It sounds like the coin-battery on your motherboard is bad so the motherboard forgets what time it is and what drives you have attached.

Replace the battery and you should be fine. It looks like a small coin on the motherboard.

My desk top computer has booting problem

The F1 or F2 takes you into the BIOS setting.
The problem could be a flat BIOS battery and the Date & Time needs to be set to the current date & time.
Replacing the BIOS battery with a new one will fix this problem. When you insert the new battery go into the BIOS setting and set the Date & Time.

try to boot and when it asks to set the time and date F1 to go to the BIOS settings and in there save like it is with F10..and enter ..will start anyway and you will set the time in windows..
or ...go to bios directly by pressing F10 if it is a HP computer or ..F2 for any other laptop ..and in there on the time settings just set the time and the date from the arrows and enter ..
if you have other problems and you opened it will have to remove the Bios battery to default it to the factory settings ..this will eliminate any passwords that might had kept you out of bios...if you do not see the battery ..remove the wireless card and see if it is under it ..

Bios date and time problem

You need to replace the cmos battery in your computer. Theu are usually Cr2032 batteries which you should be able to pick up for about £1.

unplug your computer and open the case.
When you look at the motherboard you should be able to easily locate the cmos battery cliped onto the mobo.
Take the old battery out and insert the new one.
put the case back on and plug the pc into the mains again.
You will need to re-enter the date etc the next time you boot up, but the settings should be retained after that.

Bios setup problem at booting.

Make sure the BIOS Configuration Jumper is in the 'Normal' position (pins 1 and 2) and not in the Config position (pins 2 and 3). It is located near the battery at the corner of the board. The Manual and Config information can be found here.

My computer went back to older clock date as 1610

try starting your computer in safe mode and see if you can do anything productive there, like scanning for viruses or spyware. also check if you can do the following:
CTRL+ALT+DEL (open task manager)
goto Start>Run>Regedit (open registry editor)
goto Start>Control Panel>Display>Properties (change display settings)
right click on clock at tray and change the current time to correct settings

if you cannot do any of these activities, then your computer may probably been compromised by a virus or malware.
