Computer clock loses time in Windows XP Home Edition

by Prickly Pear / January 22, 2005 12:59 AM PST

I use Windows XP home edition. Just within the past week my computer clock has been losing time. I have to keep resetting it and it's becoming a pain in the tushy. My computer is on for most of the day and night. I do put it in "stand by" mode when taking a 2-4 hour break. Not sure what other information you may need. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
