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.

My Computer Forgets Date And Time

Sep 28, 2009

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.

Finding Way To Look Up Activity Time And Date Running On Computer?

Sep 14, 2005

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 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.

Pc Keep Time Or Date

Mar 12, 2006

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.

Computer Always Take A Long Time To Boot

Apr 23, 2005

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.
