Answers :

You need a new CMOS battery.
Specifically a CR1220.
Follow the manual here. (chapter 5-15)
You can find them cheap online, or hit a radio shack or batteries plus near you.
Hi there.
Your problem is the CMOS battery has run out and it needs replacing,
The CMOS battery is on your motherboard. It looks like a small watch\015\012battery. As for as dismantling it there are no directions on the\015\012Samsung website. Best thing to do is check You Tube on how to dismantle\015\012a laptop or by Scott Mueller's book on Amazon.com how to troubleshoot\015\012and repair laptops. There is not enough room on this website to go thru\015\012each step. Basically you turn it over and start taking out all the\015\012screws and panels until you get to the motherboard.
If you don't feel you are confident enough to dismantle it then take it to PC repair shop it should be fairly cheap.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
