Cannot validate XP after Re-Install, "clock won't sync" yet IS in sync RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, I just reinstalled again, as I have done many times before due to various reasons over the past 2 years and have never had a problem verifying that my copy of Windows is valid until now.
    This laptop came from a respected retailer with Windows XP already installed, and prompted me to make backup DVD's for future re-installation which I did. I have never given these discs to anybody else to use, and they are still in perfect condition.
    The BIOS clock is in sync with my location (GMT+10:00), as is the clock in my taskbar, and I don't believe it is the internal battery as the clock never resets. I sync the clock with the internet, it gives me a msg saying that it failed, but then leaves a msg that it was successfully synced at that time.
    I did re-arrange the RAM and take the battery, and internal battery out, then put it all back together again, because whatever was wrong with my laptop before wouldn't even let me re-install until I did this. It would just reset on startup even if i attempted to boot in safe mode, and give me an error like DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, among other errors, although this is beside the point.
    Everything else is fine and passes the WGA online tests. This is extremely frustrating, I will find a new battery when i can, maybe in a few days, although I don't believe it is the problem. If you can assure me that it IS the problem then I will make sure I do this sooner. The time and year are correct, I have checked this countless times.
    Did the internal battery die exactly when I reinstalled?
    I'm sure I can run out the main battery and it will still retain the correct time, in fact, I will do this now.
    I just want to upgrade to service pack 3 etc.
    Any help would be appreciated, this is a bad time to be happening right now.
    Also I have reinstalled twice today and the same thing happens. I just don't understand why it says the clock is wrong when I can clearly see it is right, I have selected the right location, etc.
    This is the error given by the website: [0x80080210]

  • Thankyou,

    I flashed the BIOS as method 4 states on that page, I didn't realise there was an upgraded BIOS for this laptop. I also found some other upgrades and patches while I was there. At first I thought it didn't work, but the second time around I actually entered the date wrongly. I am tired but now it's working. I'm not sure which part exactly was the problem, but my system is now validated and I'm getting service pack 3. Maybe the old BIOS was the original problem causing the need to reformat in the first place, or something one of the other patches I downloaded fixed. It was crashing at random times before this last reinstall. Let's hope so.
