Assuming you don't care about the milliseconds, drop 6 edit boxes corresponding to years, month, day, hour, minutes and seconds and a button on a form. Put the folowing code in the onclick event of the button

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
Var
 SysTime:TSystemTime;
begin
 FillChar(SysTime, SizeOf(SysTime), #0);      //initialize with 0
 With SysTime Do      //Store the data
 Begin
  SysTime.wYear:=StrToInt(Edit1.Text);
  SysTime.wMonth:=StrToInt(Edit2.Text);
  SysTime.wDay:=StrToInt(Edit3.Text);
  SysTime.wHour:=StrToInt(Edit4.Text);
  SysTime.wMinute:=StrToInt(Edit5.Text);
  SysTime.wSecond:=StrToInt(Edit6.Text);
 End;
 SetSystemTime(SysTime);
end;

NB : you can do exactly the oposite (from the system to your computer by reversing anything and using GetSytemDate instead of SetSytemTime

This code can´t establish the TIME, maybe there´ll be another alternative code.

Don't work?
I've forgot that it use UTC time...
Use GetLocalTime and SetLocalTime instead to work with your local time.
