My mum's laptop is not storing the date and time, I understand this is most likely because of the cmos battery being dead on the mainboard and needs to be replaced but I was wondering in the mean time is there a console command or software I could use on boot up to automatically set or synchronize the time to? ( PLEASE NOTE - Date is defaulted at 01/01/2005 and will not sync when using the date and time GUI in windows xp unless I manually change it to near today's date).

Thanks, Rob.

Why don't you give us the make and model number of your mom's laptop?
