Windows 7: Time Changed

Time Changed

Hi Guys -- I just took out a USB board in my PC and installed a new one. There were not other changes. The PC was shut down for five minutes while I did this. I did not install the software driver cd that came with the board. When I booted up the date had been reset to Jan 1, 2009. I set it back and it is staying that way so no further problems. I was just curious what might have done that and if that date has any meaning. My motherboard had a build date of something in 2012. Any ideas on what happened. Thanks,

Hi Bigmck,

No mystery there - that'll be the Bios Firmware date not the manufacturing date.

Have a look in your Device manager - youll see drivers from 2006!!!

It changes to it's original date because it is when the BIOS was manufactured.

Real Time Clock (RTC) is maintained by CMOS battery. If it is changing to the default after a cold boot, change the CMOS battery (CR2032).
