If trying to set the date in a BIOS with the day first, month second, that may not work.. unless the BIOS program is set for that action.
Older BIOS types did show the key functions such as left or right arrow, for moving between settings, and the page up/page down for changing value.. or the plus/minus keys. Otherwise, the direct entry from the number pad should work.. if the "num lock" light is lit.
Don't forget to 'save' and then 'exit'. May be the F10 key will do that.
An alternative is to use the DOS command prompt, type in date and then set the proper date and time. Use a 24-hour format.
Also possible that your BIOS version is susceptible to the "Y2K" fault, where it will only accept a proper date on boot up, but not retain the setting.
