mervyn100 please let us all know if the time and date in the bios and Windows 7 is corrected and staying corrected.

Always use a new bios, motherboard battery.

This needs to be correct before we jump into other problems solving.

Please keep us informed.

When I go into change date and time and update time settings it says there is an error and will not update.

"An error occurred while windows was synchronizing"

Synchronizing means it's trying to use the time server online. If you have no internet that will happen. Try turning off Windows Time in Services. You can open services by
Winkey r
then type in
services.msc

If your CMOS battery is dead it should still let you set the time. It will just be wrong if you shut the machine down since the battery can't keep up anymore.

Okay I and others I suggested to set time and date manually.
Go to your time and date lower right and right tick it.
Then tick on adjust time and date.
Then tick on Change Date and Time.
Now manually change the date and time and tick OK.
Now go to internet time and then change settings and choose Time. windows.com and tick Update.

Have you changed your motherboard battery?

Have you checked and set the correct time and date in bios?

Right I have done that and everything seems fine? Is there any other checks I can do? The computer has been unused for 10 days? It is only 18 months old so didn't think any battery could have went?

It shouldn't need a battery unless you were unlucky and the battery is defective. You could just leave it running 24/7 for a few days and see if the problem goes away. Maybe the battery will recharge.

I have had new batteries that were no good.
Is the bios time and date correct now Y/N?

Is the Windows 7 time and date correct now Y/N.

Can you check Windows 7 Updates and get a answer from Microsoft Y/N.

Change the battery. 18 months old is plenty old enough to fail. I am done with this thread, by not changing the battery you are creating work for everyone and wasting our time. (Pun intended). We have told you what to do, you asked for help and we have advised you to replace the battery, set the time and date and your issues will go away. How hard can this be. Perhaps you prefer to take the tower in for service and be charged 100 quid for a 5 quid battery.........

See my avatar. How long did the PC sit on the vendor's shelf before you got it discharging the battery, $1,39 USD.
