Hi i am working on a sony vaio laptop and have the oddest thing happning.

When ever you turn off the computer the time in windows stopps. I have yet to check the bios time but i suspect the same

When the customer brought it in the first time he had not used it since the night before
he brought it in about 1:30 on the 4th when i turned it on the time read 945pm 2/3/09

So i wanted to see if it was the bios i set the time by my cell phone turned it off and pulled the power and the battery.
I also held down the power button for 60 seconds see if i could get it to fully drain

I turned the laptop off at say 1:35pm and started it back up at about 1:50 pm
The clock was at 1:35pm

It had a 15 min time diffrence.
I had him scan the computer yesterday with malwarebytes and it pulled up nothing.

This is bugging me any info i find is about the bios battery but that is if it is dead.

Understandbly if the bios battery is dead it would lose time back to its default which could be 2006 or likie 2020.


Any clues?

If it's getting old and ready to go belly-up, that could be the problem also

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

Change the cmos battery. If the battery is weak, you usually notice your time being off first. I hope this helps...
