    Hi and welcome, if you have tried more than one battery and you know it's good, more than likely the motherboard is failing.

    How long has the date been incorrect? I know there were some 2K issues, but if that's the case.........then yes, a bios update may help, be aware though, that a bad bios flash can render the computer useless and you may need to purchase a new bios chip and/or motherboard depending on the setup.
