Hi all! My clock is always slow, even after sync w/internet, after an hour or so it starts to lose time. Also my computer runs like crap, and am wondering if the battery would cause that. I'm going to check the battery type today & hopefully go get a new one. Any suggestions would be helpfull. After I replace the battery I'll be doing all my reg maint, disk defrag, scan disk & virus scan (all in safe mode :thumbsup: ) My cookies are cleaned everyday. Anyway, thanks in advance for any help.

The CMOS battery on the motherboard can cause the clock to change time, but you should also see the date effected as well if this is the case. Changing the battery is inexpensive and won't harm anything, but it will change your BIOS setting back to the defaults that it came with. This means that if you have a USB mouse that was enabled in the BIOS you will need to re-enable it in the BIOS.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
