Time And Date Freeze

Sep 11, 2007

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?


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.

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.

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.

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.

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".

Computer Freeze Every Time

Jun 8, 2005

My computer has run totaly perfect until 1 day ago, i left it on overnight to download some stuff, in the morning i turned the screen on and it was frozen, i thought that was weird, so i restarted it, about 2 minutes after it was booted i started connecting to the internet, right when i was typing in the webpage, BAM, frozen again, i was starting to get pissed. To make a long story short, it now freezes EVERY time i turn it on, sometimes its within 30 seconds and i cant even open a program, other times its 10 minutes and it freezes. I dont think its the memory because i just got the new ram about 3 months ago from Mushkin, after i returned a already friend RAM stick and they sent me a fresh one back, and like i said it worked flawlessly and i didnt touch anything, just woke up and turned it on and its all of a sudden got a mind of its own, can anyone help? thanks. I also looked in the BIOS and nothing has changed since like 6 months ago when i built it, im clueless to why it all of a sudden locks up.

Start Up Time Out - Computer Freeze

Aug 6, 2007

I have is during start up, one time out of three or so I get to the log in screen where I click my name but a second before its completly there the computer freezes up. The Icon and Name are about 10% faded in and I'm left hanging. Even if i restart my computer 50 times I get the same problem untill I hit F8 during startup and go to "Last Settings that Worked".

This is bareable untill this time, It didnt work, as usual and I went through F8 etc. When I got into windows it started to load about half my icons and locked up :S. So here I am in safe mode, just want this problem to stop. Im a Uni student in my final semester of my degree, don't have time for this.

Operating System Freeze For Some Time

Oct 6, 2006

I am having frequent freezes where a window will become non-operative for as much as two-three minutes. No reason I can think of for this to happen. It occurs in Word, Wordperfect, and in my webmail text writing. This is not a normal timed backup which, on this fast machine, only takes a heartbeat.I also get funny occassional screen flashes as if a capture is taking place.I have Spybot S&D; Spyware Blaster; webroot; AVG antivirus; Process Guard; Wormguard; and a private firewall in addition to the windows firewall. All scans show nothing of concern.

Why Does Freeze From Time To Time?

Oct 6, 2006

I just wondered, why does Windows XP freeze here and there? I would think, from what I understand of preemptive multitaking, that worse case, Windows should just slow down, but now freeze like I see it do. It is like it gets taken over by one program or stuck on one task? I am not jsut referring to this computer, I have seen this on about every Windows XP machine I have used in the past few years.

Switch User Freeze - Favorites Freeze

Jun 12, 2005

This place is quite active, and I am glad to see that. I own a Dell 4600
Demension computer, it was purchased about a year and a half ago. I recently
reinstalled Windows on it, and reinstalled the drivers/utilities that were
needed, with the help of a Dell expert. I have Windows XP Home Edition right now. I have the Lavasoft Ad-Aware SE for my spyware protection, and I have the AVG from
Grifsoft for my virus protection. I scan my computer every night, and I keep
all my databases up-to-date. Recently, my computer was infected with the
Trojan Backdoor.SdBot virus, and I looked on the Norton Antiviruses website
to get rid of it and fix the computer. So now, at this time, I believe my
computer is clean.

Date Of Last Accessed One Of My Documents

Sep 1, 2005

I wanted to see what date I had last accessed one of my documents so I right-clicked its icon, chose Properites and discovered the date "August 29, 2005." That would have been ok but I didn't remember even looking at that doc for over a year. It got really weird (for me at least) when I checked other documents' Properties and *every* one of them had the date "August 29, 2005" down as the date last accessed! No - I didn't look at everything on my machine on that day! I then experimented by clicking out/back in to Properties and saw that the correct access date (in this case, today) was now listed

Add / Remove Program Last Used Date.

Aug 5, 2005

I just noticed that the Last Used Date shown for programs in the Add/Remove list does not always agree with what I know to be the case. For instance, Bridge Baron 14 show as being last used on 3/9/2004. I just finished using it this morning so it seems like the date should be today's. The same holds true for many other programs in the list.Do I misunderstand what the Last Used date indicates?
