Hi, I would like to know why the date and hour setting don't remain working
continuously without having to set the every time one turn on the pc.
When the pc is turned off the date and hour seem to stop working so that
when I turn it on they're wrong and have one day's delay.
Furthermore when I try to update them through internet the most of the times
it fails.
W98SE doen't have any problem with this issue.
I have Windows XP PRO, English version.

This is usually a sign the CMOS battery failing. Check your PC
documentation with regard to this and for proper replacement. The battery
is inexpensive and usually pretty easy to replace.

While it could be the battery as stated, I had the same exact problem on my
laptop with windows xp home a month ago. The time kept getting off and when I
would try and update it from the internet, it failed. After about a week, it
started working just fine and has been ever since. I have no idea what the
problem was but it fixed itself.

You could also try a BIOS update for your motherboard.

I doubt seriously this is a BIOS update issue and if the CMOS battery is the
source of the issue, not only will a BIOS update not fix the issue, it's a
rather drastic and dangerous approach to something that is relatively simple
to resolve.

Well of course if the CMOS battery was the problem the BIOS would not have to
be updated. But if the CMOS is not the issue the BIOS would be a good thing
to look into. Depending on the motherboard you can even get BIOS updates that
are flashable within windows, so no floppy disk hassle.

Although a BIOS upgrade normally goes well, it is not without
danger. If something goes wrong while the upgrade is an progress
(for example, a lapse in power) you can be left with no BIOS at
all, and an unbootable computer.

Do a BIOS upgrade if you need to--because you are having a
problem that the new version is known to fix--not just because
one is available.
