Every time I switch my computer on the date/time setting has reverted to 00:01 on 1 Jan 2001 and I cannot open Office programs - they appear on the screen for a fraction of a second and disappear. :thumbsup:

Once I have reset the date/time I can open progs as normal.

Anyone got any ideas why this happens and what I can do to correct it?

Did you set the timezone correctly

First try this :
1)

Rightclick on the clock in the taskbar
Choose adjust time and date
Click on time
Tick the box : automaticly synchronize with a time server on the internet

In the dropdown menu choose the microsoft one

Thanks for that but that's not the problem; I've got time zone as GMT which is correct. Any other suggestions?

Sounds like you need to replace your battery.

Besides the battery make sure it is set correctly in the Bios.

Thanks for those suggestions. Guess what - I switched on this morning and it is fine; that's the first time in about 2 weeks! Time and Date are correct and all Office document stay on the screen.
