I think you need to change your cmos battery. The instructions recommend an anti static wrist strap, It is the correct way but i have changed without but that was my choice.a very common battery is A coin-cell battery (CR2032)

To replace the CMOS battery, follow these steps:

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage components. Perform the procedures described here only at an ESD workstation using an antistatic wrist strap and a conductive foam pad. If such a station is not available, you can provide some ESD protection by wearing an antistatic wrist strap and attaching it to a metal part of the computer chassis.
Turn off all peripheral devices connected to the computer. Disconnect the computer's power cord from the ac power source (wall outlet or power adapter).
Remove the computer cover.
Locate the battery on the board.
With a medium flat-bladed screwdriver, gently pry the battery free from its connector. Note the orientation of the "+" and "-" on the battery.
Install the new battery in the connector, orienting the "+" and "-" correctly.
Replace the computer cover.

hope this helps please rate :)

Losing time settings


When it lose time settings? When you gets connected with internet or power off your PC?

If it is case of power off your PC, then it's all about your CMOS battery of your motherboard. It looks like a small button type battery. Generally it supplies power to PC clock when your PC is turned off or power off. BIOS settings also gets power form this battery. You have to change it if this is the reason. It takes little price.
To change CMOS battery please read:

If it happens in case of When connected with Internet, It changes date and time automatically if internet time zone selected with "automatically synchronize with an Internet time server".
To deactivate it like windows xp ( go to control panel, select date and time properties, select Internet Time tab and unmarked "Automatically synchronize with an internet time server" check box.
I am adding a image of that. 6_25_2012_9_15_44_am.jpg
Click apply and ok to save changes. Now your date and time will not be changed.

AcerPower F1 desktop boots fine after about 10


More likely it's from overheating; if it would be from the power supply ithe shutdown would be more random.
But it could also be a malware infection - especially if it happens EXACTLY after the same amount of time . Check what processes are active just before shutdown .

Acerpowerfh keeps turning on and off rebooting why?


it does sound like a boot virus problem. you need to boot into system restore. to boot from the restore partition you need to switch on your pc and repeatedly press either F10, F11, Alt+F10, or Alt+F11. you do this until you see the system restore starts. you will be able to fix windows, or you can do a desturctive restore and restore your pc back to factory settings, but you'll loose your photos and anything saved on the hard drive.

Boot your PC into "Safe Mode" (tapping the F8 key on boot to get to the option) and run a full/complete Virus scan with Anti Virus with up to date virus definitions and see what that yields.

My computer went back to older clock date as 1610


try starting your computer in safe mode and see if you can do anything productive there, like scanning for viruses or spyware. also check if you can do the following:
CTRL+ALT+DEL (open task manager)
goto Start>Run>Regedit (open registry editor)
goto Start>Control Panel>Display>Properties (change display settings)
right click on clock at tray and change the current time to correct settings

if you cannot do any of these activities, then your computer may probably been compromised by a virus or malware.
