I had a problem today my system would not start. It would only boot to a black screen. I check my BIOS setting and found my system date had changed to:12 JANUARY 1980 After changing back all seems fine. I am just a little confused as to what would cause this.
Try another restart and see if it happens again. If it does then you may well have a motherboard fault that is resetting the BIOS in the same way as a dead battery would. Certainly would take it back under warranty if that was the case.
