Greetings. My boot procedure has been producing the same error just about
every time. Basically, my clock settings get thrown back to 12:00am to a date
in 2003. An offshoot of this is that my Norton virus does not load.

What can I do

More about : set problem clock reset boot

You should be able to reset the clock settings in your BIOS (press F2 or DEL
or somthing as soon as you start the computer)

If the clock resets the next time you try to boot, that probably means that
the CMOS Battery (i think that's what it's called) could be dead. This
battery is supposed to last a long time though, and would seem quite
unlikely. So you should try my info first then see what an MVP says (they're
so smart!)

Jayso - I'm not sure if I was clear, but this happens just about everytime
that I start my computer. I've fixed it before during the BIOS boot routine
(F2), but that means nothing in the long term, as it happens every time I
start the machine.

that means you might possibly have to change your cmos battery

But you might wanna wait for an MVP or something cos cmos batteries last for
a long time
