Hey man what happen with your PC... did you fix it?
I happen to agree that the problem could be on the BIOS batteries or something else. How long have you been using this PC?

Good luck

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
