If this problem occurs with the restart of the PC then then you need to replace your CMOS battery. Usually this battery is responsible for keeping the settings of BIOS. And date & time is the setting of BIOS normally. If the battery is drained then you would have this problem.

CMOS battery is a battery on your motherboard. Open the case and find the battery. Take it carefully out go to local shop and buy there a replacement. Put it in - start the PC and configure the date and time. Turn the PC, wait for 5 minutes and turn it on. Check if the settings are kept.

Have you been getting a warning during boot and have to press F1 to continue?

You will know that the CMOS battery has failed, if your PC clock reverts to the same time & date when the power has been removed from the PC (During a power outrage or disconnection). This date that it reverts to, is usually a few years ago and is the date the BIOS was written by the manufacturer.

Even if your CMOS battery has failed, shutting the computer down should NOT cause the clock to reset.
In my experience, you have to disconnect the mains from the PC to mess up the clock.

Some people don't notice that their clock is out by years until they get Security Certificate problems

I'm not quite sure if I need to comment further.

I still think that my suggested allocation of points is fair.

It's most likely the CMOS battery.

The OP did not come back to the question, so who knows what the solution really is.
