  1. Today when i booted up the system i found that the time was set to 5.00 AM. I reset the time and shutdown system. When i booted up again i found that the clock was wrong again.

    Any ideas? :confused:

    Thanks sean,

    Sounds like your cmos battery needs replacing.

    Probably the easiest way would be to take a look on your mobo. Take out the cmos battery and look at it. It will say on it what type of battery it is.
