Sometimes things work in mysterious ways, including computers. You might be right.
I didn't mean to appear negative. I intended the last statement as a joke, and by no means was it supposed to be interpreted as sarcasm instead.
It doesn't hurt to try. I have engaged the warp drive to hyperspeed, faster than warp 9 speed, but the reactor core seems to be overloading. There is a problem with the core. This is the Captain to the bridge, disengage the warp drive. Put all systems to auxilary power. Kirk out.
Stardate 3120, we have neared a M class planet, and our core has suddenly malfuncioned. All systems have been taken offline at this time.
Spock, you there?
"Having the wrong date on the computer can affect many things."
It's possible, but only the Bios, date & time, and security programs as far as I know
Yes, that is a good idea, think I'll run it through with a security program. Couldn't hurt.
And yes, you never know, it could be the issue, though I doubt it.
Here is the situation:
--The computer has been missing its CMOS for a long time
--The computer has NEVER had these kind of problems until just RECENTLY
--I have never seen a computer be "unable" to run an OS without a CMOS
--I have never seen a computer be "unable" to boot without a CMOS
*chew on this for a minute and see if it gives you any ideas
LIVE LONG AND PROSPER
