Bios battery is shot from the sound of it... Not the regular battery.... it's usually inside and not normally replaceable by the end user.

WEll if you are comfortable taking a laptop apart you could pull it and see if you can find a replacement otherwise the only other choice is take it somewhere and see if they can replace it for you or you can just learn to live with it...
