    I think the RTC may have gone bad on the board. Is there any to test your RTC?

    How about booting it just to a Dos prompt, leave it on for couple of hours and see if it changes. That way you will be sure that windows or software are not changing time and than it's only BIOS and RTC left. In that case updating or re applying BIOS might help.

    Yah sometimes a BIOS update can help, good idea CountMike. If he don't have a way to boot to a Dos Prompt, you can use Hiren's Boot CD and run Mini-XP and see if it happens in there, if it doesn't then it is the OS causing it somehow.

    Tablet time


    I red all the fixes. However, I don't have a problem with my Laptop or desktop running 8.1 pro 32 bit and 64 bit.
    My tablet has problem running 8.1 basic (not pro). I have no idea how to change the battery or even how to open
    the tablet, nor how to get into the bios.

Solved Clock? in Customization
Anyone know how to put a clock on the start screen? Either as a metro tile of a part of the wallpaper. Seems strange to have to go to the desktop or lock the computer to see what time it is! :shock:
