Preferred Solution: login screen and date and time display

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Question: login date/time

Its been a long time since Ive last been on here i know Ive just been slammed with work the past couple months. But anyways; I know the answer to this has been posted before but i cant seem to find it right now. How do i enable the system to show the last time/date the account was logged into. I know there is a way to make it so that it displays this info upon logging into one's account. How is this done? thanks matt.

My date/time display is set to show the time in 24 hours instead of 12am/pm hours. I do not know how to change it. Changing the internet time doesn't help and there doesn't seem to be a way on the clock. I used to have am/pm displayed. How can I change it? Also, can I have the date displayed with the time on the taskbar?

Answer:Task bar display-date/time display

I had mine changed to 24hr once because of a malware, hope this is not your case! Assuming everything its fine, this is how you do it:

This tutorial will teach you how to change your system time from 24 hour to 12 hour.

First of all, Click Start and then click on Control Panel.

In the Control Panel (And this is with the Category View) click on Date, Time, Language and Regional Options.

After clicking that, click on Change the format of numbers, dates and times.

A box will pop up, click on the Customize Button next to the drop-down menu of formats according to their country.

Another box should appear. Click on the Time tab. If your system is already running using 24 hour time, in the Time format box there should be HH:mm:ss.

The two Capital H's make the clock use 24 hour. To change this, replace the Capital H's with small h's. So, you should have changed the format from HH:mm:ss to hh:mm:ss.

Now, that's fine and dandy, but you might want it to say either PM or AM at the end. To make this happen, add two small t's at the end of the format. So, the format code should now be hh:mm:ss tt.

Click on OK. And now click Apply in the Regional and Language Options box, and then click OK again.

Hopefully your time in the system tray should be in 12 hour.

I have a date problem. When I switch my computer on the date comes up as 16/4/2016, 8.30am. I have to manually change this before accessing the internet etc. I have changed the battery on the motherboard as I thought this might be the problem but it made no difference, it still came up with 16/4/2016, 8.30am. The following messages pop up on screen with a blank bios screen a couple of times each message, messages are as follows:

When I first built this system for some reason I set the clock so that it keeps time in 24 hour format. Though by doing so it would still display what day it was along with the date when I would hold the cursor over top the time display.

But here lately for some apparent reason all it displays is the date, and not what day of the week it is.

I have looked all over the control panel for some way to check and see if some setting has been changed inadvertently. But so far I have been unsuccessful at finding the option of setting the clock display.
 

Answer:Solved: How to adjust the Date & Time Display?

Control Panel | Regional and Language Options

Long date should show Sunday, February 08, 2009 for today. If not, click the Customize... button, then the Date tab.

If the Local has changed from your original setting, just change it back. Your customizations should have been saved.
Depending on why things got changed, they may have been reset though, so you may need to customize the Date and Time display again.

This has never happened before. When I turn on the computer, the two accounts show up (both administrator) but whenever I click either of them, the screen just shows the Windows 7 login screen for a while without any text then sends me back to the account selection. This happens when I select either of the accounts, one of them also has a password but that doesn't show up either.

PLEASE HELP.

Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone here knew of a way to make the Windows XP clock display the "short date" (ie 01/01/2008) next to the time in the system tray. I did some googling and found a free software app that displays the date and time, but it doesn't allow you to make it display the short date (it was Clock Tray Skins Lite). I'm posting here because I'd like to save the trouble of downloading 10 programs just to see which one will actually let me use the short date, because maybe one of you have found one that works before me. Oh and it needs to use the same font that my Windows clock is currently set to...

I'd like to make it display dd/MM/yy HH:mm (24 hr). I set my clock to that in the Regoinal options in the Contral panel but it doesn't display the date unless the taskbar is widened. Plus it doesn't show short date. Maybe there is a registry tweak for this?

- Thanks for any help or suggestions!

When using Windows Explorer, a directory listing can show a number of different columns of course but it appears the default is Date Modified .. which is fine. However, it doesn't show "seconds". The same appears to be the case for the command line output for "dir".

I've updated the BIOS and set the date and time in the BIOS but it flushes it to null values (00:00 & mm/dd/yyyy) every time it shuts down (no prob. if you just restart). If you hit F1, it boots fine and displays the correct date and time in Windows. Bad CMOS battery? But it's never unplugged... shouldn't it still hold onto that info. so long as it's connected to a power source - or is power completely interrupted when in Shut Down? I've run the full, 5hr. diagnostic in the BIOS and get no errors.

Answer:Black Screen Message: Time & Date Not Set

Hi there @Scott23, Welcome to the HP Support Forums! It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts and other support personnel. I understand that your system is loosing the date and time when you restart the computer. I am happy to give you a hand with this.  It does sound like a CMOS battery issue. When a computer is powered down the CMOS battery is what would maintain the date and time. When the date and time is set, and as long as the system is powered the date and time is not going to reset, but if the battery is bad and the system is powered down or if there is a power flicker, you are likely to lose the date and time.  So looking at the HP and Compaq Desktop PCs - Motherboard Specifications, (Laurel-G), they do not mention anything about the battery, but from the photo it appears to be the disk-like item in the lower right. You may want to contact phone support over this if you wish to replace the battery. Please use the following http://www.hp.com/contacthp and create a case for your issue and contact HP. If you live outside the US/Canada, please click the link below to get the contact information for your region. http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-phone-assist.html Please let me know how that works for you, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.

Hi,

apologies if this has been covered before somewhere else.
I am trying to remove the time and date from the lock screen. having searched I have seen several customisation options but the only one that actually covered this specifically was to make a change in regedit:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SystemProtectedUserData\S-1-5-21-x-x-x-x\AnyoneRead\LocaleInfo

this brought about issues relating to administrator accounts which seem to be a common problem with windows 8.1.
nearly all of the solutions were not available to me but I finally found I could make the change in regedit by changing ownership of the file and changing the format of the time to a space. unfortunately the date is still showing.
how can I remove the date?

further, just to clarify, does the original account I signed in with have full administrator privileges? are they disabled and need to be enabled?
ive seen the tutorial on the built in elevated administrator account, this didn't work on its own either. do some files require a change of ownership to be altered regardless of which account you are signed in with including the administrator account?

any help appreciated

thanks

Brad

For the past week or so my computer has been starting up showing the time as 23.03 and the date as 31st December 2002. I have corrected time and date - connected to "Automatically synchronize with Internet Time Server" - had confirmation that time and date successfully synchronized - next time computer switched on time and date setting reverted to 23.04 on 31st December 2002.

Normally, when computer is switched on a 'DOS' type screen appears for a second or so - then it scrolls through various Microsoft Windows XP - loading your personal settings, etc. When it opens up with an incorrect time and date I get a different 'DOS' type screen - at the bottom of which are the options:

F1 to continue - DEL to enter SETUP

F1 continues to the normal start up routine - DEL opens up another 'DOS' screen - and on this screen pressing F10 offers the choice to exit and save - Y for yes N for no

Have tried saving this screen when correct time and date displayed - reverts to incorrect time and date next time machine switched on.

I would appreciate any help and guidance that I can get.

Depending on computer/laptop model that logo/splash might be hard or not possible to remove.
What splash screen can it be then... Art for art's sake...

Seems you've already posted this on DELL's site.

I'm guessing this splash screen s from Windows 8: date time included. Is not related to the BIOS.

This one is called lock screen, pretty useless because it's just for the looks, requires an extra key press... reduces productivity.

Hello,I'm using the ThinkPad SL510 and have a problem with the energy options. No matter what I choose (I disabled EVERYTHING which has even slightly to do with the screen), after some time the screen gets black as if I chose it to shutdown after about 10 minutes. But I didn't, it says "Never". When I move the cursor it's on again, so it seems to go into standby or something. Also sometimes the login-screen pops up after about 10 minutes of doing nothing (it seems to choose at random what to do).I tried using other energy options and even made my own profile with everything disabled but i still happens. Screensavers are disabled as well. Does anyone have a idea how I can disable that? I just want it to never shut down the screen or the notebook itself and never open the login-screen.

Answer:SL510 - Always gets back to login-screen after some time

Hi. I don't have a solution to your problem, just want to sympathize that my SL510 exhibits similar flakey behavior. I set all the screen shutdown settings in the BIOS and Windows to Never shutdown, but the screen still shuts down after 15 minutes anyway. I finally "solved" the problem by setting the BIOS screen shutdown time to 15 minutes. Now the machine's actual behavior matches the meaningless system settings. See how computers work?

I frequently am logging in and out of my Windows 8.1 laptop. I have a good, secure password that I use and because I'm human, sometimes I mistype it. The issue is that on these occasions, I am locked out for a good 30 seconds from attempting to
login, even for the second time.

I can understand the time delay if it were say, my 5th or 6th attempt, but for one attempt this is entirely too long. How do I go about significantly reducing this, or ideally removing it?

Answer:login screen takes a loooong time

If you're running XP Pro and it belongs to a domain, but you don't have a domain controller available it can take a long time. Otherwise, it's something (or many things) that take time to get going when you start up. Spyware or a virus? ehhh...Maybe...

But first, try looking at your services and see if there's too much going on. Also, check your system and application event logs. Look for the events right after startup, and in particular look for things that time-out, repeat themselves often, have red warnings, or follow a significant interval of time since the previous message in the log.

I suspect that you just got too much crap running. Uninstall stuff that you know that you don't need. P2P would be the first thing I'd boot from my system if I were you.

Good luck.

Hi there,

It takes my Packard bell Easynote TX86 about 2 minutes until it reaches to the login screen.
It seems to me a very long time.

Answer:Long time until I reach login screen

Try turning off all items in Startup with the exception of the Microsoft items and your antimalware and firewall software. Then reboot - is it quicker? Read this for more help:

Hi all,

I have been using windows 10 for over a year now pretty much daily on my desktop self build computer relatively problem free.

I didn't use the machine yesterday but tried to boot it today. It will display the BIOS splash screen, then the windows swirly circle then nothing. A blank screen.

After turning it off and on 3 times I have got the screen with the troubleshooting options. I have tried the option of repairing the startup. This doesn't work. I have managed to boot into safe mode but am unsure where to go from there. I'm not really sure what safe mode option to choose.

I have booted to an UBUNTU live flash drive and this works fine so I am fairly certain I don't have a hardware issue.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I did notice that someone else has posted a similar problem today but I didn't want to hijack their thread.

CPU is an i5-3570k.

Answer:Windows 10 won't display login screen

If you are stuck at the black screen with a spinning dot circle I ask wither you have a USB mouse &/or keyboard installed - especially Logitech? If so then remove the dongle & restart, USB dongles are reported to interfere with the boot process especially after an update.

Hi everyone,

Before we start, I'm a total noob on this subject, so please be gentle with me.

I've experienced 'very' slow boot times in the given time interval (before it took maybe 10 sec, now it takes 2-3 minutes). After login the machine is ready for usage within 30 sec. I've searched on several forums for what the problem could be and these are the steps which I've taken so far:
* performed defragmentation on the harddrive
* deleted all windows updates and reinstalled them
* look at the event logger, but I couldn't find anything causing mayor and/or reoccuring problems
These things didn't work out for me. I've included the machine's specs in my profile, I hope it suffices.

Could you please help me?

Answer:Slow boot time before login screen but after BIOS

Hello melli and welcome to Seven Forums.

Have a look through these tutorials (2nd post) for some of the more common ways to speed up Windows 7.

Speeding up Windows 7 boot times

As a suggestion, before you try anything that involves changing settings or going into the registry, etc it would be a good idea to make a new restore point "just in case" something doesn't work and you want to roll back the computer.

Hi
I have an Acer desktop i3, 6gb 2 years old running Windows 7 home premium.
For the past few months I 've been getting a problem with slow boot time, from the initial black Acer screen to Windows starting to load takes between 3 minutes 20 seconds and 3 minutes 30 seconds. Windows loads immediately afer the login screen. This happens every time. I am also having a problem with screen flicker. If there is any window open, it gives a very quick flicker every so often. This seems to be stopping my screensaver kicking in. I can preview screensaver but it stops every time at 3 minutes 30 seconds. I use SkyGo in full screen, it drops out of full screen after 3 minutes 30 seconds. Same as the boot time. It seems as though one thing is causing all the problems but I don't know what.
I have run every type of repair I can think of and now have used the recovery disks to return to factory settings thinking this might solve the problems. It didn't, boot time just the same, no screensaver etc.
I am totally at a loss now, has anyone any idea what could be causing this? Are there any other checks I can make?
Thanks

Greetings, and thanks in advance for your help..

Awhile back I formatted my Windows 10 PCs to show ddd dd-mmm-yyyy on my taskbar clock. This worked happily on my desktop and laptop for months, maybe even a year +

Now (probably starting in the past couple days, if not today), on one of those two PC's, this format will no longer display. It is Okay on the other PC.
What has changed that the taskbar clock space used to expand to fit the "short date" format, but now it will no longer expand - and instead just refuses to display the date at all. (NOTE: I've verified the issue by testing shorter formats -- short formats, like "ddd" show up correctly. Only if you request a longer format will the date not display - evidently because it is too long for the clock area. )

Additional Notes that may help:

* "Working" pc is running build 10586 PC with too small a clock space that won't expand -- Build 14393

*Other differences: Notification/Action center Icon is left of clock on the working PC - Right of clock on the non-working
Right- Clicking on task bar gives "properties" option on working PC -- But "Settings" option on the non-working

( I don't want to prejudice responses - but clearly the implication to me is that some recent OS update is most likely the culprit.)

Thank You

Recently and all of a sudden (perhaps after using a VGS projector) when i boot my laptop i do not get any video display - not even my TOSHIBA POST or the "starting windows" screen. But when the boot gets to the login screen it dispalys on my laptop and from thereon everything is fine and normal

If i connect an external monitor or projector i can see everything right from the very beginning on the external monitor such as the TOSHIBA POST and the starting wndows etc. When the login screen appears the dispaly from the external monitor dissappears and the dispaly returns to my laptop screen after which everything is normal.

I have installed (and reinstalled) the latest video card drivers for the ATI card
I have reflashed the bios
I have reset the bios setttings to default
Since i image my computer often i restored two previous images of my system drive but to no avail
I have NOT reset my CMOS as i do not know where to find the battery inside the laptop

What can i do/try to get back the display of the boot which was very much there a few days earlier

thanks

Answer:No video display on laptop until login screen

When you recently used the projector did you switch the screen output to just the laptop screen instead of leaving it in the "mirror" or "projector only" mode? You probably left it in one of those modes, which is causing this. Hit the Windows + P combination to make sure you're in the default laptop screen only mode.

Basically I have 2 monitors. Monitor 1 is my primary and monitor 2 is my secondary. I also use Monitor 1 with a different input source (which I switch via the monitors OSD).

The problem is I would like the login screen to display on Monitor 2 as I cannot see it on Monitor 1 if I am using my other source as input.

I still want to keep monitor 1 as my primary however (so the start menu, desktop icons, etc. stay on it) as it is the better display as such I use it when actually using my PC.

I'm wondering if it is possible to do this?

Answer:My xp loads and when it should display login screen it goes black.

Hello minas

Try to borrow an XP installation CD and follow the instructions below

Configure your PC to boot from CD if it isn't already set up that way. You may need to enter the BIOS to configure the PC to boot from the CD.
Set the boot order to
Floppy (if present)
CDROM
Hard Disk
SAVE and EXIT

Start your PC with the XP Setup CD in the drive. When you see the "Press any key to boot from CD..." prompt, do so and let the CD-based boot process begin.

When the Recovery Console option is offered ("Press R to start the Recovery Console"), do so. You may be asked which Windows installation to enter, in which case type the number of the Windows installation you wish to work on (usually "1").

