We had the same problem with our wall clock, but it was due to corrosion from a dead battery. The battery acid leaked inside and disrupted the connection between the metal contacting the batteries and the circuit (the one with the copper coil). We took everything out cleaned the contact points with acetone (nail polish remover). After that we had to bend the contact heads up just a little bit so they would contact the circuit again (I guess we bent them down a little when we were cleaning it). It worked just fine after that. I know it sounds intimidating to take apart a clock and put it back together but you're going to throw it out anyway. Just give it a try. It was kinda fun. Think of it as a puzzle. If you can't fix it, I imagine you can get a new motor at any hobby store or Michaels.

SOURCE: times of day clock stopped
you are experiecing with your CMOS battery so:
try taking the CMOS battery out
leaving for 30 seconds
make sure it's all unplugged from the wall
do that first
then press the power button after the 30 seconds
to drain all power
then put battery back in
and plug in and turn on
and if still problem remains then you need to change your CMOS battery.

It sounds like the battery on your computer is dying, and the battery cannot keep the clock running. If Dell's warranty is still valid, contact Dell, to get your computer fixed/replaced.
