Thanks for the update Wolf_3d
The fact that the date is correct in the BIOS rules out the CMOS battery having failed, if the battery had expired the time would have reverted back to 00.00 and the date would have reverted back to the date that the MB was tested back at the factory when the BIOS chip was initialized.
I am not aware of any hardware or software issue that could cause such behavior so as a precautionary measure before we continue here can I ask you to refer to the GTG malware self help guide and if necessary seek the assistance of the experts on those forums if you have a malware issue that you cannot resolve yourself, we will be here should you need to return to this topic.
Please read the 'Start Here'
topic found here
. With these self-help tools you have a high chance of fixing the problems on your own. If you are still having problems after following Step 3 of the guide, continue with Step 4 and 5 and post in the Malware Forum
. If you are unable to run any programs, Please create a topic stating what you have tried so far and that you are unable to run any programs. Also, Please do NOT
post the logs in this thread.
If you are still having issues after the malware expert gives you a clean bill of health, Please return to THIS
thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).Additional guidance;
1: Do not create a topic on the malware forum unless you have a malware issue that you cannot resolve yourself.
2: If you do need to start a topic there provide a link to this thread so that steps that have already been taken can be checked.
3: As the Malware Techs are extremely busy you may not receive an instant reply, if you have waited for three days then post in the Waiting Room http://www.geekstogo...e-waiting-room/
be sure to identify the issue as malware related and provide a link to your malware topic.
