I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Have you adjusted the time using Windows?

Have you connected to the Internet?

There is also the possibility that the battery hasn't been inserted correctly (please check) or that the battery itself is dud (consider buying another battery from a different source).

Dumb mistake -- and something you all can suggest in response to this problem in the future.
