    check to see if the computer has the correct time & date as might be a cmos battery issue.

    Have you tried entering bios/setup, going to Boot menu, and then looking for F1? Try that and check to see if F1's disabled, if so then enable it, save and exit and you should boot into Windows. If it doesn't save then you might have to take a look at the cmos battery.
