The system date will get usually re-set to 1980 if your computer battery is 
dying... I don't know about Y2K (which turned out to be Y-OK). You can 
easily check your system date with Windows by double clicking the time in 
the lower right corner. If it doesn't say January 2000 with the correct 
time, you can fix it here. If it reverts back to 1980 when you re-boot, 
it's probably a dying system battery. In this case you need to get it 
replaced as soon as possible or you'll have your computer BIOS settings 
messed up every time you shut your system off.
