IBM Thinkpad looses 20min or more a day

Hello,

I have a user with a IBM T-30 (model 2366-63U) running Windows 98 that keeps loosing time. This happens after the screensaver (windows Default)initalizes. He'll come in the next morning and the time is 20min to a hour off.

* Power management has been disabled
* No Norton Software loaded
* This happens only connected to a ethernet connection.
* Happens in or out of the docking station
* Only happens when there is a mouse connected (USB)

Thanks
Chris

It sounds like the CMOS battery is getting bad.  Replace that and it should fix your problem.

I forgot the CMOS battery was first replaced, and later the motherboard. Any other suggestions?

Typically for CMOS bat., you say it only happens connected to ethernet, are you then logged on to a server, he can set your time to "network" time also...

We are going to load XP to see if  this make a difference. If not we may look into a program like Atomic Clock, even though the workstation should sync with the MDC when he logs in.
