Clock & date changes

  bricul 10:46 11 Sep 09

For the last few days, on power up (which includes switching on the mains) the clock and date have changed, sometimes date goes back to 2006 or it might be just a day. Is this likely to be the motherboard battery on its way out?

Almost certainly this is the motherboard battery at the end of its useful life.

Very often you will get "checksum error" as well when the cmos battery is on its way out.
