Go into Setup, F10 during boot and set it to Default options then Save and Exit. If the problem returns after you disconnect power then your RTC battery is dead and will need to be replaced. (RTC = Real-Time Clock).

Does not appear that HP carries any parts for it so you will have to search on the web for them.
