Getting Boot error - Date Time not set - F1 - Boot

HP Recommended
Example: Pavillion a1730n
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Every time I try to start up my computer, I get the black screen with some boot info and then:

Date and Time not set

IN blue is: F1 - Boot

When I hit F1, it boots fine.

How do I stop this from occurring?

Can't find your PC using "A1730n". Is the date and time correct immediately after Windows runs?


Two additional questions:


1. How old is your PC?

2. Have you ever replaced the CR2032 motherboard battery?
