<<Is that the right area that you were talking about where I would change to the hard drive?>>
<<If so, since there is nothing listed does that mean try to change the CMOS battery?>>
It's not that simple...replacing the CMOS battery is what I would do, since the BIOS apparently is not reflecting proper data. Someone else might do something entirely different.
HP Mini 1000 is the model, examples of the CMOS battery for that system are at http://www.ioffer.com/i/oem-genuine-hp-mini-1000-cmos-rtc-battery-507707-001-203556770
Manual for system at http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01683469.pdf
, pages 13-14 show the RTC/CMOS battery.
Since this is a laptop and I am not a trained tech of any sort...I would take the system to a shop and have them change the RTC/CMOS battery, with the understanding that doing so might not change the problem.
