I bought an HP laptop like 10 days ago. At start I didn't notice but the laptop keeps loosing time if it's not connected to the AC power or it's not turned on. If it's turned off for 2-3 hours and the power is removed, the date goes back to January 1, 2004 (00). Although I have set it many times from the BIOS and also flashed the BIOS, it didn't do anything good. When I contacted HP, they told me that a slot might having some problems. I do not remember the name of the slot, something like "artillry" .. arggh I forgot it. Anyone know what the issue might be? It's not CMOS battery issue because I am not getting any CMOS battery warning.
HP asked to me to visit a service center and get it repaired. But even the nearest one cannot be considered as near.
Please let me know if anyone of you is aware of any fix.
It's an HP Pavilion ze4900 laptop.
