- Sony Vaio - Clock Losing Time!

I have a Sony Vaio PCG-R600HMP which has clock problems.
It loses hours and hours a day on the clock. The clock doesn't run slow,
instead it seems to jump backwards at times - by tens of minutes or even
hours in one fell swoop.
I have replaced the CMOS battery, and reinstalled XP Pro. The laptop is
running 24x7 from the mains.
Re: Sony Vaio - Clock Losing Time!
I have the same problem with my machine. It can lose hours at a time, but
the misalignment is only associated with the display -- the widget in the
system tray. The CMOS clock is still well-aligned and I just need to
refresh the clock daemon manually on occasions.
Having said that, this only happens to me when I run heavy computation on my
machine. Sometimes the memory gets used up entirely in the process. Are you
doing anything resource-consuming?