When prompted, enter the Administrator's password for that Windows installation. If you did not set a password just press ENTER

At the command prompt, type
fixmbr
ENTER

Then type
fixboot
ENTER

Then type
EXIT

Hi all,

I'm running Windows Vista and recently ran a Windows Automatic Update. The next time I started up my PC, however, it began to load windows, the icon showed up, and the startup sound played, but rather than the usual login screen it was just a blank, black screen with no mouse cursor.

My first step was to reboot, which had no effect.

Then I rebooted again, and when the blank, black screen was encountered, tried typing in my Windows password. This caused the screen to display my Desktop Wallpaper, but nothing else (no menu bar, no icons, nothing). If I press Ctrl-Alt-Del while the wallpaper is displayed, it goes back to the blank, black screen.

I then booted in Safe Mode without a problem and did a System Restore to just before the last Windows Update. The Restore proceeded and automatically restarted the PC. However, the same problem was encountered. I tried another System Restore to an earlier restore point, but the same problem was encountered.

I then tried booting using the Last Known Good Configuration option, but again the same problem.

Any suggestions? Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.

Any idea what might cause this and how to repair it? Windows is fully patched/updated, avg antivirus running, ran glary utilities, updated video card drivers today. Also, I had Crysis 2 crash a few days ago, and this problem emerged at roughly that time. Could the Crysis 2 crash have somehow corrupted the video card drivers?

Hi All,
I am using LUMIA 1320 that has Lumia Cyan.
Sometimes the time and date is getting reset to a specific date, i.e. 22nd May 2014
Due to this all reminder, alarms and new messages are not coming in sync.
Is this a virus? Does it have come from an app. If that is the case then it questions Microsoft App policies...
Anyone who has encountered this issue and has done something to eradicate it let me know.

Answer:Why is my phones time and date getting reset to a specific date?

First, windows phone can never get a virus. Its the safest platform after iOS . And no, a particular app can't affect the system's time and date. I think your should try to manually set the time and date in the settings. And see if it works.

Okay, when I start up windows XP Home, after the splash screen it auto-logs in but it still shows the blue screen with the blue bars at the top and bottom, which is normal. The Problem is, the bottom bar is not blue, it is a dark green and sometimes has a diagonal like through it splitting it into green and white. Similarly, when I start up Farcry, the very first Ubisoft screen that shows up is split from the top-left corner to the bottom right corner with a diagonal line. On the bottom left, the loading sequence is normal, but the upper right is black, or some other color. This continues and I have to restart my computer, because restarting the game doesn't help at all. Also, I have had the same problem with Farcry with a slight variation. Yesterday, there were just there 1-2 inch horizontal bars flashing on and off and as before, I had to restart my computer, but even then it doesn't seem to guarentee that the game will work and that the windows log-in screen will be flawless. I'm wondering if this could be a graphics card over-heating issue? Any kind of suggestion would be GREATLY appreciated. I have all ot the newest drivers, so I'm not really sure what else to do?

First time posting in this forum, please forgive me if this question has been asked and answered.
I have searched the net in vain for an answer, and I hope someone here can help.

I am running Windows 7 Ultra on several PC's in the house.
I also have a Windows 2003 Domain Controllers that these PCs belong to.
One of those PCs, is in my home office and is shared with 3 local users and one local administrator on that PC.
I need to find a solution where all of the local users and local administrator are displayed on the logon screen.

I read somewhere that if a PC belongs on a domain, the welcome screen is not shown, the login screen is shown instead.
Typically, without a domain, the welcome screen shows all the local users.
If a computer belongs to the domain, the logon screen can only show the last user or other user.
This PC is shared and I don't want to burden my wife and kids to type the DomainName\UserName or .\UserName when they try to login.
Most likely they would forget to do this and login to the domain (which I am trying to avoid).

I would really appreciate it if someone in this community would help me achieve this task.
Thanks in advance.

I am on Insider Preview build 14965 and there is a Group Policy item that is made exactly for that, but it may be build specific or may have appeared since the Anniversary Update, I cannot be sure as I never went looking for this particular setting until you posted your question.

