Answers :

The CMOS Battery has gone Kaput/Weak.Change that and everything will work fine.\015\012Let me know if any other problems.
There are two likely reasons for this. One is a dead battery on the motherboard. Remove the battery and check it with a multi-meter or just replace it. If the battery is good, your BIOS is probably corrupt. Go to your manufacturer's website (hp.com in your case) and flash your BIOS to the latest version. If that does not work either post back with your exact computer model number and operating system and let's do some more digging.
