You might have a dead CMOS battery that is causing your problems. It's a button type battery attached to your motherboard. Without the power from the battery the BIOS is reverting to the default date and time. It should be easy to replace - just be sure to insert the new one the same way the old one was inserted.

Good Luck
thanx dude
