The computer time is been changing automatically possibly because the motherboard battery may be bad Carefully open up the computer (remember to unplug from the wall first) and locate a quarter size metal disk on your motherboard (the biggest board inside) Then carefully pry up the old battery and replace it with a new one This should solve your time/date problem.
