It doesn't seem a CMOS battery issue, when this battery fails you'll lose CMOS settings and you wil see a warning about it when computer starts, the slow boot up can be caused by some virus, malware, spyware, etc in your operating system, but also it can be that you have too many applications loading when your operating system starts, with a good antivirus and PC utility (tuning up) software you can solve this.

You may need to Set the date and time in side your BIOS, you can enter inside BIOS by pressing DEL or F2 keys and set the date and time. Or you can set the time and date in windows mood also.

if still you are facing the same problem than you may need to change your CMOS battery, it can be located near RAM or may be near your H.DD inside the laptop. Replace your old CMOS battery.

My dell optiplex 360 pc is not boot properly, and date and time is not set. Now white I do?

If you start by going into the BIOS settings, set time and date then make sure it detects your hard drive and other periferals. Then try booting again.
If it cannot remember the settings, change the Cmos battery.
Hope that helps.

Dell inspiron 1525 battery not charging properly

You could try buying a new laptop battery. Typically laptop batteries lose their luster after a year.

If the laptop is booting up to a system clock for you to enter the correct date and time, then you may also need a new CMOS battery. They're a small battery on the motherboard.

Both batteries are fairly cheap but you may want to take the laptop to a certified tech to test or replace the CMOS.

OR if the laptop is still under warranty then get Dell to do it for you.

Cmos battery dead - needs to be replaced

Sounds like you need to change the CMOS battery, the time being wrong everytime you boot is a good sign but also it losing its settings in bios is also another sign
