One of my friends has a problem with his computer.
Everytime he restarts his computer, the time of the computer becomes 0:00, January 1, 2003.
What do you think might be the cause?

This is usually caused by an empty cmos battery. Try to replace it. It should be on the mainboard and looks like a watch battery, only bigger.

Thanks. Then he has to replace it.
How long can the battery last? He bougt his computer two years ago.
I guess it's of poor quality.

normally it should last for a longer time (one i have in an pc is 10 years old and still kicking). This is also related to the pc being connected to power, then it lasts longer as it would do if you unplug it.

AFAIK, it draws power from the AC (on newer pcs) when it's plugged in. This should be plausible since the psu delivers power through the +5VSB line even if the pc is shutdown.
