Ever time I power on my PB it tells me that the date is set before March 2001 and that in need to change it because it might effect some programs and every time i have to go in to preferences and reset my time and date from march 1969 to the current date, anywho does anyone know what might cause this and how to fix it?

Sounds like the Pram battery needs replaced.
