Welcome
Check cmos battery..A bad battery will cause other problems when it dies
You can lose settings, etc.

Thanks a lot!
As “ur link” reads: “If your computer seems to "forget" the date and time whenever you shut down, the culprit is probably a weak CMOS battery” – my computer doesn’t forget but it keeps the same time.
I have a home computer for more than 3 years and I’ve never had any complaint. About a month ago installed windows 7 and that time failure appeared. So I doubted whether that was win7 failure or not.
Appreciate ur help

Hi! gelaw, welcome to 7F

Your situation is unusual although, not unheard of.

For the wont of a Pound, Euro, Dollar, a new BIOS battery, usually in my experience a CR2032 type, is not going to break even my bank.

As you say "I have a home computer for more than 3 years and I’ve never had any complaint". So the battery is hardly new. I have a 7 year old car, one day it doesn't start, but it was OK yesterday. I still have to walk, catch a bus, until I buy a new bit to replace the old "OK" bit. Things fail and sadly, never on their own, always when you've done something else so to cast that doubt in your mind.

I have upgraded many machines from XP to 7 and each time I had this problem with the clock, I needed to flash the BIOS with the latest version. Fixed it every time. -WS

There is only one thing that I or anyone else can tell you. The CMOS battery is usually the cause for your problem
