NORFOLK, Va. (AP) -- Computer problems have affected operations at several Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles branches.
Media outlets report that the problem halted operations at two branches in Norfolk and Smithfield on Monday.
DMV spokeswoman Melanie Stokes says other branches across Virginia reported issues such as slow computer logins.
Stokes says DMV officials believe the problem is related to the date changing from 2010 to 2011.
A different problem closed a branch inside the DMV's headquarters in Richmond on Monday. Stokes says water from a burst pipe damaged some equipment inside the customer service center.
