Date And Time

Just wondering if anyone else is having the same problem as me. In the last couple of weeks - after some updates my clock and date do not work correctly. On switch on the date is still from the previous day and the time is at the time I switched off. Have been through all the help and I reset it daily. It does not immediately restore to the day date as previously on switch on. I did wonder if there is a battery somewhere on my PC but can see nothing vaguely like one anywhere. I am still running XP. Thought it maybe one of the updates which has triggered the problem. Any ideas out there.

Hawkeye01. See a thread I did a while ago in the Computer Forum about my ASUS Laptop with similar problems.

Battery would be a likely suspect.

Round silver thing about the size of a shilling.
