I have a Toshiba Satellite PSAA8U that loses time consistently and I'd like to find out if there's anything I can do to fix the problem. I reset the time, but it just drifts off again within a matter of an hour or two. Does anyone have any ideas regarding what I can try? thanks!

Hello 1fierygirl;
Toshiba Satellite A105, about five years old?
It might be the small battery onboard can't hold a charge and needs replacing.
Sometimes called the CMOS or RTC (real time clock) battery.

How stuff works: Why does my computer need a battery?
