However doing this everytime i turn it on is becoming annoying , any help would me much appreciated ...thanksmichael.\015

Answers :

This problem can be caused by two reasons:
\015\012
\015\0121) The CMOS battery is damaged or displaced ( apart from the external battery, there is a small battery which is connected to the motherboard)
\015\012
\015\0122) One of the RAM modules is displaced.
\015\012
\015\012
\015\012First make sure that the laptop displays the amount of RAM correctly. You do this by opening Control Panel -> System and noticing the amount of RAM.
\015\012
\015\012If it is okay then press F2 when your computer starts of to enter bios. Make sure that the date and time displayed are okay, if not change them accordingly. Then Save the CMOS and exit.

\015\012If nothing changes then let me know
