Hello,

Try this 1.

May be your CMOS battery is now dead. Try replacing your CMOS battery in your

laptop. You can download the manual from your manufacture website to find

the instructions to replace the CMOS battery.

Or

You can follow the instructions from this video

Don't worry, CMOS battery is inexpensive.

After replacing the CMOS battery, go to bios and set date & time.

Good Luck.