See if your Group Policy has the following:

Enumerate local users on domain-joined computers (Computer Configuration --> Administrative templates --> System --> Logon)

If so, try enabling that and seeing if it works, and (moreimportantly) if it sticks after the first non-domain login on the laptop.

EDIT: Added the following

OK, looking up that GP entry, I see that according to Enumerate local users on domain-joined computers | Windows security encyclopedia that it has been around since Windows 8, so you should have it on your machine, assuming you're not running Windows 10 Home joined to a domain.

Hi all!
Before I ask my question I just want to let everyone know that this site has been a great help.

So, I have a TextBox that needs to accept a date and time. Simple enough. However, the data that I need to collect has to always have a date and time but when I use General Date it will accept either Date or Time or both as its designed to do so.

I have tried setting

Format as " m/d/yyyy h:nn:ss ampm "
Input Mask as " 90/90/0000\ 99:00:00\ >LL;0;_ "

and tinkered with me.textbox.format() as an if statment

But this leads to the other issue that most of this data will be pasted into the form in either of the below formats.

I'm stumped and haven't been able to figure this out through research or my own luck.

Any help is appreciated and thank you all.
 

Answer:General Date Forced To Have Date And Time

So.... I think I figured it out. Been testing it and it seems to result in the way i need it to. So I have the Form/Table set to Date/Time Field formatted as a General Date. This will at least validate that the information inputted in the text-box is a date/time of some sort. Then I added the below code to make it follow a validation rule of sort. So far it seems regardless of the way information is pasted in the end result is always MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM:SS AMPM
If Me.YourTextBox Like "**/**/**** **:**:** **" Then
Cancel = False
Else
MsgBox ("Please enter a date and time in this format MM/DD/YYYY HH:MM:SS AM/PM")
Cancel = True
End If
I'm still open to suggestions if there is a more efficient way of doing this. If not I hope this information will be found helpful to others.
Thanks All,

Hi,

When I log onto a windows 10 computer, log out, remote onto the computer with a different account and then log out, the login screen wont update the display name but it will update the user name.

I noticed this started with 1703 and have the same issue with 1709.

Any idea on how to get the Display name to update or to completely hide the remote users details and just show the original users login details?

This is an example of the login screen after doing the above process. Also seems to happen to some users that share a computer.

So, what happened over the past few days have been a lot. The first that I notice after having my computer on for only about 30 minutes ( of playing Minecraft ) I started to smell this weird burning smell. After smelling the smell, I immediately turned off my computer because even I know a burning smell is not a good thing. So I went on my tablet and looked at a bunch of related forum posts about the burning smell and I realized that it had something to do with the PSU so I ordered a new one. I installed the PSU earlier today, with some difficulty (I am very inexperienced with computers). I start up my computer and everything seems normal until I get to the time display screen. The little symbol at the bottom had a little white wheel that was spinning and then turned into a red X.

Long story short: This weird symbol does not allow me to go to the log on screen and I am very confused.

I am so sorry if someone already has a thread and solution, I am new to this forums and have not had time to look for a problem thread similar to mine. Side Note: I apologize for my dirty screen.

Hopefully someone can help me with my problem. Thanks in advance!

Answer:Strange Symbol on Time Display Screen

Your Operating System is actually version 8.1. You haven't filled in enough of your System Specs to help.

Generally the smell of fried electronics and presence of smoke means a trip to a repair shop. It could also mean a new computer. Some of the parts involved could be the power supply, the motherboard, the graphics card if separate from the motherboard, the RAM modules, the CPU, just to name the major parts.

If I am in the wrong forum, please let me know.

About a month after I started using it, the Say the Time clock program I bought stopped launching the management menu when I right click the date/time field in the task tray (notification area).

Therefore, I can't use or edit the program.

Neither the touchpad nor the cordless mouse works.

Other than this problem, my computer works great. Every single item that's meant to be right clicked works for me.

Is there a way I can generate a log to show the software manufacturer (Provenio) that it's their problem and not mine?

