I think you have to change the battery from the motherboard.

Well,

you might have to enter the BIOS, usually the second option (probably 'F2' in your case). Then set time and date to the right values. Exit the BIOS with the option 'Exit saving changes' or 'Save changes and exit' or similar. See if the problem still persists, especially after the computer has been off power for a couple of hours.
If you continue getting that message then probably something's wrong with your motherboard, leaving you with two options...

- live with the problem

or

- replace the motherboard

But first try what I said above. Chances are that it solves your problem. Lets not assume the worst for a start... ;)

load optomized defaults then set the date and time. save and exit. your system should now update the dma data and boot as normal...

Thanks a lot andy and hexit! The problem has been resolved now :) 
Like you suggested, I pressed F1 to enter the BIOS. The date and time displayed there was correct so I pressed F10 to save and exit. thanks again :)
