    My pc doesn't start sometimes and when it does I get an error talking about wrong date input. I thought it was the cmos battery, but I changed it and I still get the message. any ideas?

    Did you go into the BIOS and set the clock to the right date? When I clear the CMOS, it sets the date back to Jan. 1, 2000.

    Did you save your settings when getting out of the BIOS?

    Funny you should mention that. An hour ago, I was working on my backup computer, and it restarted, and I got an BIOS checksum error, and it starting looking for drives that held the BIOS recovery. The computer went dead, after that.

    I guess the answer is, the BIOS can go bad on you, but I am not sure, in your case.
