Do this carefully, and before touching anything inside your computer case, touch the metal outside of the case to discharge any static that might have built up. Look inside for the cmos battery, and there should be a jumper in the general proximity. Some motherboards you just need to pull it off and move it over a little and then move it back. Some, you need to move it over and turn the computer on and then put it back. Try both, and it should work.
