Time & Date windows 98

  hargranules 13:42 25 May 06


I have seen two computers this week that no longer hold the time and date, they are both windows 98.

I know I can change the CMOS Battery but I was wondering if it is a microsoft issue. Just seemed a bit of a concidence that they have both gone at same time.

Any ideas????

No it's mainly the battery that's the problem, But if that does not correct it then it's the BIOS chip that's at fault or the MOBO. Windows only kicks in to keep the time when it's running
