Even laptops have BIOS batteries, sounds like yours is dying. The are usually no easily accessible but if you want to completely disassemble your laptop you can replace it.

Completely disassemble the laptop??? what rubbish! the BIOS batteries are, more often than not, just under the keyboard and are easy to get to, you just have to remove the keyboard.

was hoping it would be something I could do myself. :(
It is something you can do yourself, what is the HP Pavillion model number for that laptop?
on some of the Pavillion laptops the RTC/BIOS battery is inside the HDD bay
