    Is the CMOS Battery working ?
     Enter the BIOS setup and go to boot order and  try changing them

    You should have another error with that message, like keyboard error, no pointing device detected or other similar errors. Check that error and see what's supposed to be attached and it's missing or not connected properly.

    post a picture of that screen, then we can see what happens
    check if the system time is correct -  or make a change in the bios, and save it.
    then shutdown the pc ; disconnect it from AC for say, 10 minutes, and veriffy if the change was saved.
