[lubuntu-users] lenovo_wmi or acer_wmi for Lenovo laptops (64bit)

I'm now convinced the system clock resetting to London (UTC) time is not a CMOS battery problem.

Other people are complaining about this Insider Preview problem on the Microsoft Feedback Hub.

 Thank you!
 Finding the modules was the key to answering my questions.
 I found the same two modules (acer-wmi.ko and hid-lenovo.ko)
 and  lsmod | egrep  'wmi | lenovo'  gives:

 wmi                    24576  2 wmi_bmof,ideapad_laptop

 In answer to your questions:
 I used unetbootin to create a live Lubuntu 16.04.3 on flash drive.
 I assumed that unetbootin checked the md5sum.
 I  executed Lubuntu "Software Updater".

 I decided to try re-installing.
 I am now on release 4.13.0-26-generic, which is the same release that failed previously.
 This time I see no problems.

 My conclusion is that I previously had a corrupted kernel.

 The clock gives London time on Windows and Los Angeles time on Lubuntu.
I'll check cmos battery.
