Everytime we switch on the laptop, the time goes back to 2006.
I have manually set it back to 2013 and have also synced it with both
1) time.nist.gov
2) time.windown.com
These are the only options.
However, the next day, the clock will revert to 2006.
This happens everyday.
Because of this problem, it is creating other problems such as certificate issues when surfing the internet.
See attached.
Please kindly assist.

Such time reversions generally indicatee that the CMOS/RTC battery needs to be replaced.


Manufacturer and model of the laptop?

The RTC battery is located in the Hard drive compartment and can be changed by removing the HDD cover located on the back side of the laptop. See section 5-5 in the Service Manual From HP. You can purchase a suitable replacement from an Online retailer such as Newegg.com or Amazon.com you can also find them At Radioshack.
