Computer Date / Time And Year Change Each Time Boot Up
Oct 11, 2007
Each time I turn on my computer and as it is boots up it will delay for a time with a line that reads something like Automatic IDE Configuration and then a message that my date and time are incorrect. The date goes back to Nov. 2003. Once I correct the date, time and year things seem to perform ok.
I would like to know how to change the format of how the date and time are displayed on the Windows XP desktop (generally in bottom right of the screen next to icon tray).I have two laptops, both running XP Pro and fully patched. One of them shows the date and time as follows:
Even though I'm logged in as adminon my PC (Windows 2000), I can't change anything andhave no access to the controll panel. I need to change the date and time on my PC, it's stuck on December 2002. I also can't change or delete any wallpaper, no access. I've had this problem for a while, postet it here and didn't get help, haven't been able to solve it, yesterday my PC finally blue screened with a STOP error. I booted from CD and re-installed Windows 2000, so I could at least gain access, but I need help with these issues,
I have a 4 year old computer that runs perfectly, except when I turn it off at night and then back on the next day, I loose a few hours on the time date at bottom of screen. I ajust each time I use it but the same thing happens each time I turn it off. Could it be the clock battery or? My operating system is Windows XP Home
How do I speed up the boot up time? It seems like it takes forever for my pc to boot up. Plus how do I find out what programs are loading at start-up? I'm currently running winxp and connected by cable to the internet
I'm having this weird problem in my computer's date and time. Its adding 100 years randomly, because of that I have to set it to the right date because other applications won't work with that time and date.And when I say randomly, meaning you don't know when it will change the date and time.
I have a 9 year old desktop computer whose motherboard was replaced about 4 years ago with an AMD NF4XK8MC or NF4K8MC motherboard. It has a 64 bit 3000 processor.It is running at 1.81GHz and has 1.25 GB of RAM.The system is running on Windows XP including service pack 2. It is fitted with a 80 GB hard drive formatted to NTFS. Everything is running OK except that every time I switch on the computer and it boots up, it seems to forget the date and time. I go onto the control panel and reset the date and time and it managers to remember the date and time until I switch off the computer and reboot it. It is only a minor problem but is annoying tthat I have to keep resetting it.
Well its January 2008 and today when i turned on my computer i saw that my date and time were wrong..plus when i was starting up my computer a message said something like i need to set date and time. I tried to double click the clock at the bottom right side of the computer screen but it does not respond. The time and date window will not pop up so i can reset it. I tried the control panel clicked on dates, times, language, and regional options then i clicked change the date and time but when i click that option nothing appeared.I even click the change the format ... but i can't change the time. So that's my question.I am using AVG free edition but it is in error state and it will not allowed me to update because my computer date is not correct.
Is there a way that I can look up the time and date of the activity on my computer? I am curious about both Internet activity, such as "at 3:43am on sept. 9, 2005 the page stumbleupon.com was being visited" and/or any computer activity such as "at 8:00pm the windows media player was being utilized" or "added files at 8:05pm". I guess what I am hoping for is a time-stamp log.I have Windows XP v.2002 SP2. I am connected to the Internet using Qwest DSL 7meg bandwidth max. I have MSN Premium as part of this package. And I am using Norton anti-virus 2004.
Have a Sony multimedia pc with WinXP Pro. It does keep time or date. I suspected the battery to be the culprit, so I replaced it. It still does not keep time. ? The pc is in warranty, but I will have to ship it out at my expense to have it repaired. Could the pc have more than one battery.The one I replaced is one I was familiar with as being the memory battery. It is about the size of a quarter.
I'm new to the forum and have a small problem that is driving me crazy. Searching all over different forums and the rest of the internet has left me without an answer.I understand that the taskbar clock will go out of sync once in a while. The problem is I can't sync with the internet time autoupdate option. It gives me an error but doesn't say what's wrong.I'd like it to update without a third party program if at all possible.
After I set the time on my personal computer it holds for a few weeks then another time is in it's place? Sometimes it holds for a week, sometimes a month but always loses the correct time?I'm using Windows XP with Internet Explorer 8.
Where is all the locations that the time and date can be set in the computer. In control panel it is correct but some where in this box it is confused. I know I deleted something and it indicated that it was done months ago. Today my wife ordered something over the internet and it gave the date as Jan.
When I start my Averatec c3500 notebook (XP), the time/date setting is the same as when it was last shut down. I rarely connect this computer to the internet so I must manually reset the time/date when I first run this computer. If this requires a new CMOS battery, where is it located & how do I access it on a notebook PC?
I have a Dell PC running Windows XP that will not retain the date and time settings. Usually within a 24 hour period I have to go in and manually change the date from January 2003 to the current date and also put in the correct time. Does anyone know how to fix this problem?
My Fujitsu Siemens computer running under Windows XP resets the date to January 1st 2002 00:00:00 everytime i switch on and load windows?This started happening after i had problems with panda antvirus or should i say virus! any thoughts on how to sort this out would be greatly received
basically the date on my computer has turned into weird symbols and I don't know how to fix it. The time is actually okay, i think it's just the date or something. I tried looking in the regional/language settings and what not but i couldn't figure it out. Maybe you can. Here's a pic of the problem. Notice the date on the right side of the pic.
