Re: I have to keep resetting the clock
The cmos battery inside the PC has run out, all you have to do is remove the side panel and look inside at the "motherboard" you will see a battery there, take it out and replace it with a new one, put the side panel back on and set the time and date and it should keep time from then on

Your CMOS battery ran out of charge. You may have to replace it. (Note: You can check whether it has no charge by using a Muti-meter or your mouth).
You are Synchronizing the Clock from a Different Time Zone. Double click on Time panel in the task bar. Go to Time Zones and check. Check the Internet Time to check whether you Synchronize with a proper Time Server. (Note: You can try to start the PC without internet and check whether the time is changing)
You have installed a Patch / Crack to a Software and it resets your Timer. Probably a Patch to an Anti Virus Software, Game or any other Application. You may have to Remove it to keep the clock Steady if it matters you.
If anything gives negative results what you have to do is to check the Event Viewer for any System/ Application related errors.
To get the Event Viewer:
Start -> Run (or hit Win key + R) and type in Eventvwr.msc and hit Enter key.
Go to System and Application and Sort them using Date / Time (usually it is the default). Then watch for errors related with the System Clock. (Note: errors are in the color of Red with an X mark. Warnings are Yellow with an ! mark).

check for the clock speed of your old ram....
check for the type(DDR/DDR2/DDR3)..
check your motherboard for capability to adapt greater capacity of new RAM....
buy a new one with same specifications but of greater capacity....
replace it with the old one or you can plug it to the empty slot if found any on the board....
The internal clock of the desktop and the processor is run by an internal CMOS battery if you need to replace it you need to open the CPU and on the motherboard
If your computer is losing its time or date settings, or you are receiving a message CMOS Read Error, CMOS checksum error, or CMOS Battery Failure, first attempt to leave the computer on for 24 hours. In some cases this can charge the battery and resolve your issue. This often resolves CMOS battery related issues when a computer has been left off for several months. If this does not resolve your issue follow the below steps.
Open the computer case and find the battery on the computer motherboard, verify that it will be accessible and that it can be removed. Most computers today use a coin cell CMOS battery as shown in the image to the right. If you are unable to locate your CMOS battery you will need to refer to your motherboard or computer documentation and/or contact your computer manufacturer for additional assistance in locating it.

Computers have an internal battery on the motherboard that helpd the board retain certain data when the computer is off. If the battery is low or dead it will cause this problem. The easiest way to replace the battery is to open the side of the computer when it is off and remove the battery from the battery holder on the motherboard. The battery looks just like a watch battery. Replace it with the same kind of battery (available at most drug stores) once you have replaced it turn on your computer and reset your clock.
To remove the BIOS password from a desktop. All you need to do is open the tower. Locate the CMOS battery. Remove it. Wait for a minute then put it back in. That would resolve the problem. However, that would also reset the BIOS settings back to factory settings. Meaning the dates will have to changed back to current. Depending on the BIOS, either press F2 or DEL then change the date there. Please let me know if this would resolve your issue.
you may check and see if it's set to the "internet time" -> "automatically syncronize with an internet time server", if there you have a wrong server, then it'll reset your time wrong, or if you have another timezone set in windows, than it'll update to that timezone.
secondly, if it's a hardware related issue, than it can be the battery
