CMOS Battery Bad
Real Time Clock Error.
How do I replace the CMOS Battery
It is inside,on the motherboard,it is a watch type battery or a vinyl coated battery pack that plugs in the board,if it is the watch battery type,be carefull removing it.the holder can break off the motherboard very easy,might be able to get to it by removing the plastic piece above the keyboard that surrounds the power button,otherwise dissassembly will be necessary

I just replaced the battery in my 342t and it's pretty easy. Take a look at this video:
The process is almost exactly the same. Remove two screws from the back, open the screen laying it out flat then use a small screwdriver to lift the trim piece between the keyboard and the screen (it just pops up but it's easiest if you start on the right side just above the + key). Once that bar is out of the way, the keyboard can be pulled forward toward the screen 1/4" or so to release it then folded back over the front of the laptop (careful with the ribbon cable). The battery is under the aluminum panel on the far right side of the motherboard. Only one screw holds it down but it can be a little finicky to remove since it's wedged among other body pieces. The battery is a cr1220 and is socketed so it's easy to replace. Reverse the process to reassemble.
