Each time I switch on the pc, my time is wrong. I rest it to the right time but it goes back wrong and my year shows something like 2002 etc. My Avanst av also tell me it cannot update "Pls correct my time" After I do this, it still says "Pls correct time"
Pls advise. Thank you.
I think this happened when my net provider had a port proble and took weeks to replace. So I didn't use my pc for like a month. The problem was there the first time I switched my pc on when tey hads replaced the port on their side.

Are you using XP?
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

Have you tried replacing the CMOS battery, on your motherboard?
It will look like this:

I have never opened my cpu and don't know how to. Is there any other way I could find out if it's the batter? All other things are working well and good. I will have to get a technician if I need to repl a battery or is it just a simple task? And where do I get this particular battery? (A round one?)

What make, and model is your computer.
Changing a CMOS battery is a simple task, that you should be able to do yourself.
Most places that sell batteries, should carry this type of battery.

My pc is a Compaq Presario SR1080CF Desktop

How can I tell whether it's the battery or motherboard? (cos I heard the battery from HP should last like 10 years or so. Mine is probably like 4 years. Or am I suppose to just replace the battery to find out? If so, are there any diagrams to show me how to remove it so that ZI am able to show the shop the battery I need? Thks

Have you tried this?

To change your time, go to Start > Control Panel and double-click Date, Time, Language and Regional Options.
Note: Depending on your settings (classic view) it may show as Regional and Language Options.
In the Regional Options tab, under Standards and formats click the Customize... button.
Click the Time tab, and then click the down arrow next to the Time format box.
Select: h:mm:ss tt
Click Apply then Ok to exit.
