CMOS CLOCK FALSE DATE ON MINI

Anyone know how I can correct the date segment of the CMOS. The time is fine in metric/military time but the day of the month is always tomorrow. It coincides with UTC but I use local time.
The date is grayed out to change the day. Only the month can be changed which is useless.

No instructions found on setting the CMOS on this netbook.

HP Mini netbook

Thanks.

Re: CMOS CLOCK FALSE DATE ON MINI

What type of computer do you have?
You may be required to set you CMOS to UTC and not local time. Linux and Unix run on UTC.

Re: CMOS CLOCK FALSE DATE ON MINI

Thanks for your response. It was the CMOS before the os/ is introduced that was false. I believe I just found the problem. The enter key was responding intermittently on CMOS selections.

After a re-boot it started to work.

FYI I run Linux and FreeBSD on this box. The only problem I have yet to solve is getting the mouse to work under FreeBSD in the user account. It works fine as root.

Again thanks for the quick response.
