Check your time in BIOS. I would also replace the CMOS battery.

Windows Time Service

If you’re still pleasing problems altering the date and time in Windows, go to Control Panel, Administrative Tools and click on Services. Scroll down to Windows Time and right-click and select Properties. Click on the Log On tab besides make sure it’s fixed to this account – Local Service.

he password fields should automatically be full in, so here is no need to kind in any passwords. Go ahead and restart the computer and realize what happens.

Hello,
Thank you for the help.
I have followed the step for Windows time service, restarted the computer, I am still showing 29/11/2008.

I am not sure how to change the time on the BIOS.

Thank you

The BIOS clock...controls the clock on your desktop.  Ditto for the date.  After you have changed any of these...you must save the changes in the BIOS, usually hitting F10 will do this and force a reboot with the changes.

 

To change the time in the BIOS...follow the instructions on the main page of the BIOS for making changes to any field.  System manufacturer and model?  Motherboard maker and model if not an OEM (HP, Lenovo, Dell, etc.) system?

 

How To Set BIOS Clock
