Sounds like your BIOS battery might be dead The battery is what keeps power on your computer in order to keep hardware information stored while your computer is turned off Generally the Battery life is about 2 years If you're planning on changing it yourself you should first contact your computer vendor to make sure it is not against your warranty.

I hope this helps.
