Go to start and type in system.msc in the run tab and hit enter, check to see if the windows time is running and set to automatic, if it is then you might have to replace the battery on your motherboard

Wireless capability is turned off but the button is on

Look for the wireless program in your systray, next to the clock (bottom right), and right click the icon and see if there is options there for switching the SOFTWARE on. You have switched the HARDWARE on, but the software for it is switched off. That is what I do for my Fujitsu Laptop (Do not know if the PC has the same programme, but here is hoping!) ;)

Set computer clock three hours later

Hi buffaloman...
To set your computer clock go to the time in the bottom right hand corner of your desktop screen.
Left click on the clock and a window will open, you will then click on "Date/Time Properties" and it will let you change the time of your computer clock.

Computer promptong either boot menu or bios setup when powering up

Sounds like you need to adjust your Bios, clock settings, choose the bios menu, and navigate to the general tab and change the time to the correct, it if does not keep time in the bios, then you must replace the CMOS battery on the mother board, you can usually find them at Best buy for about 5 buck.

Clock in computer will not maintain time and date

Yes it very probably is the CMOS battery, time is kept counting electric pulses, when the computer is turned on there is power and memory to do this, but when it is turned off it relays on the battery to keep this an some other settings, maybe you're receiving a warning at boot time. Check this guide for replacing such batteries:

Acer touchpad not responding

Look in the systray (next to your system clock) for a touchpad utility, as the touchpad may have been disabled there. Also look for a switch near the touchpad to disable/enable it also.
