There is a "CMOS" battery on the motherboard, it sounds like it has lost its power.

CMOS maintains certain system settings, such as the date and time when the computer is powered down.

If you power off the computer, open the case and look at the motherboard, you'll see a flat battery that looks like an oversized US Quarter. Get the number off it, go to a local Walgreens or hardware store and buy a replacement. Just put it back in the same position (usually with the "+" up.

You'll have to enter the bios routine (press "DELETE" on boot up, and enter the date and time) the first time you boot after replacing the battery. Look for the "Save Settings and Continue" message on the BIOS configuration screen.

These batteries need to be replaced every 2 - 4 years depending on your luck.

If that doesn't work, please let me know, and we'll explore other ideas. If it does, please mark this question as a "Fixya"

Good Luck,
