Talking Time-of-day clock stopped

I have been given this del inspiron 1545 laptop to have a look at and try to repair, all I get on it when pressing the power button is Time-of-day clock stopped there are two more things showing on the bottom right when booting up f2 setup and f12 boot options neither does anything when pressed. I am not all that clued up on laptops can anyone suggest what may be wrong. Thanks.

I have looked into this a bit more it seems that this is a dell problem which is well known. The clock chip has failed it can be fixed by soldering on a new one. Ime rubbish at soldering so I will just return to the owner and advise contacting del.
