I have bought a Lenovo X230 Laptop from ebay and have tried to activate windows after installation, but got an error message - I have identified it as a date and time problem in the bios.
I logged in to the bios date and time - changed it to the correct date and time - saved the settings by pressing F10, but I still get a windows activation problem - meaning the bios is not accepting the date and time change. I even updated the bios but it is still not accepting the date and time change.
The Bios firmware number is: G2ETB3WW ( 2.73 ).
I wanted to ask if this is a hardware /motherboard problem or a CMOS battery problem ? - is there a method for confirming either ? - has any other X230 user experienced this and how did you solve it ?.
