Yep most likely.
Do you know how to get into the BIOS? If so, get into the BIOS setup and set the time and date in there. Then turn off, and unplug your computer and plug it back in, turn it on and check if the time in the bios has reset. If it has, ring up HP if it's still under warranty. If not, take it to your nearest computer service place and have them replace the battery.

Date resets back to 2001 after being powered off


Try changing the time and date in the BIOS and then save the changes and exit. Then turn the computer off.

Wait a few minutes then turn the computer back on and if the date resets back to 2001 then that means the battery on the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced cause that means the BIOS isn't keeping information in memory.

The battery you would need is a cr2032 battery. Here is an enlarged image of the battery Im talking about:

Not keeping time


Go into the BIOS by pressing F2 when you first turn on the laptop. In the main screen you should be able to change the time and date. After you do that save the changes and exit and go into windows and see if the date and time is current.

Let me know how it goes.

Reset my system back in time


You can use the system restore tool to reset your system back to a date in past. Which operating system are you using? Because only Windows ME and later operating systems(windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Vista) have this option.

Date/time defauting to Dec 2000


Change the "battery" on the mother board. Sounds like it's weak and there's not enough voltage to maintain the BIOS memory.
