Very often the date/time is maintained by a very small watch type battery built into the main board - there is no opportunity to replace this.

When i shut off computer, time and date reverts to 2003 , new battery etc when turned back on msi ms 7235 ver 1.1

There is not a lot of info, but I'm gonna go with the choice of a laptop, since you say "new battery". There is also another battery in the motherboard, also, you need to set the date from within the BIOS, if you don't set it from the BIOS it will always revert back to the date of manufacture.

Can't get the Date off the Pictures

First you have to go to the set up menu and set the correct time and date, then you can go back to the settings and select OFF for time and date. If you do not set the correct time and date , that default date stays in the picture.
