PC clock II

When I boot a pc it shows the date and time that the pc was shutdown the previous day? Has anyone seen this before? I have replaced the CMOS battery and reset the CMOS. PLEASE HELP!

First determine if the clock is running while it is powered off.
This can be done by going into cmos setup as you boot up. Check the time
on the clock and see if it is correct before the operating system comes up.
If it has a bad time then your battery power to the clock is bad.
If it is good then boot on up and check the time. if it now bad you have something in the system seeting the shutdown time in the clock.

Boot command prompt only or from a safe disk to DOS. Is the date correct? If so, you might have a Windows misconfiguration/virus/etc. Else, replace the motherboard. I also have one computer in the network that drives me crazy with it's changing of the date totally out of any pattern. I solved it using a time server on the LAN.

write a small batch file and 192.1.1.1 is representing the IP of a machine on your network with good time. Place this in your start up menu
save this text file as "time.bat" with the quotes
____________________________________
net time \\192.1.1.1 /set
echo your time has been reset
pause
____________________________________

this will syn your clock to that PC as long as that IP is valid on boot up.

if you are on a network then just net time /set will work to the server it has set aspreferred server.
