Check in the Bios on the PC health page(if you have one most OEM PC's do not) for the voltage reading, if you do not have a PC health page check in the Bios for the time if it is wrong(on a cold boot) the Battery is bad.

Hi,

First of all I suggest you to update your windows with latest Sp3 because Microsoft is soonly going to retire the support for Sp2.

And this problem is coming because you not having proper rights to change the timings.
I suggest you to logged in from administrator account and then try to change the time.
I am sure it will work.

If you have a Server/Client scenerio, means you have a domain name and this is just a client then this could be because of Group Policy settings which restricted you to doing so.
Contact your system administrator and asked him to login from his account and change the time.

Hope this will help you.

Let me know if issue occurs again.
