Just press del to enter to the cmos and then change the date and time of cmos and press F10 to save your configeration if you start the cpu again and if you see the message "press F1 to continue and del to enter bios it time to replace your cmos battery inside of cpu is like a coin inside of your computer

This normally means the CMOS backup battery on the motherboard needs to be replaced. Most boards use a commonly-available 3-volt coin cell. It just pops into a holder on the board. Change the battery and that message should quit bugging you.
Look at the CMOS reset jumper, located near the battery:
For normal operation there should be a cap shorting pins 1 and 2. Set the jumper correctly, make sure it really shorts these two pins (once I've seen a jumper cap that didn't have the metal connector inside, only plastic), replace the battery and it should keep the CMOS settings.
I would replace the battery as the 1st thing, however I would also change your cpu fan for a new one and reseat the processor. Also get some decent cpu paste and make sure this is applied properly, and dont forget to wipe the old stuff off!
Does your case have anywhere were you can place some fans? It sound slike you have two problems to me, the battery being one and the overheating the second
Its due to your default CMOS setup does not match with your CPU configuration especially with CPU speed.
To fixed the above problem goto BIOS and navigate settings of CPU, speed etc. Set the speed with the proper value as per manual. And save the settings.
Infuture when you will load default, at that time also set the CPU settings.
The CMOS battery might not be connected properly or may be its not producing enough power as per needed by board. So have a look with another battery. Also clean the connection point of the CMOS battery.
