The problem is a flat BIOS battery. This battery keeps the Date & Time and other laptop setting stored in the BIOS. When the battery is flat then these settings are lost when you switch off the laptop. You need to replace the BIOS batters thn go into the BIOS to set the Date & Time then you will not have further problems.
The date and time is supplied with the caller ID information from your phone service provider. When you get a call, the date and time will be set. (If you don't have caller ID, there's no way to set the date and time otherwise. I've always wondered who came up with such a silly design.)
CRC= real time clock. 0175 means your eeprom data was lost. Solution? Check the 3V battery under the ram cover. Replace battery then set date and time. If done correctly the machine should work. If the machine will not work after the above suspect the System board. It is almost always the CRC battery though.
