Windows calendar wrong..!

By saiello ·
Hi All,
My clock was running slow so I replaced the CMOS battery, twiddled with the BIOS settings to get them back to 'normal' and I made sure the BIOS system date was set to 06/02/2008. Everything seemed ok until I went to check the date/time in Windows (XP SP2). The calendar does not give me the opportunity to set the right date, I set the month and year, but it shows the wrong date, i.e. where it should be Wednesday 6th Jan 2008, it sets to Wednesday 2nd Jan 2008, 4 days out??? There is obviously no way to set this in Windows. I've changed CMOS batteries before no problem, so what's gone wrong here, and how can I correct it? Any help greatfully received!

It's February?? Holy f**k, what an *ss! My head's been screwed lately (boss on my back, too many drugs!), I quickly checked the date, thought it was wrong then went onto search t'internet for possible problems. Lots of reference to BIOS corruptions, flashing needed, etc.. I'm a programmer not a hardware guy and I needed it sorted pronto..! It actually took me 2 minutes to change the battery.. ;o)

Thanks ( in shame ),

it wasnt that it took a long time to change the battery, it was the excessive tiredness after doing such a task. Likely he slept for a month.

Hey Buddy, look in the mirror, you need to shave... LOL
