Hi MrDrift,

This link has some good steps to follow to solve this problem (incidentially it could be BIOS related and might be a bad CMOS Battery. If the battery is weak it could still keep the data and time properly but other settings could be lost). If you have a multimeter you could check the battery to see if it is run down, or it is cheap to just replace it anyway).
