    @Prema

    Not sure you have done anything past what I have posted below from another forum section for the P650SG but if you have let me know and will donate. Hope you are well!

    Hi all,

    Wanting to update to the lastest and greatest for my trusty P650SG. Would like to have Prema's but seems a challenge to find. I have P6xxSG_37_39_PM_v2 for BIOS and vBIOS. I haven't flashed from Sager's 1.03.03 but now past warranty and trying to get more life from my laptop. Tried to contact Prema direct but seems a bit beyond my abilities or my understanding as premamod.com gets me no where. Prema.. if you see this.. willing to donate. Trying to get to 1.05.01 for bios and vbios with your mods. Please get with me if you can.

    Thanks

    I was resetting my Prema BIOS with FN+D+Power method, I did that about 3 or 4 times when I'm trying to OC my RAM, then I realize that my time in windows always not accurate, I did many troubleshooting for 2 days to solve the time issue with no success, until I changed the CMOS battery,,,,,
    So my question is: is this FN+D+Power method can effect the battery somehow, or it's just a bad luck that the battery needs to be replaced in the same that moment.???!!!

    Yeah the time becomes out of sync, and it also messes up the notification area icons IME, when you do a CMOS reset. Did you try setting Windows to automatically sync with Internet time?

    I did everything you can imagine from Windows and BIOS side, even changing the BIOS battery, nothing works. I don\t like to reinstall Windows before I make sure it can fix the problem, it's a nightmare.

    Try disabling WIndows Time service in services.msc and restart your PC. While you're at it, please set the time in BIOS and see if it helps solving the issue.

    If you are using internet time to sync your machine and it keeps going funky, your ISP's dns server may be having issues (randomly blocking access to various websites). In the US you can always change the 2 dns servers to 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 (Google dns) and see if that helps. Otherwise, you can always change time servers in Windows. Forgive me if this has already been suggested. :)

    I did that already, once I log in windows the time start to be less than what it should be, once I sync with windows time server it correct the problem, then after hour or more the problem happen again.
