I have several applications that will not run correctly because my school laptop has the wrong date and time. I can not synchronize it to the internet because this requires admin rights. I can't have my school do it because it's summer vacation. Any ideas?
Sometimes you can set the clock manually by entering the computer's BIOS setup program when it boots (usually by hitting a special key like DELETE or F2).
From the "Start" button, choose "Run" and enter "cmd.exe" in the text box. On the CMD type:
It will show you the current date of the computer and should allow you to type a new date on this format: mm-dd-yy, just type it and press Enter
To change the time its the same but instead of the command date type:
And type hh:mm:ss
That should do it.. im not 100% sure it works without admin rights... but give it a try
