When the clock strikes 00:00:00, 001, 2000, Julian Date, will my computer think the year is 1900, 1700, 0000 A.D., or, perhaps 100?

One of mine thought it was 2000, until I shut it down and restarted. Then it thought it was 1980. Then I fixed it. Then it thought it was 2000 again. Then I shut it down again. Then I restarted it.

Guess what year it thought was then?

Mr. Cook;

PLEASE don't tell us that your "fix it" didn't fix it.

How did you "fix it"
