Year change automatic

  1. Hello,
    Just thought that I would try here for some help. I have been having problems with my computer changing the year to 2406 just by itself. Of course when that happens I have all kind of other problems also. Can anyone tell me what is causing this? I have scanned my computer and found no virus.
    Thanks,
    Brian

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Try changing your cmos battery. That may cure the problem.

    Thanks so much. That is the battery on the mother board? Right?

    Yes that`s right.

    A dead or failing mobo battery can cause all kinds of weird problems and could well account for the date problems you`re having.

    Regards Howard :)

    Thanks that fixed my problem. I would have never thought of that one. Hope this will help anyone else in the future.
