Just after you turn on your PC ( or laptop ) then start hiting Keys like DELETE or F10 or F8 or F2.

Actually exactly which key you should press is dependent on which machine you are using.

But usually its among these keys which I've described. So I hope you will get BIOS screen by htting any of these keys.

Rate the solution if it was helpful to you...

With Regrards,

How do you set the system date and time


To set the Date & Time, go into the BIOS setting - date 7 time.
When you set the Date & Time and you get this error again when you next boot up your computer, then most likely you have a flat BIOS battery.
Then replace this battery, it could be a coin size battery - 3 volt lithium battery type CR2032. and then go into the BIOS setting and set the Date & Time.

Set the time and date in the bios on toshiba mod 2400-s201


Setting the Date and Time in the BIOS should be on the first tab, when you access the BIOS from boot screen.

Otherwise, use Windows to set the date and time, by clicking on the clock in the lower right corner of the screen.

Date time not set


When you change the date and Time to the correct Date and Time and when you next boot up the laptop the Date and Time is lost. Then this is caused by a flat BIOS battery which cannot keep these setting stored in the BIOS.
Replace the BIOS battery then go into the BIOS setting to set the Date and Time and this will fix your problem.

My system time and date is not set


Go into the BIOS settings then to the Date and Time and set the Date and Time, Save the settings and Exit.
IWhen you boot up later and the Date and Time is incorrect then the BIOS battery is flat and a new replacement battery is needed. The BIOS battery keeps the laptop's configuration plus the Date and Time settings unless the battery is flat.

Laptop date and time setting get disturbed automatically when i reboot my laptop


When you boot up and the Date & Time is wrong then you correct the Date & Time, then when you shut down and boot up again the Date and Time has changed. This is an indication that the BIOS battery is flat and you need to replace the BIOS battery. Install a new BIOS battery, go into the BIOS setting and set the Date & Time etc. and the new battery will keep your settings stored in the BIOS.
