Unhappy

I notice that the date and time in my k7s5a changes by itself - some times the date is a cuple of days old and the time could be am or pm but it will be wrong. What do you think is causing that to happened? Please help if you have any info. Thank you.

Are you sure someone in your house isn't playing a trick on you by messing w/ the date and time? j/k :D :D :D

I'd like to know the answer to that too. I think that may have happened to me once a few months ago. Never happened again though.

Try replacing the CMOS battery (or at least making sure it is fully seated/connected). Incorrect time/date is almost always due to either a low CMOS battery or one that just isn't making good contact. The K7S5A is known to have a few issues with CMOS batteries as well.

XP Pro rocks fast and much more stable than all the other windows versions. That's the best OS Microsoft has ever produced!!!

I ran Win98SE before - it was shit. You'll love XP, believe me!

It just happen to me with the 020429L.ROM BIOS

I just lost the time everything else in the BIOS was fine.

Using WinXP setup with ACPI

I want into the BIOS setup to check if the memory setting were at the fastest and they were so I changed nothing, press ESC No save and boot to WinXP.

WinXP said my time was wrong so I check and it was some date in 1999 !

Did a file search to see what file were dated in 1999 and whole bunch of setup files were, meaning it happen the day before.

I flash back to 011215L.ROM BIOS which is the one that came with the board. And install a tighter jumper on the CMOS.

I will see after one night being unpluged if it happen again.

Hopefully it't a ACPI/BIOS Problem not hardware.

Thank You
Jean

could be an os problem.
I had that problem before with Windows ME, I thought it's the battery, but it's not, I install Win2000 instead, problem solved.
