If replacing the motherboard doesn't fix it, then I can share that a few systems were fixed by upgrading the power supply. It took an oscilloscope to find that the 3.3V supply to the RTC was dipping and causing the RTC to corrupt. Adding 100 Watts to the PSU rating helped immensely. The ones that failed beyond this were solved with a new motherboard.
If its new, make it a warranty item.
My clock gets changed at random to some random Year value. Sometimes it gets set to 9999, another time it gets set to 10004.
Could someone tell me how to fix this problem. I have been told it is the CMOS settings of the ECS motherboard, or a loose battery.
important thing to remember is, this happens when the system is Up, not during or after shutdown and reboot.
- thank you
