sounds like you bios setting are screwed, possible issue with the cmos battery, might need to change that then go back in to f2 and defult the settings.... hope it helps

Try disconnecting it from the mains and removing the main laptop battery and leaving it out for a few of minutes. My Dell work lappy does it all the bloody time.
