Computer hangs when trying to modify date or time in M5A78L-M PLUS/USB3 BIOS

I have an interesting problem I've never run into before. I have a new M5A78L-M PLUS/USB3 motherboard with an AMD FX-8350 CPU and 8G memory. After booting the computer and getting into the BIOS and trying to change the time or date, the computer hangs after enter the 1st set of digits. I cannot tab or arrow out of the field. The mouse no longer works. I have to reset the computer. This happens every time. I can navigate to other tabs and change the boot order, etc. I've checked and I do have the latest BIOS version.

Any ideas?

Maybe ignore that function. Date and Time is set in Windows and that is the best place to set it. So make whatever other changes to BIOS, save, exit, restart and then set Date, Time and Time Zone in Control Panel, Date and Time. This is the correct approach for this function, not BIOS.

That's what I ended up doing. Windows did set the date/time as evident when I went back into the BIOS later. Strange, but I'll leave well-enough alone.
