            Hi Brenda
            Sounds as if it is your back up battery on the motherboard needs replacing.
            It is designed to keep all your settings when the PC is turned off.
            It is a small flat battery, about 2cm in diameter, they normally go flat after a few years.
            They are not expensive – just a couple of Euros and easy to fit if you are even slightly competant.
            If not, there are plenty of people that could lend you a hand.
