  • Question

  • My home server clock reverted back to January 2007, thereby not allowing it to be accessed by my client machines.  The only fix I found was to connect a monitor and keyboard(I know, a no no) and manually reset the date and time.  What could cause this?

  • How's the CMOS battery?

  • As Ken mentioned, it is usually the battery on the mainboard, which is empty and therefore causes the Bios to loose buffered data and the real time clock not to run.

    Also after changing this battery you will need to have set time and date in the Bios first and also repeat other adjustments made, which are different from the boards default settings (i.e. SATA controller mode or boot sequence).
