I have a four year old HCL desktop with Pentium dual core 2.66 Ghz, 80 GB HDD, 768 MB RAM, Windows XP Professional SP3 OS & Guardian 2009 registered antivirus. Few days back I noticed that the time shown in the system tray was lagging behind. I set the correct time but next day it was again running slow although the date was correct. I changed the the mother board battery & adjusted the time in the BIOS but the time is still running behind when ever I start the system, though the date is correct. The technician says that my BIOS needs to be updated to get over this problem. Is it true? I have read in CHIP that updating of BIOS is a daunting task & the mother board can be damaged & even my technician has said so. Will it rectify my problem.
