Hi,

Your RTC battery has probably gone flat and needs to be replaced.

Here is a link to the service manual for your laptop. Go to p.6-53 to see how to replace the battery.

Here is a link to just one supplier for the battery. Google just the part number 378236-001-3 for other suppliers that may suit you better.
