Hi all,

 

Hopefully I've posted this in the correct forum, I'm having a slight problem with my computer, every time I boot up it up, it keeps resetting the clock, I've reset it numerous times, also I can't connect to the internet.

 

I've checked my internet settings, and there's a clear signal, and the router is working fine.

 

Any advice and help would be appreciated

Hi ta_ammy :)

Usually, if the clock in Windows resets itself everytime you restart your computer, it means that the time in your BIOS isn't well set. So I suggest you to go in it and adjust the date/time. If the BIOS also looses its date/time on reboot, it means that the CMOS battery needs to be changed.

Erm I know this is a daft question but the BIOS would be the option that comes up if I select "F8" when my computer is loading up, i just wanna be sure before I start playing with stuff

The Function (or key) used to access the BIOS depends on your computer/laptop manufacturer (or if it's a custom built, motherboard manufacturer). Do you know your computer/laptop brand and model?
