    All of a sudden, my macbook pro is acting weird. Every time I boot it up, the clock setting is turned back to 2001 and it asks me my wireless password which I choose to be remembered. When I open websites on google chrome, firefox and safari, security certificate things pop up. I reset PRAM and NVRAM but no help.

    So what happened? Could you tell me some solutions you might have? Thanks

    I would try restoring it from a most recent backup in which you don't remember these anomalies happening to your MBP.

    Could be the internal logic board battery has failed. If that goes and your main battery has also failed then it cant keep track of time.

    Yup.. I'd guess if it's 3+ years old that's quite likely.. If it's NEWER that would be kinda Odd.. I think.. :confused:

    If you're using Lion, this (and several other Wi-Fi related issues) is a common bug with all Lion iterations, all up to the latest one. I'm hoping they'll address this in the 10.7.3 update.
