Wrong date and time on XP
Posted on 2004-11-23
I think this should be an easy question:
I booted up my PC today and received a 'statement' during the startup process, which I hit F1 to continue without paying too much attention unfortunately. My PC then booted up fine and all seems well, but the date and time on my PC have been reset - currently showing 01 Jan 2001 - 0100am.
With Apple Macs if this sort of thing happens it normally means that the lithium battery inside the machine as gone, but I've never come across this on a PC. Is it likely to be the same thing?
I'm running XP Pro, SP2 - and if it helps I can attempt to get the original message during boot up.
