Startup anomalies

On startup lately instead of going straight to logging on/password I've had to choose F1 to continue or DEL to enter setup. F1 has then got me to log on as normal BUT date has gone to 31 December 2001 and time to 23.03! So I've had to reset these every time. Can anyone explain what's gone wrong and how I can put things right?
Thanks.

Sounds like the motherboard battery needs replacing click here

Many thanks, VoG, it was the battery which I replaced successfully.
