time clock

  JACC 19:16 12 Oct 2004

My clock only seems to work when the pc is running . It loses time when it is off , i reset it and when i reboot the pc the clock is at the time i set it to even tho the pc has been running for some hours in between .looking at the clock when i go to reset it , it is running .I've just set it for 19:14 . I'm using WXPpro , just looked at the clock in the taskbar and it is changing at the right time , what can be wrong .

IF your system is a few years old it could that the cmos battery needs replacing...this tends to make your clock and date go wonky.

If they are cr2032's, as are mine, Very cheap and easy to find. Any car shop, as they fit many car alarm remote controlls. Pay no more than £1.80 each.

But if not, post what they are/it is.
