Almost every time I turn my computer on the time and/or date is incorrect. Can anyone tell me why this is and what I have to do to correct the situation

The motherboard battery does more than keep the time. Replace it fairly quickly before important things in the BIOS are in danger of being lost.

Thanks for all your advice. I will replace the battery as soon as I can and see what happens.

I would agree with the others, it sounds like the battery.

However, don't forget to make a note of the BIOS settings if you are not that familiar with setting up the BIOS yourself as removing the battery may clear the CMOS as well. If you are quick you should find that this will not be a problem but don't take the old battery out until you are ready to install straight away the new one. This will not guarantee that you will not loose any settings but will reduce the chances.
