Did you put a new CMOS battery in? "Changed" means you put another one in, not necessarily a new one.

After installing the battery...you must go into the BIOS/Setup...set the correct date/time...and save the changes made.

I've found that...if the dates are changed (erroneously) on new files installed, it can (among other things) prevent Windows from booting. Files get their dates from the system/CMOS clock.
