the first thing is to make sure there aren't disks in any drive. If this is a somewhat older PC, the motherboard battery probably needs replaced. With the side of the case off and the computer unplugged, you'll see a coin-sized silver battery. GENTLY pry it up and slide it out. In all likelihood, it's a CR 2032 cell battery. Drugstores even sell them. When you turn the machine back on, you will have to enter the BIOS and reset the date and time, and maybe the boot device order

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
