I recently took apart my Asus U46E-BAL7 laptop and I had to disconnect the CMOS battery to get to the fan.
I put it back together successfully, but when Windows 7 boots up the date and time are wrong, as expected. Also a few programs, like Firefox, will fail to launch when I try to open them.
However, when I try to change the time in the date and time settings it doesn't let me. A message about daylight savings starts flashing in the window and I can't close the window, and task-manager won't start. I can't really do anything at all other that move the cursor around. The same thing happens when I try to do it in Safe Mode.
I've already tried to Google it, but no one seems to be having a similar issue.
Any ideas/suggestions on what's going on or how to fix it?
