Internal battery needs replacing. If it is a desktop PC it is usually fairly simple, just remove the CR2032 cell battery from the motherboard and replace with a new one. Laptops can be more difficult as the battery may be soldered to the motherboard, usually requires the laptop going to the repair shop.

Click on the Date at your taskbar. When the analog clock shows up, click change date and time settings. A popup windows will appear.

But if you restart the laptop or pc and you date reverse back to previous one, then you need to change the CMOS Battery inside.

Generally, the battery is the flat one used in the watch but the size might be different for some model.

I can't surf is a certificate error

Certificate errors are typically caused by an incorrect date or time in your operating system's calendar.
To set your Date and Time Properties in Windows, please follow these steps:
  1. Double-click the time in your taskbar to open the Date & Time Properties menu.
  2. From the Date & Time tab, verify that the appropriate month, day, and year are selected.
  3. Click Apply to save any changes you make.
  4. From the Time Zone tab, verify that your time zone is selected. If the time zone in which you are located is not displayed, select your time zone from the drop-down menu.
  5. Verify that the box beside Automatically adjust clock for daylight savings changes is checked.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Close all your browser windows, restart your browser and try logging in again.

MacBook locked up, won?t close down

The first thing to try is this: It is a keyboard shortcut to shut down a mac laptop. Press the control key (ctrl) at the bottom and press the eject button at the same time (top button all the way to the right which looks like an arrow pointing up with a line under it). This should bring up a window asking if you want to restart, sleep,cancel or shut down. Click Yes to shutdown! If this does not work, here is the second option. Press the power button down on the upper right side,and just hold it down until the computor turns off. I have done this many times with my own computor when it has crashed with no ill effects, I have heard from Apple that it is not good for your computor and can cause problems, so I would only do this if the keyboard short cut does not work Good luck and if you find this helpful please comment!.

My laptop wont boot up and just resets itself help!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Try this turn off.Restart hold F8 Key. A menu will ask How to start, Chose Safe Mode.
If unit starts you will have limited use to find out what is causing the issue.Go to start click it then chose system restore and chose a date that unit started(you will lose some programs that were installed after that date but not data in files.If you don't want to use system restore you can try to 1.remove a new program that you installed and is causing the problem.2 disconect any new start and click control panel,system,device manager,hardware and look for anything yellow, expand if you can to see any yellow ! marks thats your problem.Remove uninstall unless you need it.Restart,I have used System Restore many times it will fix your PC.Good Luck
