Date & Time Changes to intial install Date & Time 28 Dec 11

Each time I boot up my computer the Date & Time changes to the initial install date, 28 Dec 11 00:00:00 AM. I have changed the Date & Time to the correct date & time, however when I boot up a gain the date and time goes back to the initial install date, 28 Dec 11 00:00:00 AM.

I have installed a new Battery but the issue continues. I have also run Norton Premium Virus Scan, Norton Power Eraser and Norton Utilities and registry clean up. In addition I have cleaned up my restore point and deleted many programs in the Control panel - Uninstall.

I am now looking for any solution that might fix this error.

The use of all those tools

Makes the OS install suspect. I've seen Norton block access to internet time servers and more.

Since the error is now repeatable, and apparently OK before, restore the system to factory conditions.

which time are you talking about

In reply to: Date & Time Changes to intial install Date & Time 28 Dec 11

are you talking about system time? or the time in windows? If the time in your bios is correct sometimes the only thing you can do is to have it sync online whenever the computer is turned on.

Computer date and time changes

When ever this kind of issues occurs, First need to check the battery and check BIOS.It is possible your clock battery is dead, and loses the time every time you shut down your computer.
To get into the BIOS , you hit (F1? del??) before the pc boots up?F1, F2, and Del are common ones, especially F2. During the first screen on boot (Power On Self Test, or POST), it will usually say something like "Press F2 to enter Setup".for more info...plz check.@icognixtech
