I am trying to change the system date on my computer but I am running a Legacy Bios instead of UEFI. Is there a way to access those setting just to change the system date? I am needing it to show newer than it is for a computer test so I am able to work at home.

Entering System Setup
1. Turn on (or restart) your computer.
2. When the DELL™ logo is displayed, you must watch for the F12 prompt to appear.
3. Once the F12 prompt appears, press <F12> immediately. The Boot Menu appears.
4. Use the up and down arrow keys to select System Setup and then press <Enter>.
5. If you wait too long and the operating system logo appears, continue to wait until you see the Microsoft® Windows® desktop. Then, shut down your
computer and try again.

SpywareDr thank you for your reply. The date I am wanting to try and change though is this: BIOS Version/Date Dell Inc. A05, 8/17/2009. I was told if I could access the UEFI system settings and change it but I do not have the option to access this.

The BIOS version is hard coded into the BIOS firmware. If* there is a BIOS update available for it, you could apply that and then check and see what date it shows now.

The * means I rather doubt there will be a current update available for that old a BIOS. :(

You can change the current date/time however if you are trying to change the date of the bios itself, you are not going to do that task.
Technically it is possible to do what I think you are asking however it requires a very high level of skill to edit a bios file, flash the bios to the new edited file. This is one of those things that IF you have to ask how to do it, you do not have the necessary skill set.
