My Dell Latitude 10 ST2e tablet periodically keeps losing the correct date and time. It goes forward either one day to the maximum of 10 days. I updated the BIOS to latest hoping that would fix it but it doesn't. It appears it might have started after Windows 8.1 update but I can't be certain. Is this a known problem with this unit? Anyone else having this problem?
I have the exact same problem. When it began, I was still under warranty. Dell tried three times to fix this and none have worked. First, they sent a technician to change the CMOS battery. Next, they had me send the unit to the factory for diagnostics and repair. Neither of those solutions lasted. I thought that perhaps there was something peculiar to the particular unit so I nagged until I got a refurbished machine as a replacement. Guess what? The problem returned. Now that I'm out of warranty, I'm not sure what, if any, support I can get.
Dell Support Confirm that Latitude 10 st2 Tablets do not support Windows 8.1 and should be reverted to Windows 8, the date and time issue does show itself until after the upgrade to 8.1. As of 22nd May 2014 there is no Fix. It's Live with it or revert to Win 8 seems to be there response.
Like your thinking Tim, more of a work around; but elegant!,
We changed the registry machine on our engineering Tablet and can see no reason why it won't cover up the issue so have informed our customer base, many thanks.
