BIOS Help Please

My PCS computer is about 8 years old and when I turn it on I get the following message

Please enter Setup to recover BIOS setting
CMOS Date/Time Not Set
Press F1 to Run SETUP
Press F2 to load default values and continue

I press F2 to continue and it takes ages to load
It has been mentioned to me that the battery needs replacing is it that simple or could there be more issues
Appreciate any one’s help thanks