Why does the time and date keep changing. I have done (I think) everything right manually and thro internet time to correct this. changes to proper time then next time I log on my computer everything is wrong again.
This is a very handy method of inserting the date and time (according to the Windows calendar) into a text document. As far as I know, this only works in Notepad, not in MS Word or Wordpad.Steps to insert date and time into a Notepad .txt file:1) Click Start > Run2) Type "notepad" without the quotes3) Push F5 on your keyboardThis simple shortcut can be very useful, especially when making logs or recording any kind of time-sensetive observations.
date and time incorrect error message is displayed on bios I have not installed any program, but a pop up is displayed on "ALL PROGRAMS BUTTON", eachtime i click on start button and some programs are highlighted, no program is installing correctly.
When I click on a link or typing (it did it just then) it doesn't do anything for several seconds, up to a minute. It is slower than it once was. Could there be something running in the background? My system is a P4, 1.7 ghz with 512mb of ddr ram running XP Home with a dsl connection. I don't hink it should be that slow. Could you help me? Do I need to reformat and/or reinstall the OS? If so could you give me instructions on this procedure?
i reinstalled my os wich is xp media centre edition, just becuse i wanted to clean up my hd sinse i have done this everything is fine and dandy except wen i boot up it takes like ages it never used to do this before, this is not a startup time problem it is a boot up time problem as in wen u boot up your computer and u have xp its a black screen with the white loading bars at the bottom this is when it takes its time, its wierd cuse wen i load up vista its fine, also i dont really have anything running at startup only explorer
About a year ago a friend gave me her old Dell Dimension XPS-550.I added a second hard drive of 160Gigs, CD Burner and boosted the memory up to 640Megs.Then I formatted the hard drive that was on it.I bought a full version of XP but when I tried to install it it required Windows 98 first.So I installed my 98SE then installed XP.When it is turned on it comes up with the DELL logo, which I understand is burned into the chip, then a black screen giving the option of hitting ALT C to get to SCSI setup.I have no scsi devices.It has always taken a long time to boot but today is the first time I have put a stop watch to it 4 mins, 37 seconds.My wife's Dell takes less than a minute.I have installed all the WINDOWS UPDATES and SP2.But the very slow boot time is nothing new but has been a pain since the beginning.I run ad-aware and spybot S&D often and nothing out of the ordinary there.I have Bell South DSL and use AOL.
The comp is cobbled together from parts I managed to pick up, I installed Win2k 3 days ago and already it takes about 3 minutes just to restart the bugger I have ClamWin Free Virus scanner and did all MS updates but it doesn't help.
How long should it take to boot my computer? It seems slow to me, for a new computer (about 4 months old).Compaq Presario R3000 notebook, 256K, 80Gigs, P4 (I think), XP, using Norton Anti-Virus, wireless cable internet, sometimes using docking station sometimes not, peripherals are old HP printer/fax/copier/ scanner and occasonally wireless mouse.I'm not sure if I'm just being impatient or if I have some programs that are slowing down the booting process What is the average boot time?
XP boots in 100 seconds.... mines boots up from the time i hit the power button to were it asks me for my pass word in 30 seconds... why would his boot a minute and 10 secs slower then mine? and is 30 seconds a average, good, or bad boot up time? My xp is sp2 x64 quad core processor @ 2.3 w/ 4MB of l2 and l3 and 4 gigs of ram is that good?
Just for the heck of it I timed out how long it took for my (Windows XP) operating system to boot up. It turned out to be about 3' minutes and 8" seconds (+/-).I do have several programs that are included in my startup (antivirus, firewall, spyware protector, form filler,it could be reduced if necessary, but I consider all of them pretty essential for my usage. I have a Pentium 4, 1.8 Ghz chip with 1 Gig of RAM.
Im on a network with a domain controller using dhcp, my computer runs on windows xp. When I booting up and Im connected to the network with my lan connection it boots up in no time, but when Im not on the domain using the machine at home it takes about 5 min to boot up. Why would this be and can I do something to fix it? I should add that my laptop that I had before had the same software and settings but did not take 5 min to boot up when not on the network.
Mine is a P4-256MB RAM machine with Windows XP.While viewing some videos thro' my Combo drive, the machime got hanged up a number of times and I had to reset the system with the reset button without properly shutting down the system.Now, I find that the PC takes much time to boot up.
I am posting a computer problem of "The slowest computer of all"? It takes 5 to 6 minutes to boot and then takes on some dialog boxes when clicking 7 seconds to activate, (Show on Screen) and on others, takes 14 to 21 seconds to activate? Sometime you even see the searching flashlite on the screen when you click. The same thing happens with the right click context menu. This computer is a HP a430n running a AMD Athlon(B) XP 3200+ running at 2.20 GHz. It has 1Gig of ram, a GeForce4 MX440 (Raven) AGP 8x graphic card,Integrated AC97 audio and a Maxtor 250Gig hard drive.
