  • This is strictly a problem with your computer hardware.  The date and time are store in a component called a CMOS and it is powered by a little battery about the size of a U.S. quarter (25¢) piece.  You must find out how to replace the battery and do so.  Windows cannot recharge or replace the battery.  It takes a human to replace it.
