Kevin,

Try a new battery, and then go into your systems bios (Motherboard) My H/P you access it by repeatedly kitting the F8 key at start-up, some others Ive worked on F8, Make sure you get the bios (basic input/output services) Try F1 first If the bios screen pops up arrow down to the time (you change it by the keypad and - then tab button to the minutes same thing, - .the box on the right will explain everything When done arrow right to the last tab, believe it's F10 to exit and save changes then enter, will let it boot into windows
