver but I'm still not confident that it will stay fixed.

Can anyone think of a reason my laptop did this? Oh and for some reason, when I turned my laptop back on, every program that I had installed was highlighted in orange, as if I had just installed them. Atheros AR5007EG Wireless Network Adapter That's my adapter I use for my internet, but I don't think thats the problem. If anyone needs more info, just ask (and explain how to get it) because I'm absolutely hopeless with these things.

Time Schronization: Change Date & Time Internet Time Tab And Chose A Time Standard To Connect
I recently went into Change Date & Time Internet time tab and chose a time standard to connect with. After doing that I went onto the internet and connected with and checked the time. After that I was no longer able to go into the internet time tab. It tells me that is the time connection and I can't change it. It tells me I need to have permission to do this as administrator. I am the administrator! What goes here?

X64 Freeze From Time To Time For 2-3 Seconds.
Recently I have bought Vista Home Premium x64 and to be honest I am having quite annoying issue with this OS . I had installed Vista on RAID0 partition. Additionally I have three other sata drives for my data . I noticed that from time to time when I am working on vista , system freeze for 2-3 sec then everything is fine and I can continue work. Particulary when for example I am opening some application or even windows explorer , my computer etc. (when it hangs I can't move my mouse). Moreover when it freeze I "hear" something inside my computer case as if my computer weak up from hibernation.

Wont Time Sync Even Tho Keeps Time
Im in vista 64 bit. I was trying to install a licence for Cubase and was getting a time, calendar error. I look and everything is on time to the second hand on my wall. But for the hell of it, I tryed syncing it to all the availible servers but got: "An error occured while Windows was synchronizing with whatever.server" However I can ping the servers in comand prompt. And also, like the topic says, It still keeps perfect time. It set it's own time. So Im clueless. A bios thing perhaps?

Laptop Display: Boot Into Aero About 50% Of The Time. The Rest Of The Time I Forced Onto The Standard Theme With No Aero Option
I've got an Sony VGN-BX197XP laptop that I've upgraded to Windows Vista Ultimate. Since then I've encountered some strange display-related issues:

1) I could only boot into Aero about 50% of the time. The rest of the time I forced onto the Standard theme with no Aero option. Since installing Vista SP1 I can't get Aero at all.

2) When not running in Aero mode I can't get the Windows Media Player to play video files, nor get a Perfomance Index.

3) If I plug in an external monitor I can't get a picture on the laptop monitor but I *do* get a picture on the external monitor and it runs Aero 100% of the time. It will also play video files and give me a performance index.

Time To Delete
I have previously posted regarding the large volume of bits and pieces that
are under my (user) folder on the drive. 89,000 plus. All of this came about
by trying to restore from a backup created from a Windows Vista Ultimate
computer. My new one, at present is Windows Vista Home Premium.

I finally figured how to sort the files by file type (not set up that way as
in XP). When I set about to delete a thousand or so, it never seems to

Is there a way to speed this operation up? I have now spent 5 hours at it.

Slow Boot Up Time
I used to be able to boot up in no time. The microsoft vista "lightbar" used to scroll left to right about 5 times. Now, it scrolls 43 times.

I did the Visual basic test that I found here and my boot up time is 155 seconds. I do know part of my problem is my antivirus but looking around I found more problems.I have major bootup errors in the event log.

My Disk Is Getting Corrupt All The Time
Something has been bothering me a lot in Vista 64 Ultimate SP1. Every now and then, when Windows starts, it says my disk structure is corrupt and I should run chkdsk in order to fix it. When I try to run CHKDSK under Vista, I get a "insufficient disk space to fix master table (MFT)", and CHKDSK aborts. I can't create folders, files, Windows Update fails ...

The good thing is a have a dual boot system and when I choose XP, Windows XP detects that the Vista partition needs chkdsk and this time, chkdsk runs completely and fixes the Vista partition. So I can restart the computer, choose Vista partition again and this time everything will work fine.

Problem is, this is happening too often. Like every day. And it is such a hassle to start Vista, get the error message, restart, choose XP, fix Vista, restart, choose Vista and then have everything normal. Any of you guys have an idea on WHY my disk structure is getting corrupt all the time? My Vista installation is very recent, and I did a full format in the partition before installing it.

IE7 Just Hangs After Some Time
I just purchased a Toshiba A205-7464 laptop before Christmas and have been having a problem lately with the wireless internet hanging on me.

I will be online for a certain period of time, sometimes hours, sometimes 10 minutes. I will try to go to a website, not always the same one, and IE will just hang, no graphics will come up, the green bar just stops halfway through and it just hangs. I get no error page or anything but in order to get it working again, I have to reboot. It is really starting to tick me off because it is starting to happen more frequently. I have uninstalled McAfee and installed my own Security Software (CA Suite).

Here are some stats on my PC:...

Connect To 2 Networks At The Same Time?
I'm wondering if it's possible to set up my computer (it has two ethernet connectors) to connect to 2 different networks at the same time? (this would be both "wired" networks, but if wireless is easier I have wireless USB adapters I can utilize as both of my network routers are wired & wireless).

Limit Amount Of Time On PC?
Is there a way to limit how much time a user can be using the computer each day? I've got the parental controls set up to limit when, but I'd also like to limit how much of that time they can use. If not, are there any free, simple programs out there? Everything I find is much more than I need - controlling what the user does, managing the time the users can use the PC, etc.

Date And Time Changes After Restarting.
I'm having a problem with Vista 64, I've verified the date and time in the bios (new motherboard) what happens is the date and time change to Dec 2016 after the PC restarts and the desktop is ready for action. I've scanned for viruses and malware and none were found, this is a new install from scratch.

Also I have a "Interactive Services Detection" error that forced me to disable the service, does anybody know how to fix it instead of disabling the service? I could just do another re-install but I'd like to avoid that right now.

How To Speed Up Boot Time?
I have a Lenovo T400 - T9400 (2.53 GHz C2D) - 4GB DDR3-1066 - Vista Business x64

How can I speed up my Vista boot time? Currently it takes between 75-85 seconds to boot into a usable state.
Once in Vista, my laptop is very fast, and I have no complaints.
I did a clean install of Vista.
I've already disabled many services and startup programs.
I did a bunch of little tweaks I found on different sites as well like disabling indexing, tmm, system restore.

The main thing that seems to be slowing the boot process is between the BIOS and login prompt.
There is a period of at least 15-20 seconds where the screen is black or barely doing anything before it jumps to login.

I tried going into the BIOS and making sure things are in order. I put the HD as the first boot device instead of CD (probably didn't save much time).

Is there something I can do to speed that time up?

60% CPU Usage All The Time
I've just had my computer for a few days and I've noticed that the CPU usage meter is at 60% all the time now (even when it's sitting idle).. where it was usually less than 10%. The realiabilty and performance monitor shows that something alled "LOCAL MANAGEABILITY SERVICE" "LMS.exe" is continually using 50% of the CPU. What is this manageability service and why is it consuming 50% of my CPU power?

Estimated Time Remaining
Several MS progs and processes show an 'Estimated Time Remaining" box. It seems to me to be hopelessly inaccurate. The time estimate jumps up & down, and only becomes meaningful over the last few seconds. Am I doing something wrong or is this a fundamental law of computers?