I am a novice user but I can follow instructions.

However, I don't want to put my computer at risk if I make an entry error.

Or is it obvious that it's a software problem?

I've been using computers for 18 years and I've never had this problem until I bought this software and used it for about a month.

I just wanted a conclusive way of putting the ball back in the manufacturer's court.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Regards.

Answer:Say the Time Date/Time Field in Task Tray Doesn't Launch Menu

You can use VEW by Vino Rosso http://images.malwareremoval.com/vino/VEW.exe
and save it to your desktop

Double click it to start it Note: If running Windows Vista or Windows 7 you will need to right click the file and select Run as administrator and click Continue or Allow at the User Account Control Prompt.

Click the check boxes next to Application and System located under Select log to query on the upper left

Under Select type to list on the right click the boxes next to Error and Warning Note: If running Windows Vista or Windows 7 also click the box next to Critical (not XP).

Under Number or date of events select Number of events and type 20 in the box next to 1 to 20 and click Run
Once it finishes it will display a log file in notepad

Please copy and paste its entire contents into your next reply

Automatic date and time was incorrectly displayed so we changed it manually to correct date and time and power cycled the device off and on and the date and time again is incorrect.

Has anybody else experienced this problem?

I open Event Viewer - "Admin View" to see what Errors/Warnings are there and in the column - Date and Time only the date is showing. Same goes for all the other views.
The "Time" element seems to have completely disappeared.

Any idea where its gone........... and more importantly, how to get it back?

Thanks

Answer:Time stamp missing from Date and Time column - Event Viewer

Problem solved - but - I don't know why.

Solution:- I changed the Date/Time format from UK to US, opened Event Viewer and it was as it should be. Date & Time showing.
I then changed format back to UK, opened Event Viewer and , as above, the Time was back up.

If anybody knows what had happened I would be most interested.

My thanks to Bill............. from another site for helping me out with this one.

Hello everybody, Can help anyone to resolve my problem.I have an Thinkpad W520 (42823FG), BIOS 8BET60WW 1.4        When I disconect AC power and remove battery and connect again, I see this message on screen:"Real Time Clock Error - Check Date and Time settings, System CMOS Checksum badPress Esc to continue or F1 to enter Setup" Is this a system board problem or CMOS battery problem ? Thank you 

Answer:Real Time Clock Error - Check Date and Time settings, System CMOS Checksum bad

Hello and welcome,
 
It's probably (hopefully) just the CMOS battery.  The easiest way to find out is to just replace that battery.
 
Page 85 of the Hardware Maintenance Manual:

Here's an example of the battery.  I'm not recommending (or not) this vendor:

Hi,

I am running XP Home SP3 on an Asus 1005HA netbook

Every time I boot up I get a message to say that either I can press F1 to enter setup to set date/time or press F2 to load default values

If I choose F1 and enter the correct date/time and press F10 to save and exit - XP then starts up normally but the next time I boot up, the same problem occurs.

[If I select F2, then XP loads normally]

What can I do to fix this?

Thanks for any help in advance
 

Answer:Solved: CMOS Set date/time message every time I boot up

Your motherboard battery is dead. You can get a new one at any drug store for about $5.

I have a 4 year old computer that runs perfectly, except when I turn it off at night and then back on the next day, I loose a few hours on the time date at bottom of screen. I ajust each time I use it but the same thing happens each time I turn it off. Could it be the clock battery or ? My operating system is Windows XP Home
Thanks Lc
 

Answer:Windows XP time/date clock looses time after shut down.

Welcome to TSG...A bad CMOS battery will cause your machine to lose time. If the system is four years old, you're eligible for that issue...also, if the system has spent any lengthy amount of time (weeks or more) unplugged from AC power, it's more likely to happen.

Next reboot (after leaving it overnight), enter BIOS (setup) and see if the time there is slipping as well.

The battery itself (if that's what's bad) is cheap to replace...less than five bucks.

Please give us some specs on the hardware-make, model, etc.-and we can help you with battery replacement instructions.
