Sounds like the CMOS battery is dead or dying. You will need to change it.

If you are not comfortable in removing the side panel and doing this, then by all means find a friend or take it to a shop. This is a very inexpensive repair.

The errors you are getting are related to the cmos battery. A long shot is the main board (had that happen once), but it is really inexpensive and easy to change the battery.
You are probably finding that if you turn it off and back on right away that it will be ok. And the problem is more evident when it is off fore awhile.
You have to choose. The problem will not fix itself and you are putting off the inevitible.
