PC losing time !!!!!!!

  Garden nome 17:17 19 Feb 2011

Hi everybody,
I have noticed recently that the little clock in the bottom right hand corner of my screen has lost a lot of time. For example; it has lost twenty minutes over a 48 hour period. Would this also have an effect on my receiving very very slow downloads?
I hope one of you experts can help me.
Many thanks
Garden nome.

Time to change the BIOS battery....
Your PC may start to refuse to perform certain operations that require a valid time stamp if it loses too much time.

Sounds like you have had the PC for some time, BIOS Battery last for years, you are also switching of at mains plug that's why it showing slow as if the plug switch is left on it does not run the battery down as fast.
