Sony Windows XP Laptop Joined to Domain - Time Keeps Changing

I am having a really strange problem with a Sony laptop on our domain.
We have a windows 2000 domain controller
The Sony TX laptop is joined to a domain
It also has a built in Sprint CDMA card
For some reason the time changes to really strange dates
None of the computers on our network have this issue

It is an older Laptop?  Check and make sure the BIOS Battery is still working.  You can all so use the following in your logon script:
net time \\domaincontroller /set /y

This will set the time of the laptop to the time on your domain controller.

Also check that the DST patch is in place.

I hope this helps !

Fortunately the laptop was under warranty so we ended up getting a replacement motherboard and this fixed the problem. Since this model is so small the board and battery is all in one and very mini.
