\015\012== DIAGNOSIS ==
\015\012
\015\012"Is the life of battery gone." ... Right now I'm tapping the tip of my index finger to the side of my nose. TRANSLATION: It's an absolute YES to this question.
\015\012
\015\012== DETAIL ==
\015\012
\015\012"Battery 0%" ... It's letting you know that your CMOS battery (also referred to as the "clock" battery) is at 0% charge ... dead! This small battery located within your laptop is what maintains the system's date/time, as well as the CMOS configuration data. That's why you're having to enter the current date/time subsequent to each time it's de-energized from AC power.
\015\012
\015\012== SOLUTION ==
\015\012
\015\012Referring to your latop's documentation (e.g., User's Manual) should help you perform the relatively simple task of locating and swapping out that dead battery for a new one.

\015\012NOTE:
\015\012If you got at least a couple years or so of life out of that dead ******, you did reasonably.

If your laptop is more than two years old, this might be due to the endup of battery life. You have to replace your battery pack. But the system date and time is not maintained through the main battery, there is a small battery pack attached with the motherboard that can be accessed by removing the underneath cover. Also change the motherboard battery pack to solve the problem of time resetting to factory default. Hope this will be helpful
