Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

hey you need to describe what type of error message you get
 Invalid system disk
    Boot failure
    Hard disk error
    NT boot loader missing
    Missing operating system

If you recently attached any new hardware equipment like speaker or some other then try to disconnect them and restart your PC

    If the message also shows (assuming) "Press F1 to Resume"/ battery related then you can start your PC and can work normally, however data/time may not correct ! Later you can fix this type of problem by replacing a new battery. If you are not comfortable, ask for an hardware expert.

    It may be possible that the battery on motherboard that keeps the date and time when the system is powered off has failed. You can replace it and that may keep the date/time and eliminate the error. How old is this PC?

    I agree with Todd.  It sounds like a problem with the battery.

    And as ToddN2000 mentions, it'd be the internal CMOS (or similar) battery for the motherboard, not the large "laptop" battery. Different laptops each have their own procedure for locating and changing any internal battery.

    Might be battery related problems already is there, which I mentioned in my earlier discussion. It is better to ask any hardware person/ it it is under warranty, call vendor's customer care.

    Then either it needs work by a qualified technician or it needs to be replaced with a new laptop.
