Hi

Twice now in the space of 2 weeks,the date and time on my PC has been changed.

The PC is only 15 months old,so I guess the MB battery is that old as well.I have checked the BIOS,it says the battery voltage in 3.2v.

If the PC boots incorrectly,or the OS,could this change the time?.

Cheers

It certainly sounds like a bad CMOS battery

AS they are very cheap, I would renew it and see if it happens again.
