Hi i'm Rain.
Ye it sounds like you BIOS is corrupted. If your unable to get to DESKTOP to save anything you may have lost it all . you could replace the harddrive and save the old one to see if you can have the data pulled from it. Reinstall Windows . Windows has the correct bios settings . This will correct your problem . If the time and date will not stay set you may need to replace your CMOS battery.

There will be a small yellow colour CMOS Button nearby the RTC battery on the motherboard.
Try pressing that button for 30sec after removing the power cable from the Power Supply Unit(PSU).
Try powering on the system and chk.
If it doesnt rectify the issue, purchase a new motherboard
