XP asks for date/time to be entered at each start

On my lad's PC.

Every time he boots up it tells him that he needs to enter the date and time even though I;ve updated it for him for GMT and current time/date.

Any ideas please?

Sounds like the battery on the motherboard is flat, without its power the bios cannot retain the time etc.

as Pauper states, change the CMOS battery...
