Most likely cause is that your laptop needs a new CMOS battery (not the main running battery, I'm referring to the little battery that maintains the correct time and date and the BIOS configuration).

Getting at it to replace it requires some disassembly of the laptop.

The amount of disassembly required depends on the particular Presario model, and since you haven't mentioned the exact model number in your post I can't provide you with specific instructions.

Google it or ask a friend to change the battery for you.

Is not being able to see your game results a separate problem or do you think it's related to the bios messages?
