I have a very odd problem using WinMe and an HP Pavilian 7850, the system time in WinMe and in the bios keeps reverting to January 1, 1900, 12:00AM causing WinMe to be unable to boot. how do I make WinMe remember the time I had set?

This is a classic sign of a CMOS battery on the motherboard going bad. Luckily, replacing the battery is usually very easy and inexpensive. Just do an Internet search for "Replace CMOS Battery" and you will find a ton of helpful information.

Just note that if you're going to replace the CMOS battery on the motherboard you have to unplug all cables connected to the computer and hold the power button for 30 seconds to discharge any leftover electricity. Afterwards remove the older CMOS battery from the motherboard and place the new one in then you're all set.
