1. Connect the keyboard to your computer if it is not already connected.
2. Click the time and date at the bottom, right corner of your computer.
3. Click the "Change date and time settings" link and then click the "Change date and time" button.
4. Enter the time you want to display on your clock and click "OK" to save and close the window.
5. Click "Apply" and "OK" to save and close the "Date and Time" window. The time on the computer and on your keyboard should reflect the changes.

Let me know if the time and date display on your keyboard now.

Also, is the temperature displaying on the keyboard? and has the date and time ever displayed correctly on the keyboard while using Windows 7?

It still isn't showing time and date. It shows temperature, and did show the date and time until I changed the batteries.
Expert:  Josh replied 5 years ago.

Please take out the batteries for 5 seconds and then replace them back into the keyboard.
