You can change the time by entering the bios screen.
Del key or F2 key held while the machine boots up.
Laptop may have a Fn or Function key that you would select to enter the bios.
Usually the time is on the first screen but can vary depending on the bios software. If your running a windows operating system you can Right click on the date/time in the menu bar and select adjust date/time from the selection window.
If you set this and the PC continues to loose time.
The Cmos battery may need to be replaced.
Good luck , hope this helps.

Assuming you don't have a virus, the laptop's internal (CMOS) battery may be bad. Apart from keeping the time current, it holds onto your machines bootlog. If the machine starts up in Safe Mode, it would likely be the CMOS battery that's bad.

When I start my Lenovo T 60 it show check date and time after that it show Key picture,thank

You get this message if your Laptop (CMOS/configuration) Date is really outdated and wrong: check and change your Laptop Configuration setting for Date and Time. Also check your Windows Date/Time.
If the date/time you enter is not maintained properly, especially after you switch off the laptop, then you have a bad backup CMOS battery that needs to be replaced.

Hope it helps.

The time on my computer is always wrong. I change it and the minute my screesaver comes on it is wrong again. I think its the cmos battery. I need to know where it is in my pcg-grz660 and...

When you first turn on the machine do you get a message about it reverting to default bios settings? If not I doubt its the CMOS it could be any sort of malware messing with your time settings, especially as you say it happens when the screensaver comes on.
When a CMOS battery starts to go you will notice a change in the bios long before the time goes.
