Has anyone seen this problem before. I installed fresh after setting the BIOS up over a month ago and then installed XP Home upgrade over Win98se. And not get looping boots but my concern is the Time/Date & Year has reverted to Day 1 like the motherboard was new out of the box.
Putting Looping boots/re-boots continous & the BIOS Dates changing itself could I be looking at a virus, Power supply or faulty M/board. I am going to run a emergency Norton scan in dos.
I will be interested to see if it works as I just set up a new PC for a friend that had a similar problem, only thing is it was a brand newie so I don't think it was likely to be the batt so I left it as it didn't seem to cause any other probs. But the time and date in BIOS was always different on booting into BIOS.
it looses anything major over night (not switched on though) then run it all morning, HDD seems fine and passed is utility test. Think its going to be a process of illumination. I think the PSU looks possible also.
Have to go to sleep now, but thanks M8 Indigo 1 speak soon.
